The Neshoba County Wildlife Jamboree will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 24 at the Neshoba County Coliseum.

The Youth Archery and Air Rifle Contest will begin at 3:30 p.m. and the doors will open for the Jamboree at 4:30 p.m.

Stew and chili will be served beginning at 5 p.m.  One of the highlights at the Neshoba County Wildlife Jamboree is an opportunity to taste wild game.

“A Taste of the Wild” will open at 6 p.m.  Area cooks are invited to bring their favorite recipes to exchange. A variety of wild game dishes are available for sampling. Family size wildlife dishes are needed for the tasting buffet, and anyone contributing a dish will receive eight free raffle tickets.

Cooks are asked to bring a large dish of prepared wild game.  Be sure to clearly print the recipe and bring it along with your dish so that it can added to the recipe book. Dishes must be oven-safe and/or microwave-safe, and clearly labeled with the cook’s name and phone number. Bring your dish to the North end of the Coliseum between 4-5:30 p.m.



The Wildlife Education booths will be set up. There will be many different organizations present to educate everyone about various subjects pertaining to wildlife management and conservation practices. Listening to these educational speakers will earn you a chance to win some of our awesome prizes. Door prizes will be awarded throughout the evening as well.  

Mounts for the Big Buck Contest should be delivered to the Extension Service office by Monday, September 23 at 5 p.m.
