— The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission says the deer harvest in Arkansas this year is at a record high with parts of the season still two months away from ending.

The commission said Wednesday that more than 196,000 deer have been checked thus far to break the record of 194,687 set during the 1999-2000 season.

Archery season will continue through Feb. 28 and a three-day holiday deer season is open from Dec. 26-28. There will be a muzzleloader hunt Dec. 28-31 and a youth hunt on Jan. 5 and 6.

An estimated 300,000 people go deer hunting in Arkansas each year.

With 700,000 hunters, this should be a good source of more and new tax revenue for the state. It is basically free game, a lot of whick live on public or private land that does not belong to the hunters.

JackAbbott, that statement is very insightful as to your overall mindset (and your progressive liberal ignorance) Your "serf mentality" is painfully evident. You say that this is "free game" that does not belong to the hunters, as if they are stealing some resource from the federal gov. The land and all its resources belong to the people of this country, not the federal government. And you obviously don't hunt or you would know that hunters do pay for this through hunting licenses, private leases, conservation organizations, etc.
