Learn to burn with the AGFC at prescribed fire workshops LITTLE ROCK – Landowners can learn proper and safe use.. fb.me/4YLWdu2Gi

Learn to burn with the AGFC at prescribed fire workshops LITTLE ROCK – Landowners can learn proper and safe use of prescribed fire for improving wildlife habitat through a series of free workshops sponsored by the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission’s Private Lands Section. Four workshops are planned, beginning with two on March 11 at Hatfield (Polk County) and Batesville. A third workshop is set for March 18 in Fort Smith and the final workshop is April 8 in Clinton. According to Ted Zawislak, AGFC statewide private lands supervisor, fire is the most cost-effective method for restoring and maintaining upland habitats. Properly managed habitat using proper burning methods can increase available high-quality food and cover for game animals at a level twice that of planting food plots and a much-reduced cost. Throughout human history, fire was used to shape the landscape. Upland forests and fields in Arkansas have a long history with fire. American Indians used fire to maintain prairies and reduce overgrowth. A decades-long advertising push for the prevention of catastrophic wildfires created a misunderstanding among much of the general population about fire’s positive uses. However, fire is still a driving force for improving wildlife habitat by encouraging germination of beneficial plants, controlling undesirable plants and opening forests to allow growth of grasses in the understory. Deer, turkey, quail and many nongame species benefit from and thrive on habitats maintained by fire. Frequent, small-scale, controlled fires also reduce the risk of those catastrophic wildfires by reducing the amount of fuel available to burn. “We strongly believe in the benefits properly used fire can have on our wildlife and want to train landowners in its use,” Zawislak said. “These workshops are available to all who are interested in learning about using prescribed fire on private property. The workshop is intended to educate participants about the benefits and mechanics of prescribed burning, allow them to communicate with and hire professionals to burn their property, and begin the training process for landowners to conduct burning themselves.” The workshops will cover planning, fire strategy and equipment, fire weather, property safety considerations, Arkansas fire laws and more to provide landowners with the necessary tools needed to use fire on small areas of their property. For more information, contact Clint Johnson at clint.johnson@agfc.ar.gov or call (877) 470-3650. The workshops are made possible through partnerships with the Arkansas Forestry Association, The Nature Conservancy and the Arkansas Forestry Commission.

Public meeting scheduled to update public on CWD in Arkansas t.e2ma.net/message/7e85k/…

Public meeting scheduled to update public on CWD in Arkansas JASPER – The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission will be hosting a special public meeting concerning chronic wasting disease at the Carroll Electric Cooperative Building in Jasper, at 6 p.m., March 14. It’s been one year since the first case of CWD was discovered in Arkansas, and many steps have been taken to learn more about the disease and its prevalence in The Natural State. When we went to the people of Jasper back in March last year, we promised them we would keep them informed as we worked to identify the disease’s spread and impact in the state,” said Cory Gray, manager of the AGFC’s newly formed Research, Evaluation and Compliance Division. “This meeting will let us update everyone about what we’ve learned and what steps we are looking at to continue battling the spread of this disease.” Since the initial finding, the disease has been found in 206 white-tailed deer and six additional elk. The most recent positive cases have been the result of samples collected from taxidermists on deer that were presented for mounting. According to Gray, 28 positive cases have come from 898 samples submitted. “Those samples don’t really contribute scientifically in determining prevalence in the state, as mounted animals are biased toward your older bucks, which are the highest risk for having CWD,” Gray said. “But those samples were taken to identify any new areas where the disease may have spread. All positive cases came from counties already in the CWD Management Zone.” Another positive case came from 29 samples collected through veterinarians, and three cases came from samples taken from the Missouri Department of Conservation on deer harvested in Arkansas. “Missouri currently does not have a carcass importation ban, so they collected voluntary samples of deer that crossed the state line from Arkansas during the season,” Gray said. Gray says that biologists do not intend to take any random samples from the Jasper area outside of hunting season, but they do intend to conduct some selective sampling near Arkansas Nuclear One, where hunting is prohibited, in the immediate vicinity of the southernmost positive case, sampled in Pope County. “We also plan to continue taking samples from sick deer and elk reported by the public as well as road-killed deer,” Gray said. “We will resume collecting road-killed deer reported by the public from Feb. 20-April 1, and again from Sept. 18-Nov. 1. These windows were determined last year to be the best times when deer movement was high and temperatures allowed collection of viable samples.” If you see a deer or elk you suspect of having CWD, please call 1-800-482-9262.
