This past weekend, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s Hunter Education Division hosted a workshop for hunter education instructors from across the state. A wild game supper, cooked by Texas game wardens, was prepared and served.
Texas game wardens from Bastrop, Brown, Gonzales, Guadalupe, Lee, Mills and Travis counties participated. The menu consisted of feral hog carnitas, Nilgai antelope sausage and salami, white-tailed deer tamales and sausage, fried alligator, Nilgai and axis deer. Former Lee County Judge Evan Gonzales prepared the pinto beans, Faye Iselt provided a great chocolate cake dessert and a Seguin based restaurant provided potato salad.
A lot of work goes into preparing this kind of meal because wardens must seek, harvest, clean, prepare and cook the different types of selected wild game. Gracious landowners, business owners and game wardens provided the wild game and/or assisted with preparation. Barry Walther provided a nice sow for the carnitas and deer sausage and Jacob Beran and crew provided white-tailed deer and link sausage. Without everyone’s help, this task could not have been completed.
