Sunday Territorian - - FRONTIER - — BART IR­WIN

THE rea­son most hunters in the NT pur­sue game is for the meat.

Mag­pie goose meat is one of the most de­lec­ta­ble game birds in the world. When I lived in Vic­to­ria I thought wild roast duck was the top dish served at home.

That was un­til I moved to Dar­win and tried mag­pie goose breasts.

The meat is en­riched by its ver­sa­til­ity. A goose plucked, gut­ted, but­ter­flied and rubbed with salt, then bar­be­cued on coals is a taste sen­sa­tion.

But it doesn’t stop there. Geese make a great curry, sa­tay or schnitty.

Mem­bers of NT Field and Game re­spect game so much they are hold­ing the sec­ond an­nual Game Get­ters’ Gala Ban­quet next Satur­day night.

Those men and women have trav­elled the coun­try, assembling a vast range of game an­i­mals and will present an ar­ray of del­i­ca­cies from 6pm.

Rab­bit, quail, mag­pie goose, wild duck, buf­falo, wild pig and fish will all be fea­tured.

“The first event last year was such a great suc­cess, it was a no brainer to bring the mem­bers and friends to­gether for an­other feast,” pres­i­dent Steve Lees said.

“Last year we had Greek grilled quail, goose sou­vla, Ken­tucky fried goose, goose curry, buf­falo steaks and mack­erel cut­lets. It will be in­ter­est­ing to see what the mem­bers share to­gether this year.”

It is a great fam­ily event and gives kids a chance to try lots of dif­fer­ent game and broaden their tastes.

Corel­las har­vested dur­ing the NTFGA crop pro­tec­tion shoots will be used in Corella Tomato soup.

A rare vari­a­tion on the Rosella Tomato soup prod­uct.

The Gala Ban­quet will be pre­ceded with clay tar­get shoot­ing from 3pm and the meals will start to be dished up after 6pm.

Karaoke broke out last year around the camp­fire and is high on the cards to again this year.

Campers are wel­come and an­other morn­ing of clay tar­get prac­tice will en­sue on the Sun­day morn­ing till noon.
