LITTLE ROCK - Cutting a tree, let alone an oak, seems like a sin to many hunters. These beneficial trees produce the acorns that are seen as the lifeblood of hunting season. Many a hunter has placed their deer stand based on the availability of a hot section of forest where the acorns are dropping, and more than one hunter has called foul when they see small sections of their favorite duck woods suddenly logged and resulting brushy areas beginning to grow.

LITTLE ROCK - One of the best ways to beat the heat of summer for a camping/fishing combination is a trip to the cool tailwaters formed by Norfork, Bull Shoals and Greers Ferry Lakes. The dams forming these Corps of Engineers impoundments release cold water from the bottom of the water column. That rush of cold water can chase away the stifling heat, offering a brief respite from the summer sun.
