LITTLE ROCK — Hunters headed to deer camp to get things ready for opening weekend of modern gun deer season may want to make a quick pit stop to fuel up at their local Hardee’s restaurant. Every Hardee’s restaurant in Arkansas will give a free sausage biscuit to anyone who shows their valid hunting license to the cashier from 5-11 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 11.
“It’s a significant way of recognizing hunters’ contributions to Arkansas conservation,” said Trey Reid, assistant chief of communications for the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission. “Having a business show its appreciation for hunters and wildlife conservation in this way points to the importance of hunting to both Arkansas’s outdoor culture and our economy. This is the third year we’ve worked with Hardee’s to promote this special day for hunters, and hopefully it will become a tradition as strong as hunting season itself.”
All 53 Hardee’s locations in Arkansas are participating in the one-day giveaway. Hunters may show their license just like they would to a wildlife officer in the field to claim their free food. Printed paper copies, a screenshot of the image on your phone or a Commission-issued reloadable license card may all be used.
