Wild game cookoff is set
Event planned for October in Decatur
Backyard Chefs from the Morgan /Limestone county area will square off on Oct. 2 at 5:30 p.m. as the Alabama Wildlife Federation hosts its annual Chevrolet-AWF Wild Game Cook-Off at the Riverwalk Marina in Decatur.
Cook teams are needed. Entry for the cook teams is free, but teams must pre-register prior to the day of the event. Categories include wild game, fish and fowl.
Prizes will be awarded to first through third place in each division, as well as best overall and best presentation. The overall winner will be invited to the state finals held at Lanark in Millbrook in August to compete for the title of Chevrolet-AWF Wild Game Cook-Off State Champion.
If you prefer to eat rather than compete, come sample some of the area's best wild game dishes. Ample servings of great food are always featured, including entrees such as venison, duck, dove, pheasant and much more.
In addition to all the outstanding food, a major highlight of the cook-off will be the opportunity to win door prizes, the silent auction and live entertainment.
Tickets are $35 per couple/person and free for cook teams and children under 15 years of age. The ticket price includes one membership to the Alabama Wildlife Federation, a subscription to the Alabama Wildlife magazine, and all of the food you can eat. Tickets are also available at the door.
To purchase your Wild Game Cook-Off ticket or to register your cook team, contact the Alabama Wildlife Federation at 1-800-822-9453.
