Arkansas License

14 posts in this topic

Anybody know how much a license costs in Arkansas? my brother looked on their game and fish site and it said it was only $20, is that right? We thought it would be more than that. Me and my brother are thinking about going down there for a few days over Christmas break.

Good luck, I've heard people down their say the ducks have remained absent the last few years. They think us northern guys are shooting all the ducks. If I were you, I would go for some sea ducks or another country might still have some ducks left.

Maybe youre not talking to the right people?

well the 5 day non res for Arkansas is $55.00 and the Non-res state duck stamp is $20. Then if you hunt a WMA youll need a $10.00 permit.

Im going there in early Jan.

Thanks Sled.

Yeah I'd love to do a sea duck hunt but that isn't in the budget being we are both in college. Reason we are thinking about going to Arkansas is we have a cousin that hunts down there, so we have someone to scout, plus we have a place to stay for free. I think at $85 for lisences we can swing it for a little over $200 each for the whole trip.

Are there many floor fields to hunt? What is the possibility of finding private land to hunt?

    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
