7o Third Annual 'Game Feast' moil o d six on c :00te00Wi00 As Ever ith the ( ach e By Bryan Geter e they - More than 50 men and boys attended the third annu- ihadoal "wild game feast" held each year at Antioch Baptist Town'Church fellowship hall. ,n Za The Saturday evening,fellowship,event and feast rnEv" vwas highlighted by the Mongoose whmh Elmer =. Lav: Williams brought from home. The mongoose turned out to be a battery operated  squirrel-like toy connected with a ball. He said he purchased the toy at the West Georgia Commons Mall in LaGrange. Williams had a wire cage to keep the "animal" in and an old #2 wash tub turned up-side-down to hide it Under which made a noise when it hit the side of the tub. It scared not only the young boys but also some of The tabled was filled with delicious wild game includ- ing pheasant, deer, wild turkey, wild rabbit, salmon (armadillo), o'possum and much more. Hogansville City Councilman Larry Dorrough COoked 27 rabbits - baked, fried and stew. What's rabbit without gravy? A large pan of cat- head biscuits were devoured by the men who were sop- Ping their plates with the mouth watering gravy. The talk of the night was the 10 gallon pot full of "beaver stew" which was made by Skeet Kent. Kent said he killed the beaver behind Dorrough's eUe. Many wondered how many rabbits Skeet put into elicious stew. . Williams brought some hot sauce so hot that on the label it had written, "use only one drop and if you have heart disease or respiratory problems, do not use." For those who didn't like wildgame, hamburgers chicken were provided. Kent called these men, "sissies." The "possum" with the sweet potatoes cooked with him was the first to go. Williams said the wild gamers COuld look for much more o'possum to be on the next Year. Charles Lee, a member of Antioch Church, said while Niiand pastor Wesley Boatman and their wives were at mgara Falls three years ago, he thought about the idea of having a wild game feast. Boatman also thought it was a good idea. "It (the supper) has been growing each year,"  said. the The Antioch ladies have "a night on the town" while feast is going on, usually at Ryan's in LaGrange.

BUSY - Skeet Kent stirs the 'leaver stew" with a large paddle, making sure the stew is ready for con- sumption. He made six gallons of the wildlife soup for the feast. No one knows for sure what is in it. BRAVE Joey Chapman (L) grills some hamburgers as Jimmy Lee, Chuck Lee and Rebecca Lee look on. Rebecca was the only female to attend the feast.
