LITTLE ROCK, Ark.(KTHV)-- Clint Johnson is a Private Lands Biologist, and his job is to help landowners improve habitat quality on their property.
Over 85 percent of Arkansas is privately owned, over 32 million acres. This means 85 percent of all the wildlife and wildlife habitat in the state is on private land, including game and non-game species.
In general, wildlife thrive with properly managed timber and fields. Food plots will provide food through the harsh Arkansas summer and offer relief to animals raising offspring, which can increase reproductive success of game species like deer on property.
