Current deer season could approach the record November 13, 2011 Arkansas, Log Cabin Democrat

The peak season in Arkansas deer hunting was 1999-2000 when 194,687 were checked by hunters. The numbers declined through 2003-04 due to both weather conditions and regulations restrictions of several types. Then numbers climbed again to close to the record of a dozen seasons ago.... another factor in the possible high count for deer checked in the current year is liberalizing of the seasonal deer limit....A hunter can take six deer this year but only two bucks statewide ... a hunter conceivably could take deer in a management area, cross a border road and take more deer.
