Arkansas Bear Hunting

The biology of Arkansas black bear should be of interest to hunters and conservationist alike. Biology tells us the true story of the black bear. Black bears are eccentric creatures mysticized by fairy tale and folklore. The habits and lives of bear in the wild regions of Arkansas are typically misunderstood or not understood at all by the general public, hunters included. Biology is unique science that gives us the facts about how animals live - what they eat, where they live, how they reproduce, their survival strategy, what habitats they prefer and how they interact with other animals and their surrounding ecosystem. All this information is relevant to conservation efforts and hunting.
