Jägerfest – The Archery Hunt

Saturday 25th May

Autumn, the season for hunting and the season for harvest. Well, in Medieval Europe, anyway – and so the archers of Innilgard will hunt for Bear, Boar, Deer, Ducks, Goats, Plants, Fruits and all manner of Monsters, Strange Creatures and Edibles which may be found in the Hills and Woods!

Non-archers are also welcome to watch, play games, and try out some campfire cooking if wanted during the afternoon. Any person (archer or non-archer) may book for the feast. Helpers in the kitchen always appreciated!
