DeGray Lake Spread

LITTLE ROCK — Each issue of Arkansas Wildlife magazine, a publication of the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, is loaded with articles readers won’t find anywhere else, and the May/June issue is overflowing.

Find out about a resurgence underway at DeGray Lake, a mountain lion found in Stone County and a Searcy angler who has a knack for catching different species.

There’s also an update on chronic wasting disease after eight years on the Arkansas landscape. Do you know that black bear hunters set a record with the 2023 harvest?

Those are just a few of the topics. Our reporters also run down the latest survey of mallards in the state, and the AGFC Education Division celebrates teachers and school districts for going above and beyond to teach about conservation. Meet the new chiefs of the AGFC Recreational Shooting and Education divisions.
