From deer to ducks, Arkansas is every outdoorsman’s paradise. According to Arkansas law, all hunters are required to carry a hunting license with them while they are hunting and must tag all harvested deer within 24 hours.

“I want every Arkansas hunter to enjoy themselves,”Attorney General Leslie Rutledge said. “But I also want them to hunt safely, responsibly, and legally. I am deeply grateful for the many wildlife officers who are committed to preserving the resources of The Natural State for future generations.”

Rutledge urges hunters to follow all rules and regulations and to utilize the guidebooks and other resources provided by Arkansas Game and Fish Commission.

Arkansas hunters and anglers 16 years or older are required to purchase a hunting or fishing license. A license can be purchased online through the Arkansas Game and Fish app,, over the phone at 501-223-6300, at participating sporting goods stores, nature centers or at Arkansas Game and Fish Commission Offices.
