There is a lot of public land in Arkansas but unfortunately all of it has deer and Arkansas deer hunters don't like to share so be careful if you decide to go that route.The good thing about Arkansas is that people who own land are much more likely to allow a bird dog man to hunt on their property than Texas land owners are.
GREAT NEWS! Kind of makes me want to get an Arkansas hunting license and start early. The old lady has family in Lockesburg that we need to visit anyway. Does anyone know how to find a listing of Arkansas public spots that allow woodcock hunting (with dogs obviously).
