The weather was good for Day 1 of the two day annual "Huntfest" held in Narooma each year. This year sees the addition of outdoor gear, kayaks, 4WD and boating along with the exhibits that include hunting and equipment, four wheel drives, camping, clothing, bikes and quadbikes, bow hunting, field cooking equipment, meat processing and preserving equipment.
HuntFest started life as a hunting DVD and Photograph competition and has now grown into a well-attended hunting and outdoors expo. HuntFest’s aim is to show case all new hunting and outdoor equipment on the market as well as to educate both hunters and non-hunters about firearm safety and hunting.
Today saw demonstrations in skinning and processing meat from game animals. The animals prepared were well respected and the demonstration, held adjacent to a very popular (sold out) stand that offered venison and goat burgers bought home the connection between beast and plate that everyone, young and old, acknowledged.
