When you are getting ready for the hunt, a small but potentially important item in your gear should be the 2011-12 Hunting Guidebook of the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission.
This is the interpretive summary of the AGFC’s hunting regulations. It also has things like forms for permission to hunt on private lake, forms for giving your game to someone else, deer tags and much more.
During deer season, don’t forget to use the AGFC’s Telecheck system to check your game. The new number is 866-305-0808 and is toll-free. Call it from anywhere when you are ready to check your game.
If you are an over-65 hunter, a 3-year disabled license hunter or a younger-than-16 hunter, write this number down and keep it in your billfold. The number is in the AGFC’s Hunting Guidebook and is also on the game tags in the Guidebook. For others with wildlife conservation licenses or sportsmen’s licenses, the number also can be found on hunting license tags.
Game-checking can be done three ways – the call to 866-305-0808 or online at www.agfc.com or the AGFC’s iPhone application. When you’ve finished checking your game, you’ll be given a check number that must be recorded on the license. So make sure you have a pen ready.
Take a guidebook along. They are free and available all over the state. One in your pocket, backpack or vehicle could come in handy.
