The 26th Hunting and Fishing Days begin tomorrow at John A. Logan College.
Events on Saturday start at 8 a.m. and last until 5 p.m. On Sunday, events start at 9 a.m. and last until 4 p.m. There will be BB gun and archery ranges, wildlife shows, calling contests and a lot of other activities.
John A. Logan College President Michael Dreith says the events aren’t just for the adults.
“It is an event for all ages," Dreith says. "We brought our five-year-old granddaughter there, and besides watching the dogs, seeing the bears, it was quite like being in a zoo, actually. But she could also get (involved) in the fishing.”
Dreith says there could be 40,000 people in the area this weekend.
