-- Hunters who didn't draw a deer permit for an Arkansas wildlife management area hunt this year still have a good chance to get one. More than 6,000 unclaimed permits will be available beginning 8 a.m., Oct. 11, at regional offices and the Little Rock headquarters.
Some permits available are for some of Arkansasís most coveted wildlife management areas. The high-demand permits remain because people who had enough preference points drew the permit, but did not pay. Unclaimed permits were put into a second round of drawings, and again, some hunters who drew permits did not pay for them.
Permits are available only at regional offices. There are no phone or internet sales or reservations available. Each applicant can purchase a permit for themselves and up to three friends, but they must have a name, date of birth, and a driverís license number or Social Security number for each person.
Purchased permits are nontransferable. Hunters who have already drawn and paid for a permit may still purchase leftover permits.
