Almost any hunter has heard of the famed Black Belt area of Alabama. This area is rich in minerals and nutrients which many wildlife species need to survive. You find the Black Belt region lies above the Coastal Plain and below the Appalachian foothills, and stretched through 23 counties. The area itself is known because of their nutrient-rich soil and the agriculture that can grow there.
Each year, the area produces some of the best white tail deer in the country. In fact, the area has consistently produced trophy bucks each year. Though it makes up less than 4% of the state’s landmass, it is one of the most highly traveled areas in Alabama for hunting and fishing purposes. If you have ever considered visiting the Black Belt area, now is the best time as it is continuing to thrive.
Of course, one of the negatives that comes with the popularity of the area is that there is not an overwhelming amount of land available for you to hunt. If you do not know someone who personally owns land in the area, it can be nearly impossible to hunt there. However, one way that many visit and harvest excellent bucks is by staying at a lodge. One of the best lodges in the Black Belt region is Westervelt Lodge.
Westervelt Lodge is known for their ability to produce quality hunting experiences to travelers, as well as, beautiful housing options. When you book a package from this great company, you not only get the hunt of a lifetime but also have dining and housing options available. Their lodge itself has private rooms, bathrooms, and many of the packages include meals during your stay. Of course, their beautiful hunting land is what truly sets them apart.
“At Westervelt Wildlife, we are lucky to own thousands of acres on some of the richest soil here in Alabama. We have taken our time to develop this soil, growing beautiful food plots and designing the best shelter for a variety of wildlife’s needs. This has brought in new species, grown the herds found here, and overall created better hunts for our many visitors each year. If you would like to experience the Black Belt region for yourself, look no further than our great lodge,” states Steven Carroll, the Lodge Manager.
Though you may have heard of the area and Westervelt Lodge because of your love to hunt whitetail, this is not all that you will find here.
