Possible Extension of 2014 Deer Season
A proposal for an extended 2014 February deer season will be presented to the Conservation Advisory Board (CAB) at its meeting on February 9, but it will not be voted on until a future meeting. Advisory board rules require that no regulation is voted on during the same meeting it is introduced. This is to give the board time to hear feedback from the public and do any necessary research on the issue. The boundaries for the proposed extension in southwest Alabama are still being fine-tuned and will not be revealed until the February 9 meeting. The CAB meeting, which is open to the public, will be held in the State Capitol Auditorium in Montgomery and begins at 9 a.m. Those wishing to address the board must register between 8-8:30 a.m. The proposed extension refers to the 2014 season, and not the 2013 season. Deer season will end as scheduled on Thursday, January 31, 2013,” said Conservation Commissioner N. Gunter Guy Jr.
