All unclaimed turkey hunt permits for Arkansas’ popular Wildlife Management Areas will be available online beginning at 8 a.m. Feb.15.

To purchase hunters should click here.

Each year, a limited number of permits are available on wildlife management areas. Permit winners were drawn randomly by a third-party vendor Jan. 18. Successful applicants were given until Feb. 1 to pay the $10 processing fee for their permit, however, a handful of permits still remain for many WMA hunts.

“We want to make sure as many people as possible have the opportunity to enjoy these hunts,” said Brad Carner, AGFC chief of wildlife management. “But the online sale goes very quickly for the small amount of permits left. Anyone wanting one of these unclaimed permits needs to be ready to click start as soon as 8 a.m. hits.”

Hunters can plan their purchase because a finalized list of unclaimed permits will be available by 5 p.m. Feb. 13 by clicking here.

Only one permit may be purchased at a time.
