Herber Springs, AR -(Ammoland.com)- Veterans injured in service can apply for free deer hunting permits at Greers Ferry Lake.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is taking applications from veterans for a muzzleloader deer hunt Nov. 4-6 at the lake.

Hunting blinds and safe access routes to the sites will be provided.

This hunt is a joint effort among the Army Corps of Engineers, the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, and the Dale W. Langford Marine Corps League Detachment 1323. Veterans must submit a completed application by close of business Sept. 2. Sponsors will hold a drawing in September to select up to five hunters who will be notified by Oct. 1.

Applications are available at the Army Corps of Engineers Greers Ferry Project Office, P.O. Box 1088, Highway 25 N., Heber Springs, Ark. 72543 or by calling 501-362-2416. Office hours are 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., weekdays except federal holidays.

    1. A disabled Veterans in Ohio get all licenses free, you only pay for the duck stamp and deer permit.
      I’ve been getting them since 2003.
      I can’t walk very far anymore, but get the hunting license just for the sake of showing support for hunters and hunting.
