Welcome to Arkansas, the Natural State! :thumb:My family and I have just moved to Arkansas. I grew up in Texas and have lived a few years in Louisiana and I am pretty sure this is where we will settle down and call home.
Brother, you live in "Deer Central" as far as Arkansas is concerned. Cleveland county consistantly ranks in the top 5 deer producing counties in the state. I've been hunting Cleveland county for 30 years. There are deer clubs everywhere in your neck of the woods, just keep your ears open and you'll have plenty of opportunities to join a local club.But... being new starts the whole process of finding a place to hunt etc. We live near Rison in Cleveland County. Does anyone know of any places available to hunt? WMA's... Leases etc.
No problem at all hunting your own land, as long as you've got an Arkansas hunting license.Also... we own and live on about 3 acres out of town. About one acre is cleared and about 2 acres are still wooded (at least until I can find someone who will come clear my pines.). Would there be any problem with hunting on my own land? There are deer EVERYWHERE around here.
I'm pretty sure it carries over from state to state. Sounds like you're set to have a great deer season in Arkansas! :up:Thanks in advance for all your help getting us settled in. I have a son that will soon be 13 and he is anxious to hunt. One other question. We just took and passed the hunters safety course in Louisiana last year. Do we have to take it again or do Hunters Safety Certifications transfer from state to state?
