ALABAMA EXTENDS WHITETAIL DEER SEASON TEN DAYS INTO FEBRUARY 2015 TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE LENGTHY RUT
White Oak Plantation is offering hunting for a limited number of hunters during January and 10 days into February to take advantage of Alabama's extended season. As the lodge is not open at any other time of the year, this affords the serious hunter an opportunity to harvest a mature buck that has not been hunted prior to January.

White Oak Plantation is a family owned and operated whitetail deer hunting lodge located in Macon County in the famous Black Belt of Alabama. It has set the standard for other lodges in Alabama for over 32 years. The lodge has been the site of countless storied trophy buck hunts and big bass and bream harvests. Many of the most world renowned outdoor writers in America have visited the lodge and recorded their fishing and hunting trips in national magazines.
White Oak Plantation is the one whitetail deer outfitter in Alabama that surpasses hunter expectations. The family offers experienced hunting guides, one of the best opportunities for hunters to harvest mature bucks, sumptuous meals, clean, comfortable, private bedrooms, Direct TV, daily maid service and one on one family to hunter interaction. Our goal is to produce the total Alabama deer hunting experience. The most common comment from hunters upon their arrival at White Oak Plantation is that they feel as if the are “coming home."
Whitetail deer hunts are offered during the "prime" hunting period for the Alabama Black Belt.
Hunts are only offered the month of January during the Alabama Black Belt whitetail deer rutting season. There are only three hunters per hunt or a maximum of 25 hunters for the entire month of January.
The pressure on the whitetail deer herd is strictly controlled with hunts rotated between various food plots and bedding areas twice a day. Successful whitetail deer hunting in January and the comfort and satisfaction of the hunter is the total focus of White Oak's experienced hunting guides and staff. The results of the concentrated attention to preparation of the land, stands, roads and food plots may be seen in the success ratio of mature bucks taken to the number of hunters for the past three years. This is comparable to any of the 200 or more lodges in Alabama.
White Oak Plantation offers excellent fishing in addition to the outstanding whitetail deer hunting.
For the hunter who wants versatility, there are two lakes stocked with bass and bream that may be fished at anytime during their stay. The larger lake is only steps away from the lodge. The last two fishermen who fished the lakes in October took over 200 bass in three days of fishing. For the trophy bass fisherman, bass of over 12 pounds have been taken. Creel limits are re set periodically, dependent on what has been taken, to control the size, health and number of fish.
