Liberty Hill Baptist Church will host its annual Sportsmen’s Spectacular on March 11. The free event includes a wild game supper, door prizes, guest speaker Dan Garland 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. Supper begins at 5 p.m.

“Our annual Sportsmen’s Spectacular is one of our largest events at Liberty Hill,” the Rev. Kent Dodson of Liberty Hill Baptist 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.”

Guest speaker Dan Garland is the director of church partnerships at LifeWay Christian Resources and an avid hunter and sports fan.

Local outdoor enthusiasts will spend the afternoon cooking a variety of wild game using Dutch ovens, grills and smokers. In the past, the supper has featured deer, buffalo, bear, squirrel, frog legs, elk and even alligator.

The dining area is decorated with mounted trophies taken by members of the Chilton County community. Bobcats, fish, deer, snakes and even 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. The registrant must be present to win.

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

Groups should RSVP by calling Liberty Hill at 205-755-1694 or emailing
