NATCHEZ — Mark your calendars outdoorsmen and women — the 14th annual Redneck Adventures Outdoor Extravaganza is just around the corner.

From Feb. 14 through 23, the extravaganza will feature hunts of all kinds, banquets, raffles, giveaways, military tributes, fund-raisers and much more.

“Last year’s extravaganza was a great weekend success,” said Jimmy Allgood, event coordinator and host of the Redneck Adventures television show. “It featured special-needs kids, adults, veterans, business leaders and all varieties of hunters.”

Friday night banquets will be at the Natchez Community Center on Franklin Street, while all other activities will be at the Riverfront RV Park in Vidalia.

This year’s event will kick off Feb. 14, with a banquet, auction and pairings for all hunting groups. Tables are available for $250 for 10 tickets, or individual tickets at $25 each. Food will be prepared by famed chef Bingo Starr and pitmaster Red Owens.

Throughout the week, Feb. 17 through Feb. 21, there will be various hunts, some of which will be for special-needs hunters and veterans.

A Poker Run with prizes on Feb. 15 is also planned.

“It’s going to be one heck of a 10-day stretch, so you won’t want to miss out,” Allgood said.

Individuals, groups, businesses and teams can sign up now. For information or to register, contact Allgood by email at redneckadventure@yahoo.com, by calling 601-597-6658 or visit his website at redneckadventures.com. You can also like the Redneck Adventures Facebook page.

“To help pull this off, we’re looking for both hunting land and volunteers,” Allgood said.

In addition to squirrel, rabbit, raccoon and hog hunts, there will be cooking competitions including wild game cook-offs of all sorts.

Allgood said several local non-profits will contribute to the extravaganza, and over the years, the event has gotten bigger, drawing support from many people throughout the community.

“This event keeps growing, giving us the chance to showcase our offerings and Southern hospitality to the rest of the world,” Allgood said. “So come join the team in any form and fashion, and it will also give you and yours a great new look at the outdoors with folks from all walks of life.”
