Because the Horn Swamp is private land and does not offer hunts to the public, this page will give you information on where you can enjoy some of the great hunting and fishing this region of the state has to offer. Also shown are links to Alabama hunting information as well as other local sites of interest.
School Benefit Hunts
Wilcox Academy hosts several hunts each year including a bow hunt, gun deer hunt, and a turkey hunt. Please see this link for more information.
Several other area schools also host excellent deer hunts. Morgan Academy (Dallas County) and Marengo Academy (Marengo County) are two of those. Follow the link to Morgan Academy's website for more details on their hunt. For the Marengo Academy hunt, please contact the school at 334-295-4151. Also, Hooper Academy in Montgomery is now offering a deer hunt.
The Moore Academy Alumni Association holds a hunt each year. Monies generated are used in the restoration of the Moore Academy school in Pine Apple, Alabama.
These benefit hunts provide access to private lands that are not normally open to the public. Most lands used in the hunts are well managed and not accustomed to extreme pressure as is some commercial properties.
