Outdoor Hall of Famers named

October 24, 2008 at 08:34 PM

Bill Guerrini, the late Don Hankla, Dwight Hoffard and George Rabb have been selected as the four 2009 inductees to the Illinois Outdoor Hall of Fame according to Dale Bowman of the Chicago Sun-Times.

The other nine finalists for the Illinois Conservation Foundation’s hall were Warren Gale, Alfred Hayden, David Kenney, Allie Lymenstull, Rep. Dan Reitz, L. H. Bert Princen, Denny Sands, Bill and Arlene Sowle, and Walt Watts.

Inductees will be honored Feb. 28 at the annual Hall of Fame banquet which this year will be held at Pheasant Run in St. Charles.

Writes Bowman:

Guerrini is the heart and soul of the Spring Valley Walleye Club and the Masters Walleye Circuit’s annual appearance on the Illinois River.

Hankla was a full-time volunteer for the Cache Watershed for 20 years after his retirement in 1987.

Hoffard was the reason the Southern Illinois Celebration of National Hunting and Fishing Days is one of the nation’s best, and maybe the state’s greatest or most versatile all-round outdoor safety instructor.

Rabb during nearly half at century at the Brookfield Zoo fostered international conservation research and education.
