Outdoor Hotline to feature feral hogs and lunker bass

LITTLE ROCK (AGFC) – Fishing for largemouth bass and the problems feral hogs are causing for Arkansas's wildlife management will be the topic of AETN's "Outdoor Hotline." Biologists from the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission will be on hand to provide information and answer questions during the one-hour TV show.

Called "Hawgs and Hogs," the show begins at 7 p.m. on March 1 and will feature such information as the best places to catch an Arkansas largemouth and the problems feral hogs are creating with their exploding population.

 Following the TV show, a workshop is scheduled on how to deal with feral hogs on private property. AGFC biologists and wildlife officers will discuss the dangers of wild hogs, the best places in Arkansas to find wild hogs, rules and regulations and the best methods of hunting and trapping them.

The free workshop will be held on March 17 beginning at 9 a.m. at the central office of the AGFC. The office is located at 2 Natural Resources Drive in Little Rock. For more information, call 800-364-4263.
