    In this state the DNR has sharpshooter teams to cull herds if needed. I don't know if they can kill on private land but they probably can with a warrant. This states prohibits hunting in all kinds of places. But they do have special hunts.

    I am pretty sure they cannot come onto private land and do that I am pretty sure that violated some of the bill of rights. Back in Ohio were I grew up hunting was not allow in Cuyahoga National Forest so they would use bonded bounty hunters to come in an cull the over populated deer herd every few years. That always caused a nice uproar by the animal lovers.

    I do the same, though the land in TN is currently a lease. Luckily I don't have to pay to hunt on my land in AL.

    Alabama doesn't have property taxes? Hunting licenses are free?

    I think he was referring to the fact that in Alabama (a many other states) you do not need to purchase a hunting license to hunt your own property. Typically the owner and their immediate family can all hunt for free (except them pesky property taxes).

    Yes they have property taxes which, though lower than most, infuriates me to no end.
    And no hunting licenses aren't free for most people but you do not need a license on your own property. You also do not need a license if you are over 65 but I've got a long way to go for that.

    I always prefer keeping the government out of such things. And, I really don't mind paying for the privileged of using someone's land for hunting. If I don't like the price, I can look elsewhere. I've hunted almost exclusively on day leases the past two seasons. If I give THAT a rest, I have plenty of hogs and deer on my little place.
