At 35 years of age, Booth is the youngest director chosen to lead the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission. This former United States Marine Corps captain most recently served as chief of staff and chief financial officer for the Arkansas Department of Veterans Affairs. Born in Little Rock and raised in Scott, Booth received his Juris Doctor from the University of South Carolina and served his country in many capacities from 2011-2019, including a 2015-16 deployment to Afghanistan. His passion for promoting “common man and common woman conservation” promises to increase the AGFC’s efforts to recruit, retain, and reactivate the next generation of Arkansas’s outdoors enthusiasts. His dedication to supporting science-based conservation will ensure the health of The Natural State’s resources.
