LITTLE ROCK – The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission will sell 106 WMA Deer Hunt Permits that were left over after this year’s application and draw period this week. Permits will be available for purchase beginning 8 a.m., Friday, Aug. 4.

Most highly sought WMAs were completely filled by the special draw, but there are four WMAs with permits remaining:

George H. Dunklin Jr. Bayou Meto WMA
Muzzleloader Hunt, Oct. 21-25, 2023
27 permits left

Dr. Lester Sitzes III Bois D’Arc WMA
Muzzleloader Hunt, Oct. 21-29, 2023
35 permits left

Harold E. Alexander Spring River WMA
Youth Modern Gun Hunt, Jan. 6-7, 2024
19 permits left

Freddie Black Choctaw Island WMA East Unit
Mobility Impaired Modern Gun Hunt, Oct. 21-23, 2023
25 permits left 

Each permit will be sold for $5. A hunter may purchase one permit for each of the remaining WMA permit hunts, and there is no limit to the amount of permits a person may buy. However, many hunts are on the same days, so hunters should pay attention to the dates as well as the location before purchasing.

The leftover permit sale is on a first-come, first-served basis, and remaining permits will be gone quickly after the online sale opens. Visit and click “Special Hunt Applications” to get your permit.
