LITTLE ROCK — More than 6,000 unclaimed deer hunting permits will be available Oct. 11 at 8 a.m. at the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission headquarters, as well as at regional offices across the state, according to a release by the AGFC on Thursday afternoon.
“Typically, we have about 3,000 leftovers available,” AGFC permit program coordinator Ashley Bean said in the release. “This year, we had almost the same number of applicants, but they were focused only on a few hunts, leaving many unclaimed permits throughout the state.”
Permits will not be available for purchase through phone or internet sales. A single person can purchase a permit for up to three friends and themselves, though they must have a name, date of birth and a driver's license number or Social Security number for each person wanting a permit. The permits are nontransferable and hunters who have already drawn and paid for a permit may purchase leftover permits.
