Hunting in Arkansas: 6 Things to Know Before Applying for a Hunting Permit for Adults

By    |   Thursday, 28 May 2015 12:02 PM

On several million acres of Arkansas public land game large and small abounds. White tailed deer, black bear and elk are among the big game that hunters can pursue in season, and turkey, dove, and duck are no less popular.

Even alligators are available for the taking in the Natural State for those lucky enough to be drawn for a permit.

But before hunting in Arkansas, there are rules by which to abide. Here are six things to know before applying for a hunting permit for adults:

1. Hunter Education
Those born after 1968 must complete a hunter education program and keep their certification on hand at all times when hunting. However, those under 16 aren’t required to be certified as long as they’re with an adult 21 or older who is. The state does recognize hunter education cards from other states when non-residents wish to apply for a license.

2. Deferred Hunter Education Code
This permit allows hunters, once in their lifetime, to obtain a one year hunting license without having to take a hunter education course.

3. Lifetime Licenses and Permits
A handful of licenses and permits are available for sale that allow sportsmen to make a one-time purchase instead of an annual one. These licenses include waterfowl and trout permits (available only at the AGFC Little Rock Office and AGFC regional offices) and a resident hunting and fishing license and sportsman permit.

It waives the permit fees for the sportsman’s lifetime for trout, leased land, alligator, elk, and wildlife management areas as well as state waterfowl stamps. The latter is only available at the AGFC Little Rock Office.

4. Trapper Permit
In order to trap furbearers, residents must have a trapper permit. The permit is free, but a hunting license in required.

5. Private Property
Hunting, fishing, and trapping on private property is prohibited, unless the landowner has give permission. If a “no hunting” or “no fishing” sign is posted, written permission must be kept on hand by everyone in the hunting party.

Permission must also be granted to shoot a firearm within 150 yards of another residence unless a hunter is taking game on his own property.

6. Seasons
Seasons for different game vary by zones, so before planning a hunting excursion, identify in what zone it will take place to ensure the proper licenses are obtained and weapons are being used.
