The Duck Doctors

It's a hot July morning, and duck hunting isn't on the minds of most Arkansans. It's very much on my mind, though.

I'm near the banks of Bayou Meto in southeast Arkansas, eating lunch at Five Oaks, one of the nation's most famous hunting lodges. At the head of the table is George Dunklin. As a former president of Ducks Unlimited, the world's foremost waterfowl organization, Dunklin made nationwide contacts. No one is better connected when it comes to wetland conservation.

Pine trees have been mysteriously dying across Arkansas and experts aren’t sure why. Specifically, the victim of this aliment is the Arkansas state tree— the loblolly pine.
