RULE 002.00.13-003. 2012-13 Trout Fishing and Turtle Harvest Restrictions Regulations Clarifications; Arkansas Aquatic Nuisance Species Plan; 2013-14 Statewide General Hunting Regulations and Seasons

Proposed 2013-2014 General Hunting Regulations Approval

Committee: Regulations Date: April 17, 2013

Explanation:

Recommended revisions for hunting related regulations and new proposals were presented at the March meeting for Commission review and consideration. The regulations committee voted unanimous to strike the recommendation to change the checking time from 24 to 12 hours from the proposals last month. The amended proposals will be presented at this meeting for Commission approval. These proposals include calendar adjustments, code revisions and code clarifications. Included, with the backup material, is a summary of recommended changes and a color coded copy of affected codes.

2013-2014

Hunting Regulations Summary of Proposals

Deer

1. Add all states and Canadian Provinces to the carcass importation restriction list in code 05.26, by adding this language addendum S1.01 can be deleted. The lands between the Mississippi River levees in neighboring states of Tennessee and Mississippi will be excluded.

Code/Addendum: 05.26, S1.01

Justification

The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission approved the carcass importation restriction in October 2005 as an attempt to decrease Arkansas's chances of acquiring CWD via infected carcass importation. Currently, 36 states and five Canadian provinces have a ban or restriction on the importation of hunter harvested cervid parts.

With the spread of CWD, new states are becoming positive on an annual basis. The spread of this disease is directly linked to the transportation of live cervids and cervid carcasses.

In order to increase Arkansas's protection and increase consistency in our regulations, this proposal would place all states and Canadian provinces on the carcass importation restriction list. This would result in hunters following the guidelines on animal parts that can enter Arkansas regardless of origin.

2. Eliminate adult mentors from possessing firearms for their hunting purposes during the special youth modern gun deer hunts.

Code: 11.05

Justification

The AGFC has set aside two weekends exclusively for youth hunters to deer hunt. During these hunts, youths are required to be accompanied by an adult either 18 or 21 years old, depending on the youth's hunter education status.

Wildlife officers have observed the accompanying adult carrying a firearm with the intention of harvesting game or feral hogs. The purpose of the Special Youth Modern Gun Deer Hunt is to solely provide opportunity for the youth. This proposal would eliminate the ability of the adult to carry a firearm, with an exception for concealed carry, while hunting with a youth during the Special Youth Modern Gun Deer Hunt.

3. Add "Private Land" to the antlerless only modern gun deer hunt.

Addendum: A1.01

Justification

To ensure hunters are aware this hunt applies only to private lands and not public lands.

4. Modify boundaries of deer zones 11 and 13.

Addendum: E1.01

Justification

The current boundary descriptions of deer zones 11 and 13 near Hot Springs has resulted in confusion among some hunters. The confusion results from highway construction and development around Hot Springs that was not in place during the initial development of common boundaries of deer zones 11 and 13. This proposed change would increase clarification and assist with an area west of Hot Springs that is currently experiencing a high deer population and increased human deer conflicts. This small portion of deer zone 11 will be placed in deer zone 13, which has a much more liberal season structure.

5. Modify harvest strategy for deer zone 11 to allow doe harvest the entire muzzleloader and modern gun seasons.

Addendum: A1.01

Justification

Doe harvest in deer zone 11 has gradually been liberalized. In 2003, the total doe harvest was 703 does (1 per 3,236 acres of deer habitat). The female harvest has progressively increased to a high in 2012 of~2,400 does (1 per 948 acres of deer habitat). This proposal would not increase the doe bag limit for deer zone 11, but would allow hunters more opportunity to harvest a doe. The expected result of this proposal is a slight increase in the doe harvest while maintaining a conservative season structure. This proposal would also assist in balancing harvest sex ratios which have been has high as 8:1 (buck:doe), but recently around 2:1 (buck:doe).

The most recent biological data from 168 females shows that 45% percent are 3.5 years old and older. These data suggest that doe harvest can be increased without negatively impacting the deer herd. This proposal is a small step in increasing the doe harvest without modifying the bag limit.

6. Add deer zone 3 to the Private Lands Antlerless Only Modern Gun Deer Hunt.

Addendum: A1.01

Justification

The deer season structure in deer zone 3 has been gradually liberalized. In 2003, a total of 1,093 does were harvested in deer zone 3 which equates to a harvest of one per 2,087 acres of deer habitat. Recent doe harvest densities have been around one per 300 acres of deer habitat. This harvest density is far more acceptable in terms of deer management. Harvest sex ratios have peaked at 5.9:1 (buck per doe) in 2003 to an average of 1.5:1 (buck per doe) in recent years.

A total of~500 doe biological samples have been collected annually from deer zone 3; of these samples, as many as 57% have been 3.5 years of age and older. This suggests that doe harvest can be increased without negatively impacting the herd. This proposal would conservatively increase doe harvest without modifying the bag limit.

7. Remove the Wildlife Importation permit, VS-127 form, and trailer sealing requirement from the live cervid importation code.

Code: 09.11

Justification

The current requirements for moving live cervids through Arkansas require the owner to obtain a VS-127 form and the container must be sealed while in the state. It has been determined by the USDA that these requirements contradict the national CWD Program and justifies preemption. After discussing this topic with the Commission's Regulations Committee, it was recommended that we remove the permit requirements, VS-127 form, and the sealing of the trailer, but maintain the requirement for prior notification before individuals transport live cervids through Arkansas.

Turkey

No change.

Alligator

No change.

Bear

8. Change archery season opening date in bear zone 2 to October 1 instead of September 15 (including WMAs in zone 2), and re-instate the quota of 150 in bear zone 2.

Addenda: A1.08, C1.02

Justification

The opening date of bear season in zone 2 was moved to September 15 to help increase the bear harvest. The target harvest of 150 bears was never reached and the season was liberalized to "catch up" for years of under harvest. Three of the last five years have had harvests exceeding 200 bears. Nuisance complaints over the past two years have indicated that the population has been effectively reduced. The harvest strategies for the zone need to be moved back to the more conservative strategies of the past which includes moving the opener back to October 1 and re-instating the 150 bear quota. The 150 bear quota needs to be separated by month to ensure that gun hunters have bear hunting opportunity. Approximately 20% of the bears in zone 2 have been harvested after November 1. The quota should allow harvests of 125 bears during the October hunt and 25 bears during the November hunt. An October 1 opener will ensure a consistent annual opening date. It will also serve to ease harvest pressure on adult females, which are more susceptible to harvest earlier in the year.

9. Require nonresident bear hunters to purchase a nonresident annual all game license to harvest a bear.

Code: 03.04

Justification

Non-residents currently account for approximately 16% of the annual bear harvest. The AGFC does not currently have any special license requirements for non-resident bear hunters. In fact, bears may be taken by non-residents with the purchase of a $50 one-day hunting license since bear tags do not exist. AGFC staff examined non-resident bear hunting fees for several states and determined that costs ranged from approximately $200-$500. The simple solution would be to require non-residents to purchase an annual $300 hunting license rather than creating a special bear tag.

Captive Wildlife

10. Insert language in the requirements for Wildlife Breeder/Dealer, Commercial Wildlife Hunting Resort, and Game Bird Shooting Resort permits.

Addenda: F1.01, F1.02, F1.03

Justification

This will clarify the current code to ensure that captive wildlife facilities are not permitted unless they have acquired their stock in a legal fashion. This will also make it clear that animals may not be captured from the wild in Arkansas to become stock in these facilities.

11. Remove exception 4 from code 05.04.

Code: 05.04

Justification

This exception is redundant as exception 2 already references code section 9 in regards to sale of wildlife.

12. Implement standards for caging of non-native wildlife, require that male and female non-native wildlife be separated so as to prevent breeding, and require specific documentation of ownership.

Code: 09.02

Justification

This proposal will institute provisions that already apply to native wildlife pets. The caging standards are necessary to prevent escape of non-natives that may have a negative impact on wild populations of native Arkansas wildlife. The separation of the sexes is necessary to prevent breeding, for which a Wildlife Breeder/Dealer permit is required.

Elk

13. Add an exception to allow private inholdings on a WMA to participate in the Elk Management Assistance Program.

Code: 02.02

Justification

This change will allow for any private lands within the five county Elk Management Assistance Program (EMAP) zone to participate in the private lands elk hunt. Currently, these in-holders cannot participate in the hunt according to code 02.02. This will also help reduce the number of complaints caused by nuisance elk.

14. Remove 2 pm curfew for EMAP private land elk hunt. Allow antlerless hunters to hunt all day and call the wildlife hotline at 7 pm each evening to determine if the antlerless quota has been filled. Bull hunters must stop hunting between the hours of 12 pm-2 pm and must call the wildlife hotline at 2 pm to determine if the bull quota has been met.

Code/Addendum: No code or addendum change required.

Justification

Private landowners would like to be able to hunt elk during the evening. Allowing the EMAP permit holders hunt all day will help fill the EMAP quota more quickly. This will allow landowners who have elk on their property more opportunity to harvest an elk.

15. Add crossbow as a legal method for harvesting elk.

Code: 06.10

Justification

Crossbows are allowed to hunt all other big game species. This will help streamline the elk regulations to be cohesive with other programs regulations.

16. Clarify and revise the public land elk zones by adding the descriptions in the code which were established prior to the 1998.

Addendum: E1.10

Justification

These zones were established prior to the 1998 hunting season, which is when elk hunting was first allowed during the modern era but were never added to the addendum. Since elk movements have changed over the years, these zone boundaries require modification.

17. Change the season dates from September to mid-October for elk zones 1, 2, 3 and 4.

Addendum: A1.09

Justification

September bull elk hunts were implemented to allow hunters the opportunity to hunt during the bugling season. Changing the hunt to mid-October will still allow for hunters to enjoy a bugling season bull hunt, and also give the ability to remove some antlerless elk. Moving the first season to mid-October will allow calves to reach a sufficient weaning age before cows are harvested. This change will help spread the antlerless hunters out over two seasons instead of putting them all in one season like in the past. As the elk population increases it will be difficult to safely permit enough hunters to fill the antlerless quota during one hunt.

Quail

No change.

Squirrel

No change.

Rabbit

No change.

Furbearer

18. Clarify code 03.03 so that it doesn't seem like a trapping license is needed to hunt furbearers.

Code: 03.03

Justification

The current language implies that a trapping license is needed to hunt furbearers.

19. Restore a reference to code 17.01 which outlines legal trapping methods that can be used to take nuisance furbearers under exception 3 to code 05.10.

Code: 05.10

Justification

This will ensure that only legal trapping techniques are used for the take of these nuisance furbearers.

20. Remove exception 3 from Code 17.07.

Code: 17.07

Justification

None of these animals are furbearers and it is not necessary to include them in a code dealing with purchase and sale of furbearers.

21. Restore requirement for non-resident trappers to report on their harvest.

Code: 17.09

Justification

This requirement was in place but was lost during the code revision permit when separate code requirements for each type of permit were consolidated into code section 3. This report allows us to monitor harvest by non-resident trappers, which can account for significant percentages of harvest of certain species.

22. Remove exception 3 from addendum A1.05 that reference nuisance coyote.

Addendum: A1.05

Justification

This exception is not necessary as it is covered in exception 1 of the nuisance wildlife code 05.10.

23. Clarify that bobcat and coyote seasons are closed during turkey and squirrel seasons only on WMAs where turkey or squirrel season is closed.

Addendum: C1.09

Justification

The current code implies that if turkey season is closed on a WMA then no bobcat or coyote hunting is allowed at any time.

WMA General Regulations

24. Modify antler restrictions on Dave Donaldson Black River WMA from the 3 point rule to 15-inch inside spread or 18-inch main beam.

Addendum: C1.14

Justification

The intent of the Sweet 16 is to increase diversity in our public land management strategies. These 16 areas are designed to manage the females to ensure a healthy, productive, and balanced deer herd. Males will be managed for quality bucks with majority of the harvest reaching 3.5 year old. The 2012 regulation package contained changes in antler restrictions for 10 of the Sweet 16. This proposal would result in all the Sweet 16 WMAs having an antler restriction that are specifically tailored to move majority of the buck harvest into a 3.5 and older age class.

25. Modify antler restrictions on Dr. Lester Sitzes III Bois d'Arc, Hope Upland, McIlroy Madison County, Scott Henderson Gulf Mountain and Shirey Bay Rainey Brake WMAs from the three point rule to 12-inch inside spread or 15-inch main beam.

Addendum: C1.14

Justification

The intent of the Sweet 16 is to increase diversity in our public land management strategies. These 16 areas are designed to manage the females to ensure a healthy, productive, and balanced deer herd. Males will be managed for quality bucks with majority of the harvest reaching 3.5 year old. The 2012 regulation package contained changes in antler restrictions for 10 of the Sweet 16. This proposal would result in all the Sweet 16 WMAs having an antler restriction that are specifically tailored to move majority of the buck harvest into a 3.5 and older age class.

26. Exempt youth hunters from antler restrictions on Freddie Black Choctaw Island Deer Research Area WMA East Unit.

Code/Addendum: 15.01, C1.14

Justification

Youth hunters are not currently required to abide by antler restrictions on WMAs except the Freddie Black Choctaw Island Deer Research Area WMA East Unit. Allowing youth hunters to harvest any deer will provide additional opportunity for youth hunters.

27. Decrease the deer bag limit from four to three deer during the modern gun youth permit hunt on Freddie Black Choctaw Island Deer Research Area WMA East Unit.

Addendum: C1.01

Justification

This change will make bag limits for all permit hunts on Freddie Black Choctaw Island Deer Research Area WMA East Unit the same.

28. Allow the use of any caliber weapon to take bobcat, fox and coyote during the bobcat, fox and coyote season on Dardanelle and Ozark Lake WMAs.

Code: 20.02

Justification

In many portions of both WMAs, Corps property extends up narrow drainages with private land on either side thus making the weapons restriction nearly impossible to enforce. Recent requests by hunters who like to call bobcats, foxes and coyotes, especially on the bigger islands and field systems, and would like to use center fire rifles yet are limited in the type of weapons used, have increased. This recommendation would increase hunter opportunity to use any caliber weapon to harvest bobcat, foxes and coyotes.

29. Implement firearms restriction to shotguns only (.410 and larger) with slugs (no buckshot allowed) or muzzleloading rifles shooting a single projectile on Frierson and Holland Bottoms WMAs.

Code: 20.02

Justification

Frierson-To make the firearm restrictions on the WMA the same as the surrounding zone.

Holland Bottoms-Weapons are being restricted due to urbanization surrounding the

WMA and in order to ensure hunter safety.

30. Removing the firearm restrictions and allowing all legal modern guns during the modern gun youth permit hunt on Steve N. Wilson Raft Creek Bottoms WMA.

Code: 20.02

Justification

After three years of the permit hunt, it is believed there are no safety issues that would warrant firearm restrictions. Allowing rifles designed for kids will increase hunter participation and success for this permit hunt.

31. Allow other seasons to remain open during the permit hunts on DeGray Lake WMA.

Code: 20.17

Justification

The special youth deer permit hunt and the Mobility Impaired Waterfowl permit hunt conducted by the Corps of Engineers conflicts with Code 20.17 that states: "It is unlawful to hunt wildlife during a permit hunt on any WMA without first obtaining a permit. All seasons not named on the permit are closed during permit hunts on WMAs." As the code currently reads, deer archery and furbearer hunting would be closed during these two permit hunts. However, the Corps of Engineers only allows a small number of people to participate in these permit hunts and it is on areas that are not allowed to be hunted by the general public. It is not the intent to close any other seasons during these hunts, so adding DeGray Lake WMA as an exception would correct this.

32. Extend quail dog training from April 1 to April 15 on J. Perry Mikles Blue Mountain SUA.

Code: 22.01

Justification

To provide additional spring dog training opportunity for National Shoot to Retrieve Association and National Bird Hunter Association participants.

33. Adjust WMA deer bag limits to match up with surrounding zone bag limits and to align WMAs into four tiers. This includes Bayou Meto, Beaver Lake, Bell Slough, Beryl Anthony Lower Ouachita, Big Lake, Big Timber, Camp Robins SUA, Camp Robinson WMA, Casey Jones, Cherokee, Cove Creek Natural Area, Crossett Experimental Forest, Dardanelle, Dave Donaldson Black River, DeGray Lake, Devils Knob, Ed Gordon Point Remove, Ft. Chaffee, Foushee Cave Natural Area, Frierson, Frog Bayou, Greers Ferry, Harold E. Alexander, Hobbs State Park-Conservation Area, Howard Hensley Searcy County, J. Perry Mikles Blue Mountain SUA, Jamestown Independence County, Jim Kress, Jones Point, Lake Overcup, Loafer's Glory, McIlroy Madison County, Mike Freeze Wattensaw, Mt. Magazine, Nimrod Lloyd Millwood, Norfork Lake, Ozark Lake, Ozark National Forest, Petit Jean River, Piney Creeks, Poison

Springs, Prairie Bayou, Rainey, River Bend, St. Francis National Forest, St. Francis Sunken Lands, Seven Devils, Steve N. Wilson Raft Creek Bottoms, Sweden Creek Natural Area, Sylamore, Terre Noire, Trusten Holder, U of A Pine Tree Experimental Station, W. E. Brewer Scatter Creek, Wedington, White Rock and Winona WMAs.

Addendum: C1.01

Justification

To simply bag limit regulations on certain WMAs by organizing them into four groups of season structures/bag limits.

34. Add a third modern gun special youth hunt on Bearcat Hollow WMA.

Addendum: C1.01

Justification

The US Forest Service has requested a third youth deer season to offer more public hunting opportunity for the youth of Northwest Arkansas.

35. Add an archery deer season on the Devil's Eyebrow Unit on Beaver Lake WMA.

Addendum: C1.01

Justification

This area has just been added to the WMA system and is located near heavily populated Northwest Arkansas cities. This has potential to become a very popular destination for the deer hunting public in that area. An archery only season this first year will allow time for AGFC and partners (ANHC and TNC) to evaluate options and alternatives appropriate for this location.

36. Change the deer modern gun youth permit hunt from the first weekend of muzzleloader to the weekend before deer muzzleloader on DeGray Lake WMA.

Addendum: C1.01

Justification

The Corps of Engineers has a deer modern gun youth permit hunt that allows three youth to participate in the permit hunt and it is on areas that are not allowed to be hunted by the general public. The Corps of Engineers has selected these dates for this hunt so that it is not during muzzleloader season.

37. Add a modern gun permit hunt on Galla Creek WMA.

Codes: C1.01, C1.13

Justification

Several adjacent clubs continue to obtain numerous doe tags in an attempt to control deer numbers around Galla Creek WMA. In an attempt to continue to liberalize the deer harvest on this WMA and to allow public land hunters in this area more opportunity, Region 8 staff recommends the addition of a modern gun permit hunt (30 permits) with a bag limit of two deer (one buck and one doe).

38. Move the modern gun mobility impaired permit hunt and the modern gun permit hunt dates on Hobbs State Park-Conservation Area later in the season.

Addendum: C1.01

Justification

Moving these date changes to later in the season will reduce conflicts between user groups on the area and give more attention to selected hunters.

39. Add two youth permit hunts to Holland Bottoms WMA.

Addendum: C1.01

Justification

Youth modern gun permit (20 permits per hunt) hunts, with restricted weapons, are being recommended to provide additional youth hunting opportunities within the central Arkansas region. The Holland Bottoms has approximately 5,540 acres of quality habitat that could be utilized by youth hunters with an average annual harvest rate of approximately 30 deer. The low number of permits (1/277 acres of quality habitat) will allow for a quality/safe experience. These hunt dates will coincide with the statewide youth deer hunts.

40. Remove the permit requirement to harvest a doe with a firearm during the entire muzzleloader season and Nov. 9-10 and Dec. 26-28 on Blue Mountain WMA.

Addenda: C1.01, C1.13

Justification

Align the total deer bag limit with deer zone 11. Deer harvest numbers suggest the deer herd on this area can support the increase in the bag limit.

41. Add a modern gun youth permit (20 permits) hunt on Little Bayou WMA.

Addenda: C1.01, C1.13

Justification

To provide additional quality hunting opportunities for youths. The dates will coincide with the first statewide youth deer hunt.

42. Remove the permit requirement from the youth hunt and add the second statewide youth hunt date on Prairie Bayou WMA.

Addenda: C1.01, C1.13

Justification

Removing permit requirement for the youth hunt and adding the second youth hunt will increase regional and statewide opportunity for youth hunters. Permit sales have been low the last several years, averaging 75% permits remaining.

43. Add a modern gun mobility impaired permit hunt (6 permits) on Wedington and White Rock WMAs.

Addenda: C1.01, C1.13

Justification

To provide hunting opportunity to special needs mobility impaired deer hunters.

44. Open archery bear season on Cedar Creek and Iron Mountain Natural Area WMAs.

Addendum: C1.02

Justification

There is no biological reason not to allow archery bear hunting on these areas. The area is currently open to archery deer hunting and this change would allow for more sportsman opportunity.

45. Open modern gun bear season for two days for deer permit holders only on Galla Creek WMA.

Addendum: C1.02

Justification

Bears are rare occurrences on Galla Creek WMA and are typically young bears passing through the area. Allowing deer permit holders to also harvest a bear if they encounter one will prevent bears from becoming established on this small WMA which is located very near to urban areas where they would assuredly cause human conflicts. This recommendation is consistent with the permit hunts on all other Region 8 WMAs.

46. Increase the turkey bag limit from one to two on Buck Island WMA.

Addendum: C1.04

Justification

This regulation change would align the WMA bag limit with the surrounding zone.

47. Eliminate the Bird Dog Training/Quail Hunting Permit that is currently required to hunt on Big Timber WMA Upland Demonstration Area.

Addendum: C1.05

Justification

The AGFC leases this portion of Big Timber WMA from The Ross Foundation. The intent of the Bird Dog Training/Quail Hunting Permits was originally to gather information from quail hunters using the area and to survey them to collect data used by the Ross Foundation. The Ross Foundation did not gather enough accurate data from the hunters and the area is not very heavily utilized by quail hunters, so the Ross Foundation has requested that no permits be required on the Upland Wildlife Demonstration Area.

48. Allow raccoon hunting on J. Perry Mikles Blue Mountain WMA.

Addendum: C1.09

Justification

Allowing raccoon hunting will reduce predation on the quail stocked for field trial use, reduce predation on ground nesting bird nests and provide additional furbearer hunting opportunity.

49. Allow trapping of furbearers on Camp Robinson WMA.

Addendum: C1.09

Justification

Military personnel at Camp Robinson have requested to allow trapping of furbearers on the WMA. A few years ago, the military personnel at the time recommended that the WMA be closed to trapping due to the potential for an individual to set out traps on the WMA one day and then return the next day to find that the same area had been closed to public access and would thereby be unable to retrieve his traps. With the current personnel on the military base and the long-term scheduling of training activities, it is unlikely that the once perceived problem would actually become reality. Therefore, the military personnel recommend allowing trapping on Camp Robinson WMA in order to provide recreational opportunity and help reduce furbearer numbers.

50. A change to allow archery hunting for deer, and squirrel hunting on Harris Brake WMA seven days a week while staying consistent with statewide season and WMA boating restrictions.

Addendum: C1.12

Justification

Comments from the non-duck hunting public as well as a general consensus between area biologists, and county wildlife officers suggest that a possibly large portion of hunters are unable to utilize this WMA for many of its intended uses due to restrictions that were placed on the days, times, and types of hunting that can occur during the waterfowl season After consultation with previous area managers, and county wildlife officers no reasons could be identified for continuing with these restrictions.

51. The Conway George Unit on Sheffield Nelson Dagmar WMA is closed to all trespassing, except for waterfowl hunting permit from the last day of the modern gun permit hunt to the last day of waterfowl season (including the special youth waterfowl hunt). Anyone entering the Conway George Unit during waterfowl season must be in possession of a Sheffield Nelson Dagmar WMA Conway George Unit Waterfowl Hunting Daily Use Permit, or be accompanied (in immediate proximity) by a permit holder in accordance with permit requirements. Waterfowl hunting permits will be allocated through an online drawing. All permits must be completed and returned to the collection box at the end of the hunt.

Addendum: C1.12

Justification

The Conway George Unit is a newly acquired property that will be managed as a permitted waterfowl hunt unit on Wednesdays and Saturdays. All day youth permit hunts will be allowed each Saturday of waterfowl season in order to support, encourage and promote youth waterfowl hunting in East Central Arkansas. These small units will be closed to all trespass except for permit holders in order to allow waterfowl time to forage and loaf on these high quality sites.

52. Added a muzzleloader and modern gun deer permit hunt (20 permits per hunt) on Benson Creek Natural Area WMA.

Addenda: C1.01, C1.13

Justification

Increase public hunting opportunity by allowing muzzleloader and modern gun permit hunts on this WMA. The WMA will be permitted due to anticipated hunter participation. This WMA is in deer zone 9 and borders both Sheffield Nelson Dagmar WMA and Cache River NWR. There are no anticipated safety concerns with allowing these permit hunts. Arkansas Natural Heritage Commission supports adding these permit hunts. The staff would like to provide additional public opportunity but at the same time, is committed to providing a quality experience for the permit hunters.

53. Add the word possess to code 20.05 and also add an exception to exclude hunters traveling to inholding property on a WMA.

Code: 20.05

Justification

There is no reason for hunters to possess corn, feed or any type of bait while hunting on WMAs. In the past corn has been found by enforcement on ATV's and in trucks. The hunter has used the excuse they hunt over bait on their lease.

54. Open elk season on Bearcat Hollow WMA.

Addendum: C1.15

Justification

The elk population on this area has reached a level to sustain a limited hunt.

55. Open squirrel hunting with dogs after the first nine days of modern gun deer season on Big Timber, Casey Jones, Ozark National Forest, Piney Creeks and White Rock WMAs.

Code: 22.01

Justification

To provide maximum opportunity for both modern gun deer hunters and modern gun squirrel hunters utilizing dogs.

56. Add an alligator hunt by permit only on Sulphur River WMA.

Addendum: C1.03

Justification

Permits have been issued on Sulphur River in the past; however numbers of alligators detected during spotlight surveys declined due to flooding, and the WMA was removed from the code. The alligator population in the area most likely did not drop, but the flood waters most likely accounted for dispersal of the alligators. Including Sulphur River WMA in the code, and allowing the harvest of one alligator on the area will not negatively impact the resource. Staff recommends adding Sulphur River WMA to the code, and the alligator population will continue to be closely monitored.

Misc.

57. Modify the legal archery tackle to exclude arrowheads containing firearm ammunition.

Code: 06.04

Justification

A new product has been developed to be used for archery hunters. This product incorporates firearm ammunition inside an arrowhead to be delivered by archery tackle. When the arrow makes contact with the target, the arrow becomes a firing pin and deploys the ammunition round.

This product can become very deadly being delivered from archery tackle. Deployed arrows may glance off tree limbs and other obstacles which result in the arrow rapidly changing its course of flight. A deflected arrow with these types of heads can be very dangerous as the ammunition round is fired in a random direction. In addition, a firearm ammunition arrowhead contradicts the spirit of archery tackle definitions.

58. Modify the minimum archery poundage from 40 to 35 pounds.

Code: 06.04

Justification

The current regulation requires that hunters utilizing archery tackle comply with a draw weight at least 40 pounds. This regulation was developed many years ago and has not been modified with the advances of archery tackle.

It has been recommended by the Arkansas Bowhunters Association that the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission lower the 40 pound requirement to 35 pounds to address the enhancements in archery tackle and provide opportunity to hunters who may not be able to effectively draw 40 pounds. This recommended draw weight would also take into consideration the various types of broad heads (fixed vs. expandable) and their killing ability.

Items in blue are clarifications and are not reflected in the summary.

Subject: Adoption of 2013 Fishing Regulation Clarifications

Submitted by: Mark Oliver Chief

The Fisheries Division recommends the attached fishing regulation changes. The following pages include the recommended Code Book language to be adopted for trout permit requirements and turtle harvest restrictions. During the code book revision "waters of the state" was inadvertently deleted from the trout permit requirements. A clarification is needed for turtle harvest restrictions, which includes adding portions of Randolph County. This change should have been included in the fisheries regulation package the Commission approved last August. A Minute Order is attached for approval. All approved changes would go into effect April 18, 2013.
