Private land elk hunt completed after single day
COMPTON - The private land portion of the September Arkansas elk hunt was completed after only one day of hunting. Arkansasís sixth year of elk hunting began on Monday, Sept. 22.
Five hunters each killed cow elk on the first day of the private lane portion of the hunt. The quota of five elk was reached and that part of the hunt is now closed. Bagging the five cow elk on the first day were five Harrison residents: Larry Hurtt, Harold Johnson, Sandra Johnson, Kevin Singleterry and Jim Milum.
The public land portion of the elk hunt is still underway, with only one of the four hunters bagging an elk at this point. The public land hunt is five days long and will conclude on Sept. 26. It is limited to four hunters with bull permits, one in each elk zone. Bert Haralson of Augusta is the first hunter to get one of the magnificent animals. Haralson got a 6x7 bull Sept. 24 on the Gene Rush Wildlife Management Area.
This year's elk hunting is again on public lands of the Buffalo National River and the AGFC's Gene Rush WMA, as well as adjacent private lands within Elk Zones 1 through 4. The next elk hunt segment will be held Dec. 8-12.
