Arkansas turkey hunters may now apply for limited permits on several Arkansas Game and Fish Commission wildlife management areas for the 2012 turkey season.
Hunters may apply online by either clicking on the turkey banner at the top of the AGFC Web site, or in the lower right hand corner, hunters can click on Permits: Apply/Check Status.
To apply, hunters are required to have an email address.
If you do not have an email address, the AGFC email will be used and is posted in red on the application.
Notifications will be emailed to the hunter.
Those hunters who are using the AGFC email will receive notification in the mail.
No paper notifications will be sent to hunters who provide their email address.
The same site may be used (Permits: Apply/Check Status) to periodically check permit status.
Successful notifications for permit winners will be sent in early February.
Successful notifications for those chosen during the second drawing will be alerted in late February.
All unsuccessful applicants will be notified after the second drawing.
No leftover turkey permits will be sold over the counter.
Applications must be submitted online by the application deadline to be eligible. Each person may submit one application for each type of permit hunt (youth turkey and WMA turkey).
Applying is free, but successful applicants must pay $10 to receive WMA hunt permits.
