CONWAY-( Keep up with the latest changes to fall hunting seasons with the AGFC’s Outdoor Hotline, airing 7 p.m., Oct. 6 on AETN. The live, call-in program offers hunters the chance to hear the latest changes to hunting regulations and season structures and even call-in with specific questions to a panel of experts.

Much of the program will focus on new regulations in place for Arkansas’s first hunting season since the detection of chronic wasting disease in deer and elk. Keith Stephens, AGFC chief of communications, says the addition of the call-in show hopefully will reach a different audience than those already reached through the agency’s previous radio and television updates, press releases, social media efforts and guidebooks.

“All Arkansans have a stake in the management of CWD,” Stephens said. “We want to offer as many ways as possible to hear the latest details about how the AGFC is monitoring the disease and trying to slow its spread.”

The agency’s waterfowl biologist also will provide a report on duck and goose hunting in the state, as well as trends in wetland habitat conditions across the state. AGFC panelists also will discuss feral pigs, changes in regulations concerning feral pigs on wildlife management areas and methods being used to control them.

Questions may be submitted by phone at 800-662-2386, or you can e-mail them to
