Arkansans invited to voice comments on proposed 2012 turkey season regulations LITTLE ROCK (AGFC) – The annual public meetings concerning spring turkey season have passed, but there's still time to send any comments or concerns to the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission. Just visit www.agfc.com and click the "Talkin' Turkey" banner at the top of the page to take a quick online survey.

The following considerations are being surveyed for the 2012 turkey season:

  • Elimination of preference points for WMA permit turkey hunts
  • Elimination of drawn permits for the youth hunt on some WMAs
  • The continuation of an 18-day turkey season
  • The continuation of opening day being on a Monday in mid-April
  • The continuation of a two-bird bag limit with no jakes allowed (except youth)
  • The formation of a 2,800-acre walk-in turkey hunting area on Petit Jean River WMA

Survey respondents also are encouraged to speak up about any concern or comment they have regarding the Arkansas turkey program in a blank comment box.

Comments will be accepted through Sept. 17.
