On Dec. 23, 1956, 4 million viewers of NBC’s Wide Wide World, hosted by Dave Garroway, watched one of the most amazing hunting shows ever broadcast on live television. An estimated 300,000 mallards were sitting on the Claypool Reservoir in northeast Arkansas’ Poinsett County when the broadcast started at 3:14 p.m. — 40 acres completely covered with birds that were cleverly maneuvered into place by Game and Fish wildlife officers in boats. After a blast of TNT the sky turned
dark with Mallards, literally blocked the sun. This footage and photos are the most famous and memorable moments in duck hunting history. This took Arkansas hunting to a new height and crowned Arkansas ducks as the king of the states.
