ADCNR said a total of 260 Alligator Possession Tags will be issued for the five hunting zones. There is an administrative fee of $22 to apply for a tag. Individuals can only register one time per zone.

The tag itself is free, but "selected hunters and their assistants are required to have valid hunting licenses in their possession while hunting," according to ADCNR.

In addition, those wanting to apply for a tag need to be either an Alabama resident or an Alabama lifetime license holder who is 16-years-old or older. The latter group can apply for an Alligator Possession Tag even if they have moved out of state.

The selection process is random and done by computer. Once a person is selected, their tag is non-transferable. If an applicant is chosen for more than one zone, they can only to chose one of them in which to hunt.
