Wild Game Dinner

We stopped by our church's Wild Game Dinner last night on our way to David's third basketball game for the day.  We live in a hunting and fishing paradise, and every now and then our church hosts a dinner where all hunters/fishers can bring a dish made with their trophies.

Wild Rabbit. Hee hee!

Trophies of the guests.  It was snowing when the dinner was over, so these will stay in the auditorium for the services this morning.

These guys looked nervous all night.

There were prizes for ID games.

There were raffles for tables full of prizes.
Raffle ticket monies were a fund-raiser for an organization that takes terminally ill children on hunting and fishing trips.  My name was drawn and I chose a beautiful walking stick, made by a man in our church.  I would show it to you, but I sent it home with someone that offered to put a leather hand grip on it.  I'm not so into guns and rods so I've decided hiking is my favorite outdoor MT activity.  Who knew they would have a perfect prize for even me at this Wild Game Dinner?!

Not sure a dish made out of rabbit that looks like a rabbit would appeal to me, but hey, to each his own. Would love to see a visitor's face when they walk into a church and see a bunch of animals on the wall. "What??? Are they having a lesson on Noah?" "Are they still practicing OT sacrifices?" Only in Montana...and Wyoming,and maybe Idaho.

Wow, I've never heard of such a thing, but if I were a hunter I would be THRILLED for this sort of opportunity.
