Illinois hunting and fishing

PSO welcomes Eric Giles

April 20, 2010 at 12:44 PM

Eric Giles enjoys bowfishing, bowhunting and being outdoors.

Any wonder we are happy to welcome him aboard Prairie State Outdoors.com as our newest Blogger?

“Last year I had my bow in my hand 300 days/nights out of the year either bowfishing or hunting,” Giles wrote in a recent e-mail. “After each trip I always had something to talk about.”

That’s powerful incentive to revisit Eric’s new blog, called Southern Exposurehttp://www.prairiestateoutdoors.com/index.php?/s_exposure.

Giles, whose nickname is “Red,” grew up chasing whitetails and pheasants and fishing (with both rod and reel and bow & arrow) all over western and central Iowa. He moved to Southern Illinois about eight years ago and lives near Marion with his fiancee and a rat terrier named Mollie. Giles works in the coal-mining industry.

In 2008-09 he founded the Bowfishing Association of Southern Illinois, a non-profit organization working to promote and preserve the sport. “I work with IDNR, the Corps of Engineers and biologists to open new waters to Illinois bowfishers and help keep the rights of every sportsman intact,” Giles said.

When he isn’t on the water, he spends plenty of time in a tree-stand chasing whitetails in Illinois and in Iowa.

So welcome Eric aboard and check back often to see what he posts about his time in the woods and on the water.
