LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission is considering proposals for the 2012-2013 hunting seasons.
The commission heard proposals Thursday and will make a final decision in April.
Under a proposal, archery season for deer would run from Sept. 15 to Feb. 28. Modern gun season for deer would open Nov. 10, with various end dates depending on the location.
Muzzleloader deer season would open Oct. 20 and close in December.
The commission is also considering changing a rule with its youth deer hunt. A proposal says hunters who are 65 or older could still accompany youths during the hunt, but they'd no longer be able to carry a weapon and hunt.
