Liberty Hill Baptist Church will host its annual Sportsmen’s Spectacular on March 12.

The event will include a wild game supper, door prizes, guest speaker Shane Russell and child-friendly outdoor games and competitions in the Kids Zone.

Kids Zone activities and registration for door prizes will begin at 3 p.m, while supper is set for 5 p.m.

“Our annual Sportsmen’s Spectacular is one of our largest events at Liberty Hill,” Liberty Hill Baptist Church Pastor Kent Dodson said. “It is such a great opportunity for us to meet people in our community and get to know each other through shared interests of hunting, fishing and the outdoors.”

An avid hunter and sports fan, guest speaker Shane Russell is the lead pastor at Shoal Creek Baptist Church in Deatsville.

Kids Zone competitions include archery, casting, BB gun target shooting and various others. First- and second-place trophies will be awarded for three age groups.

Local outdoor enthusiasts will spend the afternoon cooking various wild game using dutch ovens, grills and smokers.

In the past, the supper has featured deer, buffalo, bear, squirrel, frog legs, elk and alligator.

The dining area is decorated with mounted trophies taken by members of the Chilton County community. Bobcats, fish, deer, snakes and antelope have been popular mounts in previous years.

Throughout the night, drawings will take place for various door prizes. After the supper and the guest speaker, a drawing will take place for a generous grand prize; registrant must be present to win.

The Sportsmen’s Spectacular is a free event. If groups plan to attend, please RSVP by calling Liberty Hill at (205) 755-1694 or email tina@libertyhillonline.org.
