The Arkansas Game & Fish Commission (St. Francis Sunken Lands WMA) lies adjacent to the property along the entire western boundary and across portions of the northern boundary. This unique property is a whitetail and duck hunters dream. You could plant food plots in the available open tracts, which would be a magnet for ducks and whitetail. You could also harvest portions of the timber, which would not only be very lucrative, but would also allow you to plant as many food plots as you deemed  necessary.
