So long, and thanks for all the fish

April 24, 2014 at 02:29 PM
Launched in 2007, PrairieStateOutdoors.com quickly caught fire and became Illinois' premiere outdoors website.

Whether your passion was in bagging deer, hooking fish or enjoying the passive beauty of nature, PSO was there to give you the latest news and commentary.

Several people need to be thanked for their efforts over the years. Jerry Smith designed the template that still graces this website today. Peoria outdoors editor Jeff Lampe helped launch us as a joint effort between the Journal Star and State Journal-Register. When Jeff caught the entrepreneurial bug and set out on his own in 2010, Springfield outdoors editor Chris Young stepped into the role and keep us going. He left PSO in February 2014 to become spokesman for the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.

But we especially thank you, our passionate readers. You shared your stories, photos and even videos and helped us to ignite a fervor for the outdoors.

It's time for us to say goodbye. Six years of content will remain in place, but PrairieStateOutdoors.com will be dormant. We've had a lot of fun, but it's time to get outside.
