Sen. Sanford full statement on hunting rule

Posted: Updated:

I will try to reverse the rule before [the start of hunting season] via the Legislative Council. It is obvious the Department of Conservation is hell bent on raising revenues not merely counting the number of animals harvested. Currently there are many biologists that research and report herd data on Alabama's Deer & Turkey population. 

I have requested that the Department of Conservation try a voluntary reporting system on animals harvested, that would 1) allow more time to report and 2) would not have a fine. Hunters are on the front line of Animal Conservation and we do not need the threat of a $500 fine to address a fabricated problem that stems from a departments desire to gain more revenue.
