Alabama's Conservation Advisory Board made numerous changes to hunting and fishing regulations in the state during a meeting on March 26. The expanded deer season is contingent on the proposed mandatory Game Check harvest reporting system making it through the legislative review process.

Strengthened existing regulations aimed at preventing the unintentional import of disease pathogens such as Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) on hunter harvested deer (elk, moose, caribou, white tail) carcasses taken in other states. The new addition restricts the importation of harvested animals, with certain exceptions relating to deboned meat, thoroughly cleaned parts and finished taxidermy, from states where CWD occurs. The carcasses could potentially carry the same pathogens as live animals.
