I'm proud to say that the Williamson County Tourism Bureau is one of the sponsors of my TV show, Illinois Outdoors. I've been working with them for the past several years and it's really a pleasure to work with Shannon Johnson, the bureau's Executive Director.
Williamson County has been a favorite destination for me for taping TV shows. It is Illinois' most beautiful location to visit that offers great fishing, hunting, camping and other outdoor activities. I've fished and taped TV shows at Crab Orchard, Lake of Egypt, Little Grassy, Devil's Kitchen and Cedar Lakes. I've hunted deer and turkey there as well.
Now, I'm proud to hear that Williamson County has won an Illinois Governor's Conference Award.
The Williamson County Tourism Bureau was awarded the 2013 Illinois Governor’s Conference Award for Best Leisure Collateral on February 27, 2013 at the annual Governor’s Conference on Travel & Tourism held at the Rosemont Convention Center in Rosemont Illinois.
The bureau’s annual Fishing Guide was chosen among many entries for the best in the state.
This free publication is distributed in 12 states and is promoted in various medias throughout the Midwest. To receive a free copy of the 2013 Fishing Guide, please call the Williamson County Tourism Bureau at 618-997-3690.
