Tomahawk tradition to continue with 57th Venison Feed

For the Tomahawk Leader

TOMAHAWK – A Tomahawk hunting season tradition, still going strong after nearly 60 years, is set to continue this week.

The 57th iteration of the annual Venison Feed will be held on the west end of W. Wisconsin Ave. in downtown Tomahawk on Friday, Nov. 17. Beginning at 11:30 a.m., free venison burgers and beverages will be served, and beer will be available for purchase.

The event will again be organized by the Tomahawk Regional Chamber of Commerce, and this year’s sponsors include Bethel Excavating, Crossbridge Community Bank, DuWayne Kreager Insurance, Harley-Davidson Tomahawk Operations, Kracker Barrel, K-Tech Kleening Solutions, Musson Brothers Inc., Northwoods Community Realty, Park City Credit Union, Tomahawk Furniture and Gun, Tomahawk Pharmacy, Trig’s, and WJJQ.

Volunteers from local businesses and organizations will fire up the grills, and hunters and the public alike are invited to wear blaze orange, join in the camaraderie and kick off Wisconsin’s nine-day gun deer season Tomahawk-style.

The first Venison Feed, then known as the Deer Cookout, was held in 1966. After originally being held in the evening, the event was moved to the afternoon and renamed. In the decades since, the Venison Feed has served as an opportunity for family and friends to reunite before hitting the woods for the big hunt.
