Registration for this year's alligator hunts is open until July 11 at 8 a.m. Only Alabama residents and lifetime hunting license holders who are 16 years and older may apply for a tag. Four hunting zones are designated this year and 260 tags will be divided among the zones. Hunters are allowed to register one time per zone, and the cost to apply per zone is $22. If a person is selected for an Alligator Possession Tag at two or more locations, they will be allowed to choose which location they would like to hunt. The other spot(s) not chosen will be filled from the alternates list, which will be randomly selected.
