Spots are still available for Marion Academy's annual fundraiser deer hunt. Contact me today for more information!
We have spots available for the hunt this weekend. We would love to have you and a friend come on down and hunt with us. The weather is cold, the bucks are coming out and chasing the does, and our ladies are making plans to cook some really good food. Just let me know, and we'll reserve your spot. Orientation and the first meal is at 6:00 on Friday evening.

Marion Academy is hosting its annual charity deer hunt January 14-16, 2011.
Our annual event is a great opportunity for you to hunt some outstanding whitetail deer in the world-renowned Black Belt of Alabama. Local landowners invite you into their best stands to enjoy deer hunting in the peak of the rut. This is your opportunity to meet some of the nicest people, savor some of the tastiest Southern food, and enjoy some of the best hunting the Black Belt has to offer.
When? January 14-16, 2011. Check-in is from 12:00 CST to 6:00 pm at the Gateway Inn on Friday. Check-out is 12:00 after the morning hunt on Sunday.
Where? Marion, Alabama. Accommodations are at the Gateway Inn.
How Much? $900 includes your lodging, meals, and 3 semi-guided hunts. Additionally we provide transportation to and from the hunting spots (or you can drive), and cleaning and quartering of the game. A portion of this is tax-deductible because Marion Academy is a 501(c)3 charitable organization. You will be receipted for tax purposes. Non-hunting guests may attend the weekend for $300. Private rooms at the Gateway may be reserved for an additional $50.
What should I bring? You should bring a weapon, ammunition, flashlight, binoculars, hunting clothing, a cooler, and rain gear is recommended.
What can I shoot? Alabama law allows for one buck and one doe per day. Landowners may have additional guidelines to follow. There is also the possibility of seeing coyotes, bobcats, or wild hogs.
What about a hunting license? Each hunter will need to secure a 3-day hunting license and may need to present proof of completion of a hunter's education course.
