Join us for the first annual Arkansas Waterfowler Hall of Fame. The creation of this new program is a long overdue effort to preserve the contributions of those individuals who have gone above and beyond through dedicated time, resources and other work to enhance the waterfowl industry in Arkansas.

The inaugural class of this landmark program will be inducted on December 1, 2016. This special evening event will share the stories of the impact of their contributions as waterfowl enthusiasts gather to celebrate this time honored tradition.
