News: Corps to issue special permits to five young deer hunters

Story by Laurie DriverSmall RSS IconSubscriptions Icon

ASHDOWN, Ark. -- The Army Corps of Engineers is taking applications from hunters ages 15 and younger who want to participate in a special deer hunt, Nov. 3-4, at Millwood Lake here. Five permits will be issued to young hunters who seek to experience the outdoors and hunt in a location that is normally closed to hunting.

Applicants must submit a completed application form to the Corps by Sept. 10. A random drawing will be held, Sept. 11, to select the five hunters. Applicants must have parental permission and be accompanied on the days of the hunt by an adult assistant at least 21 year old.

Three permits will be available for rifle only and two permits will be available for muzzleloader or shotgun.

This hunt will provide a great opportunity for youth hunters to hunt near food plots without pressure from other hunters in the woods. Hunting blinds will be provided.

Surveys have been conducted to ensure resources are properly conserved and public safety is considered. Hunters must provide their own firearms. Also, youths must be old enough and skilled enough to safely operate the firearms they bring to the hunt.

Application forms may be obtained at the Corps' Millwood Tri-Lakes Project Office at 1528 Highway 32 E, Ashdown, AR 71822 or by calling (501) 340-1460.
