First Annual Hill Country Hunt to Table Planned
On July 13, Texas Wildlife Association (TWA) will team up with Chef Kristi Wright of the famed Joshua Creek Ranch in Boerne, TX for the 1st annual Hill Country Hunt to Table Dinner. Based on the sold out success of the Austin Hunt to Table Dinner the past four years, TWA will expand to the renowned Texas Hill Country along the crystal-clear, spring-fed Joshua Creek and the famous Guadalupe River. This event too, will highlight wild game as the main course in hopes to get people excited about preparing, eating wild game and celebrating Texas’ unique hunting heritage.
“Game, arguably, is the most natural, purest form of protein available.” Said David Brimager, TWA’s Director of Public Relations, “As Texas’ population has grown and urbanized, the distance between people’s food sources and their plates has increased exponentially- in terms of miles as well as knowledge and experience.”
In addition to an incredible meal featuring wild game fare, raffle items and good conversation, the dinner will feature acoustic serenading from TWA member Zach Nytomt. Nytomt hails from the small North Texas town of Argyle however, he now calls the Texas Hill Country his home. Nytompt’s unique voice and soulful sound have reached far beyond the borders of genre and geography, with the release of his new EP titled “NY to MT” –New York to Montana.
As the local food movement continues to generate a buzz, TWA aims to provide a short cut to that knowledge and experience by offering more hunt-to-table dinners across the state. Embracing a slightly different take on the farm-to-table model while welcoming those who support the hunting community as well as encourage those who may have reservations about it to attend and explore wild game as a protein source. Seating will be outdoors; family style which offers a unique chance for strangers to quickly become friends.
“Whether it’s around the campfire or a table, people connect when they share a meal.” Brimager said. “These dinners bring people together and the conversation allows us to naturally share the legacy of conservation through hunting.”
Good food, live music and conversation will be just a few of the highlights from this event. TWA would be honored if you would share a seat at the table. Tickets are on sale now.
