60-Day Season Proposed for Waterfowl Hunting in Arkansas

LITTLE ROCK (AP) - A 60-day waterfowl hunt ing season, with a six-bird daily bag limit, has been proposed by the state Game and Fish Commission staff.  The commission heard the proposal from its staff at the panel's monthly meeting yesterday.

A news release from the agency said season dates and limits are scheduled for action at next month's meeting.  Luke Naylor, the agency's waterfowl program coordinator, said surveys indicate more than 8 million mid-continent waterfowl this summer, with another 5 million on ponds in Canada.  He said those numbers bode well for Arkansas duck hunters. 

As proposed by commission staff, hunt ing would be permitted November 17th through December 18th, December 26th through January Sixth, and January 12th through 27th.  Youth waterfowl hunt dates would be December 22nd and 23rd. 

Proposed bag limits are the same as last season: six birds total, including no more than four mallards, only one mallard hen, two wood ducks, two redheads, one black duck, one pintail, one canvasback, three mottled ducks or two scaup.  The staff also proposed banning use of electronic decoys by hunters, but not until July First of next year.
