The outdoors association will be cooking up a bit of everything on March 15 for their annual Wild Game Dinner at the Haliburton Legion.
Buffalo, wild boar, elk, moose, deer and fish are some of the meats the association will have on offer at the fundraiser.
“It’s a good way for people to experience wild meat,” said Haliburton Highlands Outdoors Association president Rex Henry.
HHOA board member Dan Johnson has been running the dinner for more than 15 years, Henry said, with seasoned cooks who know how to prepare the meat to perfection.
It’s an ideal time to try food you might not have regular access to or have always been curious about.
Along with the meal, a silent auction offers items donated by local businesses.
Henry hopes the event will bring in $5,000 – the same as last year.
The HHOA runs the Haliburton County fish hatchery along with other outdoors programming with a budget of about $70,000 a year.
A big part of their budget is grants and donations from the community.
Tickets are $35 per individual or $55 a couple. Doors open at 5 p.m., dinner starts at 6:30 p.m. For more details go to www.hhoa.on.ca or call Melissa at the fish hatchery at 705-457-9664.
