More than 100 hunting and outdoor enthusiasts attend the 2011 Whitetail Classic held at the First Baptist Church in Chester, Ill., on October 13, 2011. Besides great chili, door prizes, faith-based devotions, and the best brownies this side of the Mississippi, sportsmen were treated to lectures by Illinois DNR Conservation Police Officer Ralph Sievers, Middle Mississippi River National Wildlife Refuge Manager Robert Cail, a professional taxidermist and a traditional tool maker.

Refuge Manager Cail quipped, “I’m pretty confident that I’m not going to hear 'big windy' recollections about the big buck that got away, or the ever enlarging fish catch since this event is hosted inside a Church." This was received with a resounding chuckle from the crowd. As a bonus, Cail passed out National Wildlife Refuge System coloring books, pencils, rulers, Middle Mississippi River National Wildlife Refuge brochures, birding wrist bands and birding posters.
