You would probably see much more of the smaller "Sora rail" mostly in your Arkansas Rice Fields, and perhaps even some larger King Rails, and alot would depend on how much water is in your rice fields, during harvesting your rice.
There is also some rail bird shooting in SE Missouri as well in their rice fields and low fresh water marshes. Try grilling those rail breasts and you got some good eating! My new hunting book: "The Rail Bird Hunter's Bible" came out in May 2012, and is the first hunting book written in the USA about Rail Bird Hunting.
Mr. Nash, he had me take out a Mr. Money from England, who was "De' Shooingest Gent'man" I'd ever did meet! ***Check out [Joe Guide YOU TUBE hunting Videos]***
