Three Permits Up for Grabs at Buffalo River Elk Festival

In General by RMEFLeave a Comment

If you live in Arkansas and didn’t get around to applying for one of Arkansas’s coveted public land elk-hunting permits in May, you still can do so. Three special public land elk hunting permits will be available to register for on-site at the Buffalo River Elk Festival, June 22-23, 2018.

“We want to offer multiple ways for people who are serious about wanting an Arkansas elk tag to get a chance,” said Wes Wright, elk program coordinator for the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission. “It also adds a little extra excitement to the drawings at the festival.”

One on-site permit is for either a bull or cow elk, and the other two are for antlerless elk only. While thousands of applicants apply for the main public land permits, only a few hundred have their name in the hat for the on-site tags.
