Night Hunting and Spotlighting
Alabama takes hunting deer at night very seriously. On a first offense you could lose your hunting privileges for a year and sit in the Baldwin County jail for up to 10 days. After all of that, the state can seize your guns and vehicles. Subsequent offenses could be much worse. If you have been ticketed for night hunting, you definitely need legal counsel to protect your rights.
Hunting and Fishing Without a License
Gone are the days of pitching your gun into the bushes when the Game Warden pulled up. Alabama makes a great deal of money from the sale of hunting and fishing licenses and so it takes violations of these requirements seriously.
Bag Limits and Seasons
In the last few years there has been a lot of controversy over short seasons and restrictive limits, particularly when it comes to red snapper. However, violations of these restrictions can rack up fines and costs quickly. A few fish over the line may not seem like a big deal when you’re out on the water, but without good representation it can be costly in the courtroom.
