Opening weekend of the Arkansas youth elk hunt was a good one for three hunters in the northwest part of the state who all harvested a bull.
“The youth did really well – all the kids were excited,” said Wes Wright, Arkansas Game and Fish Commission elk program coordinator. “The weather turned bad with lots of rain Sunday but they were able to harvest before the rain hit. The rain did make it a little difficult to pack (elk) out. It was a really good experience for them to get out and learn how to hunt and enjoy nature.”
