PARON — With archery deer season opening Sept. 28, many hunters are hitting the woods looking for likely places to set up for the season. On private land, many are dragging a disc and spreading their favorite seed mix to grow food that will draw wildlife to their stand. Thanks to the work of Arkansas Game and Fish Commission wildlife biologists throughout the state, tractors are turning dirt to plant thousands of food plots on public hunting areas as well.

Hunters, campers and other outdoors enthusiasts should pay particular attention to the dry conditions as they enjoy the outdoors, as it only takes a spark to start what could become an uncontrolled wildfire. The U.S. Forest Service currently is working to contain two wildfires, one on Winona WMA in the Ouachita National Forest, and the other on Piney Creeks WMA in the Ozark National Forest.
