Over rated, what is your job? The base is ok. The hunting is tough with all the land posted. Hope you like racing to your spot at the boat doc.

Because i've hunted everywhere from Ga to Ak(alaska) and just from an overall stance to me its over rated, don't get me wrong there are some awesome places in Ark but with the land being bought up left and right you have to drive hours away from the base to find a decent spot. Best thing is spend some time on the Arky forum and buddy up with them...don't ask where to go just rub shoulder with them cats and you'll find somewhere to go.

Fellow member stationed at Little Rock. Like the previous poster mentioned you have got to put in some gas, and time. Plenty of places to go and hunt hunt, but scout early and always have another option. I'd say your looking at driving about 1 1/2 hours away from base to get to some really good hunting. Although there are a few closer options. A boat isn't a must but its gonna up your opportunities. Getting to know some locals is going to benefit you much more than anything, but I do know there are a good bit of members from the base that hunt.

If ya want you can pm me and we could get together for a hunt.

I will have a Jon boat when I get there so I will have access to boat only areas. I'm not use to a long drive for bird hunting so that will be a change. Ill take your advice though. And PC76 I will definitely get with you when it gets closer to my report no later than!

I will be off base, so when I start looking for a place I will keep Cabot in mind. When you say hour and a half drive is that too hunt flooded timber?

Depends on the water but yes it's safe to say that within 1 1/2 you will be able to hunt some flooded timber.

good to know. thanks! out of curriousity, will there be many hunting opportunities around the little rock area where you would need a flat bottom boat? ive heard some say yes but only for the convenience of not having to haul gear. i like huntin out of boat blinds but if there is no opportunity too id rather not haul my boat all the way there

Yeah a little of everything. I wouldn't hunt without a boat at this point. For one your not gonna get the hole you want everytime. So a boat will make ya much more versatile. Around little rock id say a boat is a must. Ya get in some of the places further out more walk in possibilities exist but at the sake of waking up at 1 am the. Having to haul your stuff in and out it'll get old real quick.
