New coyote regulations also provide opportunities for taking feral hogs on WMAs
LITTLE ROCK - As the modern gun deer season winds down, sportsmen may want to consider taking advantage of increased opportunities available for coyote hunting on Wildlife Management Areas owned by the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission. This year the coyote hunting season has been expanded on most Commission-owned WMAs and is open during daylight hours from July 1 through Feb. 28, and reopening the first day of spring turkey season and running through June 14with no bag limit. Firearms restrictions on these areas have been relaxed and hunters can now use rifles up to .30 caliber to take coyotes during the entire season.

While the extended coyote season applies to all WMAs, hunters on areas managed cooperatively with other agencies are still restricted to the use of either a .22 caliber rifle or whatever equipment is legal for other open seasons. Hunters should refer to the Commission
