A day touring the Grand Prairie
Saturday, November 16, 2019
The area south of the White River and somewhat centered around Stuttgart, AR, is called the Grand Prairie and rice is the main field crop and Duck Hunting is the top cash crop. Stuttgart claims the title of Rice and Duck capital of the world. Well ducks and geese are clogging the flyways now. A friend and his wife are bird watchers as is my wife and the incited us to take an afternoon tour of the Prairie today and we stirred up a number of great herons. hawks and deer as we scouted fields and ponds of duck and geese. We eyeballed a chop shop for aged commercial air planes, visited a pecan buying, cracking and selling operation, picked some persimmons, tracked some abandoned railroad right-of-way and ate at a buffet that was crowded in a town of under 1000 people. Oh. we visited Mack's Prairie Wings in Stuttgart, too. Everything you need to wear or carry to hunt or fish. Neat store for dreaming, prices are right for quality but they would out live me and it would be more work than I can handle at this time so I JUST DREAMED AND REMEMBERED.
