MOBILE, Ala. (AP) -
Alabama's deer hunting season has opened, but make sure you are paying attention to the new rules of the hunt.
This year many hunters got their license online. Game wardens say that is fine but make sure you have a way to prove that you have your license. You could either have a paper copy or keep an accessible one on your phone.
The main change to the hunt this year is that all deer killed must be registered. Jim Daughtery, Conservation Enforcement Officer, says there's an app that you can put on your smartphone. It's the Outdoor Alabama app and it's free.
One of the other changes is the hunting time from thirty minutes before sunrise to thirty minutes after sunrise.
