The themes of responsible hunting, sportsmanship and youth development were mixed with a live auction, silent auction and the raffling off of some nice prizes. It was all part of the Jackson County Sportsman Federation Banquet held Saturday night, Jan. 27 at the Canter's Cave 4-H Camp dining facility.

The event was hosted by ODNR District Supervisor Lee Van Allen. He stated the organization is active in the community and donates to a number of hunting clubs and youth organizations. These organizations include: Coon Club, Beagle Club, Hunter's Education Class and U.S. Sports Alliance; as well as the sponsorship of the Eric Shipman Memorial Scholarship.

Shipman was an Oak Hill business person who was active in many youth causes in Jackson County. The winners of the scholarship presented in May were Alexandria Humphreys ($1,000) and Troy Moore ($500). Neither winner was able to be present at the event. They won their scholarships by submitting an essay describing a hunting, trapping or other outdoor/wildlife experience. They also had to provide a copy of their hunting or fishing license, or hunter education card.

As always, the highlight of the event was the live auction called by Ron Queen of Jackson. Queen sold a large assortment of items. One of the more notable ones was a barrel made the Speyside Bourbon Cooperage in Jackson. The barrel was purchased by Jerry's Jamestown Market for $300. Gun winners included Ron Potter, Devin Shamblin and Carl McGlone. These winners won a variety of different guns while Mandy McCain won the muzzleloader, which was the door prize. Additionally, Josh Baker won the 22-gauge Henry gun.

Everyone also enjoyed the roast beef and grilled chicken dinner complete with baked potato, salad and desert.

Van Allen thanked everyone for attending and supporting all the good causes sponsored by the Jackson County Sportsman Federation.
