Law Enforcement

In addition to the protection of the refuge, federal wildlife officers protect refuge visitors and employees. They also strive to assist visitors in understanding refuge laws, regulations, and the reasons for them. These federal law enforcement officers perform many different duties as part of their daily activities. They assist with search and rescue, wildfires, refuge hunts, and general security for the refuge and special events.

To report sick or dead deer, call the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission’s hotline at 800-482-9262.

To report a violation on Felsenthal National Wildlife Refuge, please call 1-844-FWS-TIPS at all hours.
