Partnership Adds 686 Acres Of Public Opportunity

LITTLE ROCK – Arkansas hunters have 686 acres of new publicly accessible land throughout the state, thanks to a continued partnership between the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission and the Arkansas Department of Transportation.

The following land will be added to the AGFC’s wildlife management system for the 2018-19 season:

  •     161 acres added to Sulfur River WMA in Miller County
  •     282 acres added to St. Francis Sunken Lands WMA in Poinsett County
  •     158 acres added to Dardanelle WMA in Johnson County

An additional 85 acres also will be added to AGFC-managed lands in Jackson County along Village Creek, which should provide more access for paddling and fishing in northeast Arkansas.

The land, all owned by ArDOT, is part of a federal requirement to offset any wetlands that could possibly be impacted by roadway development.   MORE
