Arkansas’s 2013-14 waterfowl season dates have been set. hunters will enjoy a 60-day season again.

Arkansas hunters will enjoy a 60-day waterfowl season for the 17th consecutive year. The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission set the dates for late migratory waterfowl seasons at the August Commission meeting, Aug. 15,

AGFC Waterfowl Program Coordinator Luke Naylor presented the Commission with the late migratory season proposals.

“Habitat conditions were improved or similar to last year in many areas due to average or above-average annual precipitation, with the exceptions of southeastern Canada, the northeast U.S., and portions of Montana and the Dakotas,” Naylor said.

With more than 529,500 mallards harvested, Arkansas had the third highest waterfowl harvest and highest mallard harvest in the nation last season. The second highest mallard harvest in the nation was 243,467 in California. No other state’s hunters, in the Mississippi flyway, harvested over 200,000 mallards.
