Registration Begins for Urban Deer Hunt in River Valley

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Starting today(April 1), hunters in the River Valley can register for the upcoming urban deer season.

One restriction: archery equipment only, such as longbows, recurve bows, or compound bows; crossbows are not allowed.

The goal is to reduce the number of deer in city limits. There is no bag limit or antler restrictions.

However, you do need to meet a list of requirements. They include: attending an urban hunting orientation with a $50.00 confirmation fee.

You must also have a valid urban bowhunting permit issued by the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission.

"Well you don't get that permit without jumping through a few hoops first, " said local hunter Howard Robinson,  "I guess it's worth it. The people going through it are really doing a service to the city of Fort Smith."

The season will take place from September 6  to January 31, 2015 in eight Arkansas communities including Fort Smith and Barling.

Registration closes May 1.

        Hop onto my site if you have nothing better to do, asshole. I will give you a few syllables that I won’t place here.
        This is what I do so get used to it. The more I get trolled, the more I look for articles at the sites. Re-blogging is encouraged by, the parent of the platform and is why paid reader panes have these blogs brought to bloggers. If you have a problem, and the balls, hop onto my page, douchebag.
