AGFC Adds Nearly 6,000 New Acres Of Public Access In 2018

LITTLE ROCK – Thanks to federal money through the Pittman-Robertson Act and partnerships with other agencies and private landowners, the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission has been able to add nearly 6,000 acres to its wildlife management system in time for the 2018 hunting seasons and for other recreational use.

Some of these include wooded land perfect for hunting deer or small game, and other acreage will add to waterfowl hunting opportunities later this year, according to Matt Warriner, assistant chief in the AGFC’s wildlife management division.

The Pittman-Robertson Act, also known as the Federal Aid in Wildlife Restoration Act of 1937, has provided millions of dollars to wildlife agencies for habitat restoration and managing wildlife through excise taxes placed on the purchase of firearms, ammunition and archery equipment.    MORE
