We attended a great banquet on Saturday night, put on by the Lloydminster Fish and Game Association. There was a great variety of meats, mostly wild prepared in a number of different ways: steamed salmon; fried whitefish; moose chow mein; sweet and sour goose; elk meatballs in mushroom sauce; roast elk; roast moose; a whole roasted pig and some turkey (pretty sure this was the domestic kind but good nonetheless). It was fantastic. Two of our boys (one from each family) were also celebrated in the way of a scholarship for one and top scoring mule deer – overall and youth- for another one. Proud moments for parents. They are definitely not little boys anymore. It is a great event bringing a diverse group together, connected by their love of hunting and a connection to nature.
