LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas Game and Fish Commission members have shortened the turkey season from 18 days to 16 days.
The season framework was approved Thursday after commissioners reviewed recent harvests and brood surveys and received input from turkey hunters.
The commission says the statewide turkey season will run from April 14 to April 29 in zones 1, 2, 3, 4B, 5, 5B, 6, 7, 7A, 8, 9, 10 and 17. In zones 4, 4A, 5A and 9A, the season will last from April 14 to April 24. Zone 1A will be closed.
The 2012 youth turkey season hunt will be held April 7 and April 8 in all open zones.
