New law thanks military with expanded hunting, fishing opportunities

MONTGOMERY - Governor Bob Riley has signed into law a bill that allows Alabama residents on leave from active duty in the Armed Forces to hunt or fish without obtaining a hunting or fishing license.

The new law also allows non-resident active duty military personnel stationed in Alabama to purchase hunting and fishing licenses at the same price as Alabama residents. The new law is Senate Bill 221 sponsored by Senators Jack Biddle (R-Gardendale) and Zeb Little (D-Cullman).

"No other state respects, supports and appreciates the sacrifices made by our military more than Alabama," Governor Riley said. "This new law is another way for us to thank our men and women in the military for their brave service."

"Every Alabamian is indebted to the service men and women who are serving overseas. This is just a small expression of our gratitude," Senators Biddle and Little said in a joint statement.

"This new law should make it easier for our men and women in the armed services to enjoy the outdoors," said Conservation Commissioner Barnett Lawley.

The cost of a hunting license for Alabama residents ranges from $7.50 to $58.50 depending on the type of license. Non-residents pay $30 to $250. The cost of a fishing license for Alabama residents ranges from $5 to $23.50. Non-residents pay $10 to $89 for an Alabama fishing license.

Individuals can purchase hunting and fishing licenses over the Internet at www.outdooralabama.com.
