John A. Logan College would like to thank everyone that attended the 2014 Southern Illinois Hunting and Fishing Days event. We had record attendance with an estimated 46,000 people attending the two day event.

We would also like to thank all our sponsors and vendors. A special thank you to our title sponsor Absher Arnold Motors, also a special thank you to Williamson County Tourism Bureau, McDonalds, Friends of Crab Orchard Refuge Inc. and Black Diamond Harley Davidson. Black Diamond sponsored this year’s Outdoor Art and Heritage Show. We would not be able to host such a large and wonderful event without all our sponsors and vendors and volunteers that help us to make it possible.

Please mark your calendar for September 26 and 27, 2015 for next year’s 28th show. We look forward to seeing everyone again.
