SB116 ‘Hunting on land without permission’ has been filed

League of Humane Voters - Alabama

Alabama Senate State Seal

SB116-int (PDF)(Hunting on land without permission)

SB116-int (DOCX) (Hunting on land without permission)

 SYNOPSIS: Under existing law, it is unlawful to hunt,  trap, capture, kill, or destroy any wild game on the lands of another without the written permission of the landowner or person in possession or control
0f the land, and a violator is guilty of a misdemeanor and is subject to suspension of his or her hunting permit. This bill would repeal the provisions and enact new prohibitions with revised penalties, including increased fines and periods of suspension of hunting privileges. This bill would also allow a court to order a person convicted of hunting or killing wild game on the land of another without permission to pay restitution for the value of the loss or damage to wildlife resources and would provide for the forfeiture of hunting gear and firearms used to commit the violation.
