Arkansas is known as The Natural State, and it's easy to see why. Take the Ozarks in the Northwest region of the state for example. An abundance of sparkly hot springs, cascading waterfalls and mineral caverns dot the landscape. There are hidden gems throughout this great state just waiting to be discovered.
The Ozark and Ouachita Mountains and national forests make up a large portion of the almost 19 million acres of Arkansas woodlands. These ranges are part of the US Interior Highlands, a unique find situated being two of the very few groups of mountains between the Rockies and the Appalachians. Backpacking, trout fishing, whitetail deer, black bear and other game draw outdoorsmen and women to these rugged hills.
These are the same hills where Johnny Cash was born. Just like Cash, there's something about Arkansas' high places that seem to speak and sing nature’s beauty, calling us to amazing places like Lake Ouachita, Whitaker Point and so many more.
The White and Arkansas Rivers flow across the center of the state watering its rich farmland, eventually joining the Mississippi Delta in the east. Imagine the thrill of hopping in a boat well before sunrise and making your way through wetlands to your favorite cove of flooded timber. Excitement builds as you slip through the water anticipating Arkansas' world-class waterfowl hunting. As the boat lands, you make your way through the hemlocks, willows and white oak to your blind. It's here you'll hear the honks of snow geese and blue geese and have the opportunity to call for ducks, coots, teals and mergansers. Eastern Arkansas low land forests are a hotspot for both local and migratory birds alike.
The southern and eastern Arkansas regions provide ample farming for the state's highest-grossing cash crops. Snowy white cotton fields, as well as soybeans and rice, cover the countryside. Arkansas grows more rice than any other state, each year growing half of America's total crop. Almost 50,000 farms tend to over 13 million acres of farmland, making the state home to those, not only seeking wilderness opportunity, but agricultural opportunity as well.
Memories are sure to be made among the timbered rocky ridges and peaks that carve out nutrition-rich valleys below. Hunting whitetails and small game in the hills create panoramic scenery that gives home a new meaning. Misty mornings and golden hour evenings on stand have a way of sticking with you, calling you back for more.
