Even with a 2010-11 waterfowl hunting season that began with dry weather and temperatures firmly stuck in the 70s, the number of mallards killed in Arkansas continued to rise.

If the season was handicapped by the weather, it was helped by improvements in habitat, conservation programs and landowners making the land more palatable to the migrant duck and higher participation levels.

Find out more about the numbers and if the 2011-12 season can see more of the same in the latest issue of Greenhead, The Arkansas Duck Hunting Magazine.

For 2011, you can find and read Greenhead in a number of ways. First, the issue is included in this week's print edition of Arkansas Business.

You can also find a copy at any of these locations throughout Arkansas and the Memphis area.

The magazine is available online in two formats. Check out the digital edition, where you can flip through the pages as they appear in the paper version and can even download it for later to read on your tablet device. Or go to to view the articles directly from the site.

The print issue is also available for purchase here.
