set for March 13 at Corinth arena
Doors will open at 5:15 p.m. with the supper starting at 6 p.m.
The price of admission is a wildlife dish or, for those who are not wild about cooking wildlife, a small donation, said Sandy Mitchell, dish contest chairman.
Got a hankering for the old standby, venison, or maybe the more exotic flavors of baked elk or roasted moose? Those tasty dishes might be included in the antlered category.
Another category will provide dishes made from rabbit, bear, beaver, opossum, raccoon and other land critters.
The water critter division will include fish, turtle, alligator and other aquatic sport food.
Contestants may also enter dishes prepared with quail, duck, dove, goose, pheasant or other feathered critters.
Hunting or fishing clubs are encouraged to enter the special category for groups and prepare a large quantity of soup, stew or chili.
A panel of judges will do a blind taste test, not knowing what they are eating or who cooked the dish. The top three entries will be rewarded
Monetary awards and prizes will be given in each category. Door prizes will also be given out during the evening.
Past winners have included such tasty entrees as deer meat loaf, raccoon dressing, smoked goose, crawfish stir fry and muscadine cobbler.
“We encourage all outdoor enthusiasts to participate in this event,” Mitchell said. “This event is fun for the whole family.”
Mitchell said organizers are seeking local businesses and individuals to help sponsor the annual event with monetary donations or door prizes.
Past events have drawn over 200.
