The annual Wild Game Feed has become a very popular event for locals, neighbors, and visiting hunters. The feed will be Saturday, Nov. 16, at the Fallon County Fairgrounds Exhibit Hall in Baker with proceeds benefitting the American Legion, American Lutheran Church, and Greenhorn Target Shooting Program.
The free will donation meal begins at 6 p.m. with a gourmet menu of exotic meats including deer, elk, buffalo, bighorn sheep, mountain goat, moose, and yak. The American Legion will provide a bar for the evening.
Prize winning games will follow the feed at 8 p.m. Jake Wagner of Hanging W Meats said, “There are some extremely valuable prizes this year.” Current hunting and fishing prizes include 24 guns, three bows, fishing equipment, whole hog cut and wrapped, ladies’ items, kids’ items, gift certificates, and gift baskets. A conglomeration of eleven prizes will be awarded by the ever popular hat auction with Dale Hande from Rhame, ND as the auctioneer. Only 12 numbered hats will be auctioned off, and numbers will be drawn for eleven winners.
Devon Banister from KFLN will emcee the event. The event relies heavily on donations, and Wagner noted, “It really wouldn’t fly if local businesses and people wouldn’t contribute to it, so we try to keep it local.” This year’s feed is expected to surpass previous years in attendance and prize offerings.
