 Hunt in Alabama's "Black Belt" 


Located in the heart of Alabama's "Trophy Black Belt", Southern Sportsman Hunting Lodge offers the best outdoor recreational experiences possible.


Experience the thrill of a covey of quail rising beneath you, sharpen your shooting skills with sporting clays, listen to the first gobble of the morning in the spring woods, or the anticipation of a whitetail buck as you hear his steady approach to your stand.


Plan a hunt now with your family and friends, a corporate retreat for your best clients and co-workers, or just come and get away from it all.

One thing for sure, we understand how to make your trip an enjoyable one.

A few Testimonials from past clients


Dear Dave and Jim,
I have been in the service business all of my life and have always tried to keep my customers experience a great one.  It is nice to see when I spend my money that a company like yours reciprocates!!  I have been to your lodge four times and have not been disapppointed but simply delighted.  The "experience" should be the main focus of anyone seeking an outfitter, for if you take away the experience then your just a "meat hunter" and you should stay home and go to your local market.
I would highly recommend the Southern Sportsman Lodge to anyone seeking that "ideal experience", Great home cooked food, concerned, safe and understanding guides, clean comfortable lodging and all at a very "High value" for your dollar!!
Gentlemen, Thank you for all you do and please keep up the good work, I would like to be one of those older gentlemen that keeps coming back for some of your "Good Southern Hospitality"
Your Friend

"To anyone considering a “classic” southern style turkey hunt, look no further. Dave and Jim are outstanding hosts! 
 The property provides a wide range of diverse locations in which to hunt.  The guides are knowledgeable of the area and strive to provide you with the kind of hunt that you want. The accommodations are comfortable, the food delicious, and most important the people are fantastic. Everyone went out of their way to see to it that we (and our non-hunting wives) had a great visit, and they were successful! Looking forward to a return trip."
