Illinois hunting and fishing

The Elmwood All Outdoor show

January 20, 2010 at 11:57 AM

Jeff asked me to speak at the Elmwood All Outdoor show this March to help the local high school out. From what I understand, all proceeds will benefit the school. I think this is a great way to help out a local school and at the same time, keep the interest of the outdoors alive! If you’re into fishing or hunting, this should satisfy your hunger, at least until the next opportunity should present itself. I personally am looking forward in learning more about fishing! I stink at fishing! It should be fun.

I’ve always felt the Peoria area was a bit abandoned when the Deer Classic left and have always wished for something else to return. I even suggested to the DNR that they create a new show in Peoria, just to generate some revenue for the DNR but of course, that fell on deaf ears. They would rather increase the number of non resident permits instead and push the local folks away. Don’t get me started!  Maybe this Elmwood show will take off like Tim Walmsley’s Deer Classic did and continue to fill a void in Peoria each year. 

This would be a great time to have a question and answer session for those of you who want to share experiences, ask about something or just to listen to what is being said. I hope they have a good turnout! It’s for a great cause.
