Alabama Division of Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries’ Adult Mentored Hunt (AMH) Program is designed to provide a new hunter or a hunter with limited experience a one-on-one hunt under the guidance of a veteran mentor. AMH’s are for individuals interested in learning how to hunt, be it to revive a family tradition, to learn more about consumptive outdoor recreation, or simply wanting to put wild game on the dinner table.
AMH Program events are conducted in a safe and constructive environment and provide participants with the opportunity to learn from well-skilled hunting mentors. Participants will be exposed to the many facets of hunting including:
- Firearms safety
- Equipment needs
- Game cleaning
For most mentored hunts, the equipment needed will be provided or offered at no cost to the participant. Mentored hunt programs are currently available for deer, turkey, squirrel, and rabbit.
