Default Gator season in Arkansas

We will have season for Gators now. Here in north part of the state I have seen any and probably won't. Anyone here see any in Arkansas?

Reading the web page for Arkansas

Alligator Hunt Details
Each permit authorizes the harvest of one alligator, which must be at least 4 feet long.
Alligator hunting is allowed from 30 minutes after sunset until 30 minutes before sunrise during the approved alligator seasons:
30 minutes after sunset, Friday, Sept. 20, through 30 minutes before sunrise, Monday, Sept. 23.
30 minutes after sunset, Friday, Sept. 27 through 30 minutes before sunrise, Monday, Sept. 30.
Successful applicants must attend a mandatory hunter orientation class
Up to three assistants are allowed in the same boat as the permit holder. Only the permit holder is allowed to snare, harpoon and dispatch an alligator.
Alligator hunters and assistants must have a valid Arkansas hunting license.
Alligators must be snared or harpooned and subdued using a hand-held snare or harpoon and hand-held restraining line before dispatching. The use of any other equipment is prohibited.
Once subdued, an alligator may be dispatched using only a shotgun or shotgun shell-loaded bangstick using shot no larger than no. 4 common shot.
Alligators must be tagged with a Temporary Alligator Possession Tag immediately and transported to an official check station within 12 hours of harvest.
