Delta looks good for modern gun deer hunt in Arkansas
LITTLE ROCK - Rains over the past two years have brought an end to the state’s drought and has certainly improved conditions for the modern gun deer season that gets underway on Nov. 8. Arkansas Game and Fish Commission biologists expect a strong year for those deer hunters in the Delta region of the state.
Keep firearms clean before, during and after seasons
LITTLE ROCK - It seems that after the hunting seasons, when guns may not be used again for a few months, is often the only time that hunters give much thought to gun maintenance. The question that comes to mind is, “how often should I clean my firearms?” Well, Arkansas Game and Fish Commission officials’ answer is usually the same; “it depends.”
LITTLE ROCK - The Arkansas Bass Association, Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, Arkansas Stream Team, and the cities of Little Rock and North Little Rock have a goal in mind for Nov. 1 - clean up the Little Rock/North Little Rock pool of the Arkansas River. The great thing about this clean up is that you, as a citizen, can help out.
LITTLE ROCK - The 50-acre Frank Lyon Maumelle Nursery Pond located adjacent to Lake Maumelle was released into the lake on Oct. 21. Over 10,000 pairs of pre-spawn adult threadfin shad were stocked into the pond earlier this year.
HAMBURG - It’s been a good year for wildlife officers at the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission. Earlier this year, Wildlife Officer First Class Tom Harris was recognized as the 2002-2003 Waterfowl Enforcement Officer of the Year. Just last week, the Southeastern Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies named Corporal Pat Fitts the Officer of the Year.
