A State Senator Looks to Reverse Alabama Hunting Law
A north Alabama senator is looking to reverse legislation requiring hunters to report their kills to state officials.
Republican Senator Paul Sanford of Huntsville says a new law requiring hunters to report deer and turkey kills to state officials within in 24 hours is unnecesary.
Hunters are now required to report by telephone, a smartphone app, or online.
Failure to do that could cost you a fine of up to $500.
State officials say the game check rule helps them monitor populations of deer and turkeys in the state and keep track of how many animals are killed every year.
