    Good to know that the national forests are OK to hunt in. Suspected that to be the case. State parks and WMAs are out.

    In most places mushrooms are considered one of the few things one can collect from State Parks, and WMA's. I know not only have I hunted morels in WMA's in AR, but have always encountered others doing the same.

    Several have posted otherwise about state owned lands (not national park land). Not saying you can't, just saying it is against the rules.

    Here is a question I sent to AGFC "Is it OK to hunt for morel mushrooms on all public lands in Arkansas including WMAs? "

    Response:
    Hi ****, no. It is not legal to remove plants, rocks or any artifact from public land.
