No other state in the country is as steeped in rich duck hunting traditions and legacies as Arkansas. Brent Birch, whose day job is as Chief Information Officer of Arkansas Business Publishing Group, points out in this issue that hunters in no other state harvest as many mallards each year as much as Arkansans do. Family heritages are built around duck hunting in the Natural State, and we take a look at how it has been passed down through the generations. You can also learn how the new generations are being encouraged to become active in waterfowl hunting.

Also in this issue, ArkansasSports360.com columnist Jim Harris attempts to master duck calling. He also looks at the effects of the weather on successful hunting and on the ducks themselves. Executives from around the state share their favorite hunting clubs and what’s mandatory for them in the blind. Learn more about shooting – whether it’s from our Guns & Gear special promotional section or it’s shooting video and still photography from Arkansas’ fields, rivers, reservoirs and woods.

Learn a new duck receipe from Angela Chapman of Dry Lake Hunting Service. Go back in time to when Wingmead near De Vall’s Bluff attracted the well-to-do from all over. Browse the hunting clubs in Greenhead’s “Outstanding in Their Field” special promotion. And browse through the superb photo essay by Thomas Kjos about a hunter’s best friend, “Just My Dog”.
