Arkansas Private hunting for dove hunters made public in Greene County

By Miranda Reynolds

For sportsmen in Northeast Arkansas who enjoy dove hunting, a total of five plots ranging from 30 to 99 acres can now be hunted.
A local landowner made a deal with the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission to make one of the privately-owned plots public. However, these hunts will still require a permit.
The private plot in Greene County will serve Paragould and the surrounding area’s hunters.
“We’ve never had anything like this up here before,” AGFC private lands biologist Bo Reid says. “We’ve tried in the past and just never had any luck finding a field that really filled our needs and would also work out for the landowner.”

The landowner planted the field in sunflowers and the commission paid for the hunting rights.
AGFC used revenue money collected from license sales to pay for it. In essence, hunters paid for this private plot.

You can apply for the permit starting Aug. 1-15 by visiting their website. Permits will be drawn Aug. 16. Dove hunting season begins Sept. 5.
