Wildlife tasting on tap in Corinth today

By Daily Journal

CORINTH – Cooks and outdoor enthusiasts will show off specialty cooking skills during today’s Wildlife Tasting Supper in Corinth, while guests sample new flavors or enjoy old favorites.
The Alcorn County Wildlife Committee is presenting the event for the 28th year today, with supper beginning at 6 p.m. Doors open at 4:45 p.m. with registration starting at 5 p.m.
As many people as possible are encouraged to bring a wildlife dish so there will be plenty of variety and flavors for everyone to sample, said event coordinator Sandy Mitchell.
Admission is free for one person with a wildlife dish, and others pay $10 for adults and $5 for youths under age 12. Ages 5 and younger are free.
Categories of dishes include: antlered (deer, elk, moose); land critter (rabbit, bear, opossum, raccoon); water critter (beaver, fish, turtle, alligator); feathered (quail, duck, dove, goose, pheasant); desserts (muscadine cobbler, blackberry pie, etc.); hunting club (all local clubs asked to compete against each other with large quantity dishes); and chili or stew (any species).
Door prizes, raffles, agricultural agency and other exhibitors are all part of this popular event.
