SKOWHEGAN (AP) – Moose, bear, deer and bison dishes are on the menu at a Skowhegan church’s annual game dinner tonight.

The fifth annual wild game dinner at the Skowhegan First Church of the Nazarene features a buffet of marinated venison steaks, moose chili and sloppy joes, bison meatballs, bear meatloaf, partridge lo-Maine and a wild turkey and rice cream soup.

For those who want more tame dishes, fish and hot dogs will be served. And possibly shrimp-bear jambalaya.

It’s not your typical church dinner menu but it’s popular. Pastor Brian Hale says that despite a 12-inch show storm last year, 125 people were served.

The game came from church and community members.

Tickets are $15 each with children 12 and under free.
