— The Morgan County Chapter of the Alabama Wildlife Federation announces their 16th annual Wild Game Cook-off on Tuesday, Oct. 4 at Ingalls Harbor. Backyard chefs and amateur teams are invited to show off their wild game culinary skills. New for 2011 is a youth competition class.

More than 40  teams competed during the 2010 cook-off preparing entrees using turkey, quail, wild pig, venison, duck, and fish. Top entrees included Almond Crusted Smallmouth Bass, Pecan Butter Rum Glazed Catfish Fingers, and Wild Game Pizza.

 The competition contains three divisions —fish, fowl, and game. First, second, and third place awards will be given to the teams with the tastiest treats in each division in addition to awards for the Best Overall Winner, Best Presentation, and People’s Choice. There is no entry fee to compete. Pre-registration is required for all teams no later than Monday, Oct. 3.
