Deferred Hunter Education Code

The Deferred Hunter Education Code is a one-year permit that allows a person without hunter-education certification to legally hunt. A hunter may apply and use a Deferred Hunter Education Code as long as they:

  • Are at least 16 years old and born after Dec. 31, 1968, and are not hunter-education certified;
  • Are in the immediate presence of an adult who is at least 21 years of age and possesses valid hunter education certification, or who was born on or before Dec. 31, 1968;
  • Possess a valid Arkansas hunting license;
  • Have not been convicted of or forfeited bond for prior violation of Hunter Education Certification Requirements, and
  • Are not under AGFC-sanctioned hunting privilege revocation
