NORWAY - The Grace United Methodist Church of Norway is hosting a wild game feed on Friday, Jan. 22.
For those area residents that spent the fall in woods chasing deer and other game, it already seems like a long time since the hunting season ended. And looking forward to the next season seems to be so far away.
"The best way to get over the winter doldrums is to get together with good friends and talk about the seasons past and seasons to come," said an event spokesperson. "Sitting around and talking hunting and sharing a meal of wild game is hard to beat."
Grace United Methodist Church of Norway is offering a chance to get together and share in the best of all of these things, he added.
There will be talk of hunting, wild game to eat, lots of trophies to look at and prizes to win.
Persons can also get a chance to view the new facility of the church.
At 5 p.m. the doors will open. From 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. you can spend your time walking around looking at mounts, talking with friends and enjoying some wild game hors d' oeuvres, including cheese and wild game sausage as well as wild Alaskan salmon and salmon caviar.
Dinner will be served at 6:30 p.m. which will include venison, pheasant, wild turkey and water buffalo.
Following dinner, there will be giveaways of all kinds of outdoor gear including two black powder rifles and several hunting knives.
To conclude the event, Dean Hulce of Norway will share his thoughts on hunting around North America.
Hulce has guided hunting and fishing all across the United States and Canada. He just recently returned for a year of managing a lodge and guiding on Kodiak Island Alaska.
"You can enjoy the stories of the hunt and visit with others at dinner," he said.
There are a limited number of tickets available for this event so early purchase is encouraged.
There is a requested donation of $5 per ticket to help cover some of the costs of the event.
