TOMAHAWK, WI (WSAU) - An annual hunting season tradition returns to Tomahawk Friday. It’s the 47th Annual Venison Feed.
Tomahawk Regional Chamber of Commerce Director Tamra Anderson says it’s best to come early, and they start at 11:30 a.m. Anderson says Tomahawk hosts one of the last free venison feeds in the country. It all starts with community donations that start in the summer. She says members of the community start donating venison in the summer, and it's ground and formed into patties for this event. The burgers are served with chips and soda for free until they're gone.
Anderson says there will be about 2,000 venison burgers grilled for this event, and their crew is ready and experienced. Five grills will each have a two-person cooking crew, so the lines will keep moving pretty well.
The Tomahawk Venision Feed is an old tradition. Anderson says it’s a great way to thank the hunters and their families for returning to the Tomahawk area every year for hunting and contributing to the local economy.
It won’t take long to go through 2,000 burgers. Anderson says they never have leftovers.
