The AGFC works with cities who are experiencing issues with wildlife damage from deer to create special hunting seasons specifically geared toward reducing herd numbers in and around those cities. The Arkansas Bowhunters Association and Bull Shoals Bowhunters Association work with the AGFC to manage these hunting opportunities and ensure safe, ethical hunts with special consideration for the thoughts and ideals of non-hunting Arkansans.
Visit the Arkansas Bowhunters Association website to get details about and register for the 2018-19 urban archery deer hunt in the following cities:
- Fairfield Bay
- Cherokee Village
- Horseshoe Bend
- Heber Springs
- Hot Springs Village
Hunters wishing to participate in the Bull Shoals or Lakeview hunts should contact the Bull Shoals Urban Bowhunters Association. The two men to talk to there are Dale Forbus at firstname.lastname@example.org (870-405-2369) and Bob Wyble at email@example.com (870-421-0587).
