Annual Venison Feed returning to downtown Tomahawk Friday, Nov. 18
For the Tomahawk Leader
TOMAHAWK – For 55-plus years, Tomahawk’s annual Venison Feed has served as a kickoff to Wisconsin’s nine-day gun-deer hunting season.
This year’s event, sponsored by the Tomahawk Regional Chamber of Commerce and over a dozen local businesses, will feature free venison burgers, chips and soda, as well as beer for purchase, on the west end of W. Wisconsin Ave. in downtown Tomahawk, beginning at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 18.
As in years past, volunteers from local businesses and organizations will grill up the free burgers, and hunters and the public alike are invited to don blaze orange and enjoy the camaraderie.
The Venison Feed dates back to 1966, when it was held in the evening and called the Deer Cookout. The event was eventually moved to the afternoon and renamed, and in the following decades, the Venison Feed has served as an opportunity for family and friends to reunite before hitting the woods for the big hunt.
