Joe Morgan AGFC Commissioner | 2015-2022
Governor Asa Hutchinson appointed Joe Morgan of Little Rock and Stuttgart to serve on the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission in 2015. This was the Hutchinson’s first appointment to the commission.
Hutchinson said he wanted someone like Morgan who understands the breadth of the outdoors culture in Arkansas. “I wanted someone who is engaged and passionate, who values, respects and treasures our incredible natural resources. Joe Morgan is an ideal fit. He understands the importance of the work of the Game and Fish Commission and what it means to the general public, to the average Arkansan,” Hutchinson said. “He's an avid hunter and fisherman with a lifelong love and appreciation of the outdoors,” he added.
Hutchinson said Morgan understands that being on the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission means being a steward of all The Natural State has to offer. “It means protecting and improving our natural resources for this generation and for generations to come. We want to sustain and build our outdoor life, which makes Arkansas so very special,” Hutchinson explained.
Morgan is a lifelong hunter and fisherman with a working knowledge of game and fish issues statewide, especially in Bayou Meto Wildlife Management Area. He has served on the Arkansas Motor Vehicle Commission for 14 years, spending three of those years as Chairman. Morgan is a retired Chevrolet auto dealer and lives in Little Rock and spends the winters hunting in Stuttgart.
Morgan’s term will expire in 2022. He replaces Ron Duncan of Springdale whose term expired in June.
