    AR Only Have to Inform LEO When Hunting (Corrected Post)

    The new law in Arkansas only applies when you are hunting. AR passed a new law that allows hunters (Bow, Muzzle Loader, Gun) to carry their concealed firearm when hunting. If you are hunting and approached by any LEO of the state you must inform them you have a permit and have a concealed firearm on your person. You only have to inform them if you are carrying your concealed firearm at that time. I apologize for posting incorrect information previously.

    Argh...Now I have to update the other sites I had crossposted your initial info to from earlier toward this correction.

    Do you have a law citation source that can be reviewed directly?

    The statues havent been amended yet Jang. Here is an explanation posted from the ARCCA.

    Legislative News

    01/07/2008

    SUCCESS! After eight months of negotiations with the Arkansas Game & Fish Commission and the Arkansas State Police, ARCCA is very pleased to announce another victory for concealed handgun licensees. On December 20th, 2007, the AG&FC voted to allow the following privileges for all concealed carriers:

    1. May carry your concealed handgun during any hunting season (archery, muzzleloader, rifle, deer, turkey, dove, etc.)

    2. May carry your concealed handgun on any WMA that is not restricted by federal law

    3. The threshold for revocation or denial of a CHL has been raised from "any violation involving the use of a weapon", to the accumulation of at least 18 violation points that must have occurred due to violations involving a hunting instrument (rifle, muzzleloader, etc.). It takes a severe violation such as poaching to reach this threshold...having an extra dove over your limit will not result in your license being revoked. These changes take effect on January 20th, 2008.

    The AG&FC will require that you carry your license at all times and immediately present your CHL if stopped by a Game & Fish officer.

    Many thanks to Executive Director, Grant Exton and former commissioner of the Arkansas Game & Fish Commission and current ARCCA Board of Advisor member, Mike Freeze. Without their exhaustive efforts, this success could have never been realized.

    I've got an extreme sense of deja vu here.....didn't I reply to this thread before? Merged? From an out-of-state poster nonetheless. I have nothing further to say here in the forum lest it get me into trouble again. Maybe you're not up-to-date with your own state's laws, but yet you wish to inform others without research? Picture this...me closing my eyes in denial. Rest assured, 30% have already taken your advice from the original (un-corrected) thread

    You don't have to be a hunter for this to apply.

    Persons who are simply in the woods doing whatever be it animal watching, trail walking/running/biking, camping, or whatever can now carry concealed and not be afoul of the law during any hunting season in AR. If a game warden happens across you and initiates direct dialog with you then at that time it's by law required that you inform, even as you might not be a hunter or are a hunter who is not in that moment actively hunting.
