LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - The Army Corps of Engineers is accepting applications for our 2019 Arkansas special deer hunts that provide hunting opportunities for mobility impaired hunters. The hunts are organized on specific days from mid-October through early December at a number of Corps lakes and properties throughout Arkansas.
The application period will close Aug. 15 and will be followed by a drawing in September to award the available hunting opportunities. Applicants may apply for up to three different hunt locations, with successful applicants limited to one awarded hunt.
To be eligible, an applicant must have a permanent physical disability that impairs mobility and requires physical assistance from ambulatory or adaptive devices such as wheelchairs, crutches, prosthesis, or other similar devices. Disabled veterans or active duty military with at least a 50% physical disability which severely limits mobility as evaluated by the Department of Veterans Affairs may also be eligible. A doctor’s verification letter must be submitted along with the application.
To request a package which includes a list of hunt locations, dates, and harvest methods or to clarify eligibility requirements please contact Gerald Judge, district forester for the Corps’ Little Rock District, at 501-324-5675, or by email at email@example.com.
