Alligator hunting

Random drawings were held a few days ago by the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission for 33 alligator hunting permits.

Five of the 33 permits went to Faulkner County folks. Is our county suddenly a hotbed of alligator chasers, an Arkansas version of Swamp People?

More then 3,000 people applied for the permits, and the hunt will be on a September weekend.

Faulkner winners were Kerri McCabe of Greenbrier, Keith Bell of Conway, Daniel Del Campo Jr., of Vilonia, Linda Newman of Damascus and William Pruss of Conway.
