LITTLE ROCK (AGFC) - Arkansas big-game hunters are required to have their actual license with record of game in their possession before hunting. Big game includes deer, bear, turkey, elk and alligator.
Hunters who purchase licenses over the telephone or online can have a confirmation number and carry it with them while hunting small game like squirrels, rabbits, doves, quail and waterfowl. The confirmation number is valid for 14 days. But they have to have their actual license in hand while hunting big game. This regulation has been in effect since 2004.
