Never got the chance to hunt out of state yet for what ever reason. Been thinking on trying a booked a hunt at Giles Island. It’s not to far away from where I live, so I figured it might be a good start. That’s what you get for being in one state your whole life and all the folks you know are in the same place!! I wouldn’t trade it for the world though!

Have hunted Arkansas for several years they have some of the best opportunity for success for a nonresident bow hunter on public land I know liberal limits and good deer management they only allow limited rifle and ml hunts outta only thousand of acres avalible state wide and it doesn't break the bank on several of the wmas they have strict antler management rules allowing bucks to mature

I wish you the best when you do make it up there. Is there camping available up there on the WMA or do y’all stay off site somewhere?

I hope they dont make some drastic changes regarding non residents as they did with the NR duck hunters for the 2018-19 duck season. I am still in bewilderment why they dont want non residents to duck hunt public land or the money they contribute to the economy.

I believe that got voted down?

It’d kill what little economy is left in those areas

Negative, they passed it for the 2019-2020(I meant to say these years in my previous post) season. Not this upcoming year though.

Understandable, but I figure this is just the tip of the iceberg for things to come in AR. From what it seems, all it takes is a few thousand resident hunters to complain over there and things change. Once the resident big game hunters are able to see what the resident duck hunters were able to "accomplish" , I suspect that they will jump on board with their non resident grievances :bash:

How about that!

It’d be nice if Mississippi limited nr turkey hunters too!

But then again I don’t want all states to start.

Be careful what you wish for. I am not so sure that in the future(not my lifetime) that there will be no such thing as public land hunting. Especially on federal land. Hunting is all about politics now. If you think that hunters on a whole have a voice anymore, you are sadly mistaken.

I know. Try to duck hunt in mo on public. It’s almost impossible.

Politics is just about in everything these days

Yep, I dont know about MO. But I do know that I doubt that any commissioner in both MS or AR has ever stepped foot on public land much less hunted any of it. Both agencies are being run into the ground by appointed self serving commissioners that almost always have ulterior motives.
