Occupation: Public Affairs Coordinator for the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission. I’ve been with the commission for 33 years, and in this capacity since 1996.
Best known for: My love of introducing people to the outdoors. I love telling stories about nature and how the natural world works. I try to live up to my “Wildman” name—which actually came about when I worked on the Project WILD Program and there were several other Steve Wilsons at the commission, so it was a way to identify me.
Lives in: A 2,400-square-foot, triple-wide manufactured home on nine acres of land west of Little Rock. It has a Jacuzzi bath, a back porch, and plenty of space for my wife and me and our black lab dog. What else does a guy need?
My favorite part of my house is: The yard. We have eight bird feeders, deer stands and archery targets. I love mowing the grass, and I have a camo-patterned lawn mower; when I saw it, I knew I had to have it.
I’m most at home: In front of a group of people. Give me a group that knows nothing about the outdoors, and I can amaze them with true stories.
