Changes are coming to Arkansas’s hunting regulations this fall, but you can be sure to stay up to date with “Outdoor Hotline” on Thursday, Oct. 6, at 7 p.m. This live, call-in program will give Arkansas hunters the latest information to ensure a safe and memorable 2016 season.

Arkansas Game & Fish Commission (AGFC) officials will join host Tony Brooks to discuss the coming fall and winter hunting season, with an emphasis on questions regarding the state’s first hunting season since the detection of chronic wasting disease in deer and elk. The agency’s waterfowl biologist will also provide a report on duck and goose hunting in the state, and AGFC panelists also will discuss feral swine and methods being used to control them.

Have questions? We’d love to hear them! You can submit questions by phone at (800) 662-2386 or by e-mail at outdoors@aetn.org.

Expert panelists — including Jeff Crow, AGFC director; Brad Carner, AGFC chief of wildlife management; Col. Pat Fitts, AGFC chief of enforcement; Luke Naylor, AGFC waterfowl program coordinator; Cory Gray, AGFC deer program coordinator; and Ralph Meeker, AGFC assistant deer program coordinator — will be live in our studio to provide answers.

The program is underwritten by the Arkansas Game & Fish Commission.
