Arkansas Duck Stamp Print Program
2022-23 "Sunlit Mallards at Slicks" by Clay Connor
For many, the purchase of a duck stamp is a mere requirement to duck hunt in Arkansas. Stamps are purchased every year by waterfowl hunters, many times when renewing their annual hunting license. The stamps are a very important source of funding for the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission; millions in revenue from the stamp have been earmarked by the agency for waterfowl research and to preserve and acquire land for the safe refuges for the state’s abundant wildlife. The stamps tell stories of Arkansas’s rich waterfowl heritage - steeped with memorable scenes depicting legendary bayous and flooded timber holes to prized Labrador retrievers to magnificent sunrises over an iconic flooded rice field. It is in this realm that the artworld meets the waterfowler, and the passion that drives the Arkansas Waterfowl Stamp Program to create memories for future waterfowl enthusiasts to come. Save your stamps!
