Arkansas makes 65+ hunter season change; approves dates

From the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission

-- The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission has approved regulation changes as part of the 2010-11 hunting season-setting process. One change would allow hunters 65 and older to participate in the January portion of the statewide youth season.

The 2008-09 season was the first season that hunters 65 and over were allowed to harvest a deer when accompanying a youth hunter during the November youth season. After examining the harvest data, less than 5 percent of the harvest during the two-day youth season was attributed to 65+ hunters. The move will simplify deer hunting regulations, while providing additional hunting opportunities without negatively affecting the resource.
