Is Arkansas Bear hunts a draw system? Do they fill all the non resident tags? Just wonder how hard it is to get a tag and also do then have good maps for the public hunting land?

Here's the official site:

Not a draw system, just a quota in most zones. No baiting except on private land. Actually didn't fill the zone 1 quota until late this year. Last year the zone 1 archery quota was filled in just a few days.

I'm no help at all on the maps, sorry.

GPS with the state map chip is the best way to determine public land, but you can do it with WMA maps. Most private land here is posted/painted. Big chunks of acreage in National Forests. Keep in mind you cannot bait on public land.
