County wild game cook-off set for Oct. 1

The Morgan County Chapter of the Alabama Wildlife Federation will host its 18th annual wild game cook-off at Ingalls Harbor in Decatur Oct. 1

Backyard chefs and sportsmen are invited to show off their wild game cooking skills as festivalgoers enjoy an evening of friendly competition and an opportunity to taste some culinary treats.

The event typically attracts more than 40 teams who prepare creative entrees using turkey, quail, wild pig, venison, duck, and fish. For those interested in what wild game tastes like, competing teams will provide free samples.

The competition contains three divisions – fish, fowl and game. First, second and third place awards will be given to the teams with the tastiest treats in each division in addition to awards for the best overall winner, best presentation, and people’s choice. Along with the cook-off and samplings, the event also offers music, silent auction, raffle prizes and door prizes for children and adults. This year’s raffle prizes include a shotgun, deer rifle, ladies jewelry, a utility trailer and more, and door prizes include a youth gun, Summit Tree Stand, a 12-gauge Remington three-foot 870 Express, a hard gun case and more.

All activities take place at Ingalls Harbor located at 802 Wilson St. NW. Gate opens at 5:30 p.m.

Tickets are $35 per couple/person and children under 15 years old are admitted free. The ticket price includes a one-year membership in the Alabama Wildlife Fed-eration, a subscription to the Alabama Wildlife magazine and free samples from those competing at the cook-off. All proceeds from the event will benefit AWF, the oldest and largest non-profit conservation organization in Alabama.
