WMAs offering hunts include Bayou Pierre, Buckhorn, Camp Beauregard, Dewey Mills, Floy McElroy, Richard K. Yancey, Sabine, Sherburne and Ouachita.

Disable veterans, youth and physically-challenged hunters and the general public can apply for opportunities to hunt deer, duck and squirrel, according to a press release.

Successful applicants will be selected by a random computer drawing, and a $5 administrative fee must be submitted with each application, the release states.
