Posted: February 20, 2018 at 1 a.m.

Shastid (from left) Dakota Falcon and Eli Holden head back to a blind on a private pond near the Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport. The blind is set up for kids with a box of snacks by the door.

Duck hunting in February is all about the kids.

Going public

Public duck hunting is available at several wildlife management areas around the state. Duck hunting is allowed on the public shoreline of Beaver Lake, except in the developed parks.

Arkansas’ duck season usually opens close to Thanksgiving and ends in late January.
