LITTLE ROCK – 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 will host a special live Facebook feed from 10:30 a.m. to 11:15 a.m.Thursday to offer a forecast and update hunters on the latest news from the field.
Trey Reid, AGFC assistant chief of communications, will host the live feed to offer some pre-season excitement. Various experts from AGFC’s staff will join the show to talk about several topics of interest to hunters in The Natural State.
“We’ll talk to experts on deer, waterfowl and habitat management,” Reid said. “We’ll also visit with some of our staff who have been working on chronic wasting disease and will share the latest news with hunters, as well as explain some new options for hunters to have their deer tested for CWD.”
In addition to live interviews, staff will be busy monitoring the feed for questions to ask presenters as time allows. Staff also will provide answers to those last-minute questions from viewers that may not be covered on the air.
