Adjustments to Nonresident Arkansas Waterfowl Permits Proposed
USA -(Ammoland.com)- There may be some limits to the amount of time nonresident hunters may pursue waterfowl on Arkansas Game and Fish Commission controlled wildlife management areas in the next year.
After many phone calls, letters and posts to social media from Arkansas hunters, the AGFC is proposing one possible way to give resident hunters additional preference on public land in The Natural State.
Currently, a nonresident waterfowl hunter is required to have a special nonresident WMA permit to hunt on many of the public areas focused on waterfowl management.
They may purchase a five-day permit for $25 or an annual permit for $100, and may hunt any WMA.
“We’ve heard from a lot of people that they think we’re not charging enough for nonresidents to come and hunt our famous waterfowl areas,” said AGFC Director Jeff Crow. “And many residents surveyed believe the amount of nonresidents on these WMAs has gotten too high. The last thing we want to do is restrict hunters from using the public hunting lands we manage, but we do want to work with our residents to increase their level of satisfaction during their hunts.”
