We are gearing up for our annual Alabama World Champion Bowhunter competition. This is a FUN event, in the RELAXED setting of the legendary Great Southern Outdoors Wildlife Plantation, located in the heart of Alabama’s famous BlackBelt region – Union Springs, Alabama. Seven two-man teams will check in on Tuesday October 24 for orientation and draw for exclusive territories. On Wednesday the 25th they will scout their territories in the morning and begin hunting in the afternoon. Hunting will continue Thursday, Friday and end on Saturday noon. The second flight of teams will arrive on Sunday the 29th, scout and hunt on the 30th, hunt the 31st, Nov, 1st and morning of the 2nd. The winning team from each flight will then return and compete as individuals for the SUPER-BOW championship hunt during the peak of the rut, February 8-10, 2018. Both winning teams will also receive a FREE hog hunt during the summer of 2018, and the ultimate individual winner will receive a beautiful trophy and FREE entry into the next year’s Alabama World Champion Bow Hunter competition. Total value of the prize package is $8,000! The entry fee is only $1,200 per person, and includes all meals and lodging for this 5-day event! You don’t have to be an expert archer to enter, just a good hunter. This event is about much more than just archery skill; it is an opportunity to use everything you know about hunting in a real-world situation going after free range game under the rules of fair chase. Each hunter is permitted a total bag of 7 animals: 1 buck, (8 points or better), 2 doe, 2 hogs, 1 bobcat and 1 coyote. Contact Great Southern Outdoors for more information – (334) 738-5066.
