Jeff Lampe has been outdoor writer at the Journal Star in Peoria for 12 duck seasons. He lives in Elmwood with his wife Monica, sons Henry, Victor and Walter, and Llewellin setter Hawkeye. A native of Buffalo, N.Y., he is an avid fan of the Bills and still has mental scars from four consecutive Super Bowl losses. Outside of hunting and fishing, Lampe's main passion in Illinois was Class A boys basketball (which sadly no longer exists). Former publisher of the Class A Weekly newsletter, Lampe is a co-author of "100 Years of Madness" and "Classical Madness," both books focusing on prep basketball in Illinois.

We want your videos

April 22, 2008 at 05:19 PM

I spend a part of most days watching videos I’ve been sent via e-mail. Many of those videos get forwarded home so the kids can share in the laughs or appreciate the lengths to which outdoors enthusiasts go to pursue their passions.

Now I’m hoping our video watching will get even busier. Because we at Prairie State want to showcase your outdoor videos.

If you’ve got some video of an outdoor activity in Illinois, we’re interested.

Footage of your son shooting a turkey or of you catching a 20-pound snapping turtle? Send it our way.

The easiest way to share is to upload your video to and then e-mail us a link.

If you just want to send the clip itself, that’s great too. E-mail your footage to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) and we’ll do the rest.

Best of all, we have plans to award prizes to the best video submitted each month. Prize packages will vary depending on participation. In other words, the more people submitting videos, the better the prizes. So take a minute to forward your finest footage.

And thanks.
