This cache was placed in celebration of one of my favorite events. The Wild Game Supper in Bradford, Vermont. My first times were as a child with my parents and grandparents. From there it has evolved into a tradition of sorts. Luna and I look forward to this event just as I did when I was 11. If you have an appetite for something different, follow the Call of the Wild!!
Wild Game Supper history; The Wild Game Supper was first held in 1956. According to Game Supper history, Cliff McLam, Trustee, put on the first supper. The Church needed a new sidewalk and Cliff thought a game supper would raise money for the project. The first meal consisted of one deer, two or three coons, and three or four rabbits. Total profit was $83.14.
Over the years the Wild Game Supper has grown. In 1974 1000 guests were served and 400 were turned away as they had only planned for 1000. The Game Supper is traditionally on held the Saturday before Thanksgiving each year. Serving times begin at 2:30 and run until 6:30. Tickets are available by advance reservation only, but in recent years there have been left over tickets for walk-ins.
Each year some form of a "specialty" is served. This year it was emu sausage, but in past years I can remember duck ravioli, pheasant pie, and ostrich. One item that was not a hit was beaver. I liked it, but most guests did not, the reason it is no longer served. The only item I have ever had that did not appeal to me was the liver patte. My all time favorite is the wild boar bacon. All in all a great time!
The cache is my usual micro in a different type of tree. Cache is winter friendly. Happy hunting.
