    Default Wild Game Dinner

    Fox and I attended the annual Masonic “Wild Game Dinner” in Kemptville last night. Great turnout, full house with over 400 people enjoying over 15 different wild game meat dishes.

    Some of the dishes I can remember; Elk and Beaver meat sliders, Goose pate, Venison Stroganoff, Wild Boar and Moose soups, Caribou roast, Crocodile Meat Pie, Bear Shepard Pie, Beaver (pulled pork style) Lynx nibblets, Squirrel and something rather unusual… Coyote.

    There was an excellent gumbo that the meat eludes me and a couple other dishes I can’t recall at the moment (maybe Fox will add them).

    Not all dishes we’re great, like the sauce on the coyote was a little too strong and the Link nibblets were way over cooked and very dry. Difficult to cook some dishes and serve them buffet style, doesn’t always do the meat justice.

    But for a dinner out, to sample all that exotic meat, for only $20, you really can’t complain.

    All in all a nice evening, the Mason’s did an excellent job organizing the event again and hopefully they did well on the fund raising efforts. One young fella had a great evening..won over $1200 on the 50/50.

    Sounds like a good night out and for a good cause. Haven't been to a game dinner in a long time. Used to go often when I could find tickets. I'd agree, some times things get a bit cold that need to be hot, but always had a good time.

    The sauce was a little strong, but the meat was fine. I know it was passed over by many in line, lots left over for 2nds.

    Funny how the mind will refuse to let it pass the lips, without even knowing what it tastes like

    I remember when black bear had that reputation. You'd never see it near a butcher's knife. Nice to see you guys enjoyed yourselves.

    Here is the list of animals.

    Elk, deer, moose, bear, grouse, squirrel, kangaroo, coyote, beaver, horse, ground hog, crocodile, wild boar, caribou, lynx.

    The one beaver dish was good, the other was horrible. The coyote had a sauce that was really rough, strong, I honestly cannot say what the meat tasted like. The caribou was the best there, just simple meat and cooked right. There were elk sliders, very good. The gumbo was done with a venison sausage I do believe. The meat pie was a bunch of meats, could not pull one from another, made it tough to judge. There was a moose soup, it was very good, the wild boar was decent, stronger than domestic pork, which is to be understood. The meal paired well with Molson Fireside, better than the Coors Light but we did not get 2 of the Fireside out of the gate and got stuck with water as our second beverage.

    It would have been nice to line things up to compare a bit better rather than fill the plate and hope you remembered what things were.

    I said at the start of the night that my stomach was going to end up being the ark, and it did, I tried everything. I was disappointed by the lynx as I have heard very good things about wild cat, they just ruined it.

    We shall see what next year brings.

    Kangaroo is a darn fine table fare. Sounds like you guys had a pretty good meal, would be nice to see more of these.

    What a mature crowd this site is becoming. I was expecting.....

    What is nice to see with this dinner, is that a few local Deer camps go as a group and reserve a table together. A good opportunity to catch up on their winter activities.

    What adds to it being a great social affair is that the seating is large round tables with 8 chairs at each. So you sit and 'break bread' with strangers. Makes for some good conversations...a captive audience of people who haven't heard your hunting stories yet HaHa.. .

    gbk, Wellington lodge in Erin hosts a wild game dinner every spring at the masonic lodge in Erin. Should be May 7 this year. I have attended annually for years, even before I joined the lodge. I have been lucky with successful turkey hunts the past few years to donate a fresh wild turkey to the dinner.
