CA7 (annual hunt) Arkansas October 7-14th 2017

Postby nj-rattler » Thu Mar 23, 2017 12:35 pm

Heading back 118,000 acres Sylamore WMA. This hint is limited number of bowhunters and a few very interested/for sures goings. Most will be arriving Saturday October 7th and leaving the following Saturday October 14th. More to follow

Camping free (hunt outside your tent), hole digging strolls, solar power and freezer are a most likely along with an engineered weekly hot shower or two?
Weekly dinners cost per person $100.00; kids mature 11-fourteen $75.00
Adult bowhunter License - $180 for 5 day (M-F hunters) $55 for 1 day, youth archery licenses were free last few years
Women and youth welcomed.
3 deer (only 1 buck), furbearers including bob cat and coyote have been included on the license in the past. Bear included w $350 annual license. Might see pigs, but can't shoot them During bow season on WMAs.
No additional costs other than travel to and from, breakfast and lunches (you bring)

Cooking contest with award - new this year is that everyone will be in the contest. May have groups of two or more. Think of easy or conplex campfire meals. Sides and especially desserts are winners. Desserts can be simple and store bought even. Save reciepts as dinner costs will be reimbursed.

Recurve contest is back too.

Arkansas is considered by many to be a sleeper state. A huge majority of bucks taken are 3.5 years or older. Very good chance you won't see another hunter all week. Big bucks are there.

May have to go to calling this "CA7: Early Bucks & Bears, Arkansas 2017"

Bear quota may not be met and closed and looking for a bear this year in a few ways. Bears in past including last year seen. Good are for bear. Good are for big bucks. Bobcats also.

Thinking NJ Bear bow season might be second or third week in October and they just opened bow season for the first time last year in 50 - a one week bow hunt. CA7 might be a true 1st week of October and starting Sept 30th. Maybe the Bear quota won't be met in AR again and again and again, and if we can't shoot pigs this year, one of us stick a boar of another kind, a big black hairy one. Have to buy the full license of $350 (get 6+ days to hunt) but also get a bear tag, fur bearers including bob cat and lots of deer - doe and buck tag. Last year, last day big boy 35 yards. Bears are there and seen heard and shot by a few. Early season maybe dumber and thirsty?

Big bucks, bears and all sorts of critters and all by our lonesomes on 118,000 acres. Will have to get consensus with those going so far, but liking 1st week of October more. I'll leave dates alone for now and wait for the NJF&G release. Just an FYI. Bear is my nemesis, others schedules will be considered too.
