2023 Lander Wild Game Cook-off

Celebrate wild food, wild places, and conservation



Join us this August 26, 2023 at the Lander Wild Game Cook-Off presented by Maven Optics and with special guests, the Houlihan Narratives.

We are still looking for eager wild game cooks who want to dethrone last year’s winners, the Roadkill Roasters, with a fan-favorite wild-caught or harvested dish.

Email jspence@wyomingwildlife.org if you have a wild game recipe you would like to share with the community at this great event!

Not to mention, there will be all the great activities we had last year, plus top-notch storytelling from The Houlihan Narratives as well as locally brewed beer from Pushroot Brewing before they’re fully open on main street in Lander.

We would love to see you at this year's Wild Game Cook-Off!
