Water Valley Lodge is the destination for outdoorsmen looking for a First Class Hunting Operation. Located in rural Choctaw County, Alabama, Water Valley offers Whitetail Deer Hunting, Eastern Turkey Hunting, Quail Hunting and Wild Hog Hunting.
Alabama Whitetail Hunting season runs from October 15 until January 31 each year. During an Alabama Whitetail Hunting season Wild Hogs may also be hunted (Wild Hogs, Varmints and Predators may be hunted year round in Alabama)
Add to this that there is no season nor are there any bag limits on Varmints or predators and Alabama is home to the Famous January Rut. What this means is a hunter at Water Valley Lodge may hunt Whitetail Deer, Hogs, Predators and Varmints in the same hunt, with multiple limits on all.
February is the designated "best" month for Hog Hunting at Water Valley. February is a cold month and the Deer Hunting pressure is over. The guides at Water Valley are able to devote all efforts to Hog Hunting only after Deer season ends. What a great time to be in Alabama!
Turkey Hunting at Water Valley sees some years at 100% success rate. This success does vary from year to year but our guides are second to none. Multiple kills during a Turkey Hunt is common.
One of the great things about Quail Hunting at Water Valley is that it may be combined with Deer Hunting or Turkey hunting (Quail hunting is not offered in January.) Another great aspect about Quail Hunting in Alabama is the length of the season. The season runs from October 15 through March 31.
Whitetail Deer Hunting in Alabama
Whitetail Deer Hunting at Water Valley Lodge located in Alabama. During your Deer Hunt at Water Valley Lodge, you will find at least three things to be true: we are efficient and organized, our land is plentifuland the terrain is varied and we have plenty of great comfortable stands.
Deer Hunts in Alabama Rifle Hunting: Water Valley uses almost all types of stands on the hunt; tripods, ladder stands, lock-ons, shooting houses in the air and on the ground. Some hunters will be on the ground in large clear-cuts. If hunters would like to bring their climber it is no problem.
Bow Hunting: you will use a Black Water Creek lock-on as well as your own personal climber if you choose to bring it. Guides will have a variety of stands already set up. At the lodge a display of stands will be set up along with targets for the bow hunters to practice with.
Turkey and Deer Combo Hunts
Turkey Hunting: you will hunt with a guide who will provide calling and locating of birds. If you want to do your own calling, it's not a problem. The guide will still be there to help transport the hunter, locate birds and help with the layout of the land.
Turkey Hunting Combo:During Turkey season we offer a Turkey/Hog combo where we hunt Turkeys in the morning and Hogs in the afternoon. Quail hunting is also available with a Turkey Hunting Package. Hunters hunt Turkeys in the morning and then spend the afternoon hunting Quail.

Alabama Water Valley Hunting Lodge
Hunting Lodge: Water Valley has sleeping facilities available for up to 58 people. The lodge house sleeps up to 10 people. The bunkhouse will accommodate 28 people in bunk beds. We have recently added 8 additional rooms that will sleep another 20 people. Each room has a full bathroom, with some rooms having two. We feel that private baths are very important, as sharing one with strangers generally is not comfortable. Meals are in a large dining room with a fireplace & TV. Your guide meets you here the morning before each hunt.
Whitetail Deer Food Plots
Land Management: Farming is a very important aspect to the management program. Each winter there are over 200 winter food plots planted for wildlife. As important is the spring and summer planting, which helps wildlife ease through the dry months of summer.
