Little Rock, AR -(Ammoland.com)- It is time to get a new hunting license. Old ones expired June 30.
Arkansas hunting licenses are different from fishing licenses in that they all expire on June 30. Fishing licenses expire one year from date of purchase.
A purchase of a 2014-2015 hunting license gives Arkansans opportunities to make a couple of other handy purchases or worthy donations at the same time – online or at a license dealer.
A year’s subscription to the colorful and popular Arkansas Wildlife magazine can be made when buying a hunting license. It costs $12 for a year, and this includes the acclaimed AGFC calendar with its spectacular photographs.
License buyers can also make a contribution of $1, $5 or $10 to Arkansas Hunters Feeding the Hungry.
This statewide program is a vehicle for getting nutritious deer and other game meat into the hands of the needy. Hunters bring deer, ducks and other game to processors affiliated with the program. These are made into packages, frozen and distributed through food banks and other charitable organizations.
But it costs money even though most of the processors do the work for reduced prices. Earmarking a donation to Hunters Feeding the Hungry when buying a license is an easy way to help with the program.
