Urban deer hunt begins Nov. 10

Thursday, November 8, 2012

The Eureka Springs urban deer hunt approved by the voters and shepherded by City Council will officially begin on Friday, Nov. 10 and run through Thursday, Feb. 28, 2013.

According to the city, hunters were checked with the state for hunting violations prior to being approved for this special hunt. Hunters who applied after the initial 15 were chosen were placed on a waiting list in the order in which they were approved.

All approved hunters must have provided a copy of written permission to the city from the property owner(s) where the hunter will be hunting. All does must be harvested and checked in through AG&F online at www.agfc.com or by telephone at 866-305-0808. Proof of the harvest must be provided to the city before a hunter may harvest a buck or receive another doe tag. Doe tags issued by the city will not count against a hunter's bag limit. The city has 50 doe tags to be issued during this season. All hunters must hold a valid Arkansas Sportsman's license. Hunters born prior to Ja. 1, 1969, must also have a valid Hunter Education card.

Below is a list of properties on which permission to hunt has been established, as well as a list of approved hunters.

  • I pray that I don't have to witness a bleeding, dying doe stumbling painfully across my path. This makes me not want to go into town. Sad stuff.

  • A friend of mine said she wished the hunters would only kill the diseased or very old. Unfortunately I don't think that is part of the " hunter's training". If I am wrong I hope they will go that way. I, myself, will avoid driving into Eureka as much as possible in the next few months. Are there dates listed anywhere for when what properties are being hunted???

  • You two must be smoking too much pot or something.

  • Well you two, you both may as well stay inside your abodes with windows shuttered for the next month. Life goes on, not only inside Eureka, but all over the state as we hunters fill our bag limits. I hope it sounds like WW III has begun. BECAUSE of human intervention, there are too many deer. BECAUSE of human intervention, deer are getting hit by vehicles, and lay suffering along side the road.
