The Arkansas Game and Fish Foundation recently announced the 2015 Arkansas Outdoor Hall of Fame inductees and the Legacy Award winner. Arkansas Outdoor Hall of Fame Inductees include Steve Bowman, the late Joel Campora, Wildlife Officer First Class, George Dunklin Jr. and Nashville native Jerry Fisk. The Legacy Award winner is Jim Gaston.
Steve Bowman is an accomplished outdoor writer and editor. The late Joel Campora, Wildlife Officer First Class, died in the line of duty while trying to save two Y City women from severe floodwaters in 2013. George Dunklin, Jr. is a past AGFC Commissioner and the current chairman of Ducks Unlimited. Jerry Fisk is a master bladesmith and internationally recognized artist. Legacy Award winner Jim Gaston played a key role in establishing trout fishing in Arkansas.
“These inductees were carefully chosen for their sacrifice, contributions and talents and we are proud to add these names to the list of the other 83 past inductees,” said Chuck Dicus, president of the Arkansas Game and Fish Foundation. “Legacy Award winner Jim Gaston has spent a lifetime working to establish a trout habitat in Arkansas and been a tireless supporter of the minimum water flow management regime,” Dicus said.
The annual Arkansas Outdoor Hall of Fame Banquet will be held Fri., Aug. 21 at the Statehouse Convention Center. Tickets for the event are $100 and tables of 10 are available for $1,000 each. The reception and silent auction will begin at 6 p.m., and dinner will begin at 7 p.m.
