Dove, Deer & Exotic Hunting: Oh Come on By!

The Hondo Area Chamber of Commerce will be hosting the 47th Annual Wild Game Festival on Oct. 28-29 at the City Park, located next to the Medina County Fairgrounds on FM 462.

The Festival is aiming to serve the large hunting community that flocks to this region each year to hunt for dove, deer, and exotic animals. This outdoor event will include the 2nd Annual IBCA Bar-B-Que and Wild Game Cook-Off. The featured challenges include beef brisket, pork spare ribs, chicken, and a wild game category. The chance to earn $5,000 in cash prizes and trophies are available to all that enter before the contest starts on Friday. The first place winner in the Wild Game category will win a safari photo tour for up to five at the 777 Ranch.

Those who are not competing are welcomed to be a voluntary taste-tester, stop by the loaded catapult, and/or shop at booths while listening to music provided by local talents. Wade Smith, Chamber Director, wants the Festival to be a place where people can relax, visit, and have a good time.

“We are promoting the event as ‘bring your lawn chairs in one hand and an ice chest in the other,” Smith said. “We want you to enjoy your experience here in Hondo.”

Vendors have until Oct. 7 to register for the Christmas in God’s Country Package Deal which includes reserved booth space for both Wild Game Festival and Christmas in God’s Country for an additional fee. Christmas in God’s Country is an annual local event on Nov. 19 that will produce vendors ranging from handcrafted arts and crafts items to commercial items.

Rules and regulations for the cook-off, as well as vendor requirements, can be found at www.hondochamber.com. For more information about the about the Wild Game Festival, IBCA Bar-B-Que and Wild Game Cook-Off, or any other information concerning the Hondo area or community events please call 830-426-3037 or email .
