Hunting

The Arkansas River floodwaters offer some of the richest duck hunts in the world. The natural states reputation for water foul is known nationally and so deserves the recognition. The Arkansas and Mississippi River Basins mixed with southeastern Arkansas Delta Region makes a better than perfect habitat for the water foul population. Thousands of visitors pour into the state each year to make the sweet memories that only a good duck hunt can offer. The Corps of Engineers Pine Bluff Site Office and the surrounding communities not only encourage the development of unforgettable memories but also welcome these hunters. The joint efforts of the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission and the Corps of Engineers sponsor an annual Non-ambulatory Hunt at Jardis Point located at Dumas, Arkansas. The hunt starts as the participants show off their skills as marksman. The target practice shows the hunters knowledge of primitive weapons as well as ensuring good clean take of a white-tailed deer.
