JONESBORO, AR -- Almost every deer hunter has a proposal of how they think deer season could be improved. Arkansas Game and Fish Commission members want to hear everyone's opinion who will give it. Public meetings were held in 11 locations across the state to help in that process. In Jonesboro, the suggestion sessions were so popular many had to stand to hear the comments.
Robert Zachary from the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission explained, "Our regulation setting process is an on-going thing. We're working on regulations year round in one form or another."
Game and Fish leaders are hoping improvements in the 2004-2005 deer season will make more hunters happier with their kills.They not only want residents' opinions on the suggestions, but also other ways to improve the season.
