Most duck hunters recognize Arkansas’ Grand Prairie as sacred ground. Situated conveniently under the Mississippi flyway, the Grand Prairie hub of Stuttgart has come to be recognized as the true duck hunting capital of the world.
A new book chronicles the history of duck hunting around Stuttgart and how it grew to become the sport, the tradition and the industry it is today. It’s called The Grand Prairie: A History of Duck Hunting’s Hallowed Ground.
From the overview:
From the first rice crop grown in 1904 to the famed green timber, the book contains over 350 pages detailing the people, places and events that earned the region the title of "The Duck Hunting Capital of the World". Spectacular photography accompanies engaging content written to educate readers on how the Grand Prairie came to be and has sustained the reputation for world class mallard duck hunting.
The first edition book, published by a life-long Arkansas waterfowler, chronicles the evolution of the region's duck hunting and its rich history. A must read for anyone that enjoys the sport of duck hunting and the traditions of years past.
