LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Opening day of modern gun deer season is Saturday, Nov. 10, and the start of waterfowl hunting season follows on Nov. 17.
With the main events of Arkansas’s hunting seasons finally upon us, the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission (AGFC) hosted a special live Facebook feed (watch video below) Thursday morning to offer a forecast and update hunters on the latest news from the field.
Trey Reid, AGFC assistant chief of communications, hosted the live feed to offer some pre-season excitement.
Various experts from AGFC’s staff joined the show to talk about several topics of interest to hunters in The Natural State.
They included experts on deer, waterfowl and habitat management, as well as some AGFC staff who have been working on chronic wasting disease (CWD) who explained some new options for hunters to have their deer tested for CWD.
