Proposed Season dates for Arkansas Duck Hunting

Well the Arkansas Game and Fish has released some information about the proposed season dates, new motor restrictions, and a few other possible changes. A big proposal is making Government Cypress GTR in the famed Bayou Metro, ehhh, Meto a walk in only establishment. Currently there is no maintained boat access to impoundment.

Also something I myself have never had a problem with but a proposal to ban Airboats on all Arkansas WMAs, does not seem to be a problem where we hunt but Airboats apparently are causing problems with levees and disturbing other peoples hunting.Arkansas Game and fish comission banning air boats on Arkansas WMAs

The biggest deal to me and alot of people is the proposal for restrictions on boat motors. I know some areas need this restriction, Hurricane, Bayou Meto, etc. but I disagree all commission maintained WMAs need a 25 horse restriction, means I have to get a new boat if this goes through.

All in all seems there are some good proposals and some bad ones, head over to the Arkansas Duck hunting forum for further discussion and a link to the PDF for download.
