Oh my stars. There was meat everywhere and it was oh. So. Good. There must have been at least 15 booths full of meaty goodness.
We all started out with freshly pulled pork.
You can't get fresher meat than that. It was so tender and delicious!
To balance out the protein high, we tried some sweet potato fries. Yum!

Upper right: chicken fried axis with gravy. This was amazingly good.
Bottom right: chili. It was boring. No heat and no wild game, just plain ole beef.

The most adventurous thing we tried were possum meat balls. Yes, you just read possum. I only tasted one bite and it was ok, but pretty chewy. I'd compare it to beef, but again it had a unique chewiness to it.
I still can't believe we tried it.
I neglected to get a pic of the tables full of delicious desserts. We nibbled on pie, cookies, brownies, and cobbler.
This wild game cookoff was well worth the $15 we paid. The place was packed with people, they had a raffle, live and silent auctions and a band.
After our stomachs couldn't hold any more food, we opted to head back to our house and have an outdoor fire and some red wine.
It was a great way to end a fun night with new friend.
Have you ever tried any wild game meets? If so, what are your thoughts?
