The charming town of Goldthwaite is situated in the Texas Hill Country. If you’re an outdoor lover, not only is it easy to find, it’s also easy to fall in love with. Hunting is the premiere attraction of the area, with an abundance of whitetail deer which almost equals the town population of approximately 2K. Having just opened gun season, Goldthwaite celebrated its boon as a hunting destination by hosting an annual chili luncheon for hunters from all over, welcoming them to the Hill Country and the 2018 season.

Featuring a feast prepared by locals in honor of the hunt and the many people it brings to Goldthwaite, the hunters’ chili luncheon is a great travelers’ social as well as a community gathering. The Mills County Chamber of Commerce hosts the annual Hunters Appreciation Chili Lunch on the first Saturday of gun season in Goldthwaite, bringing the local hunting community together. This year’s event was hosted on Saturday, November 3, and it’s something locals and tourists alike look forward to each year. Held at the Goldthwaite Pavilion, the lunch is served at 11 a.m. featuring drawings for prizes specially donated by area businesses, including firearms and new hunting gear. At a cost of a $5 donation per plate, the meal is well worth it! There’s also a cash prize contest for the “Longest Spike Buck” that’s reported by noon that day, and a silent auction, together with great area vendors in support of the festivities. With all the amenities a hunter could hope for, Goldthwaite is a destination that many make the annual trek toward. Having more than its share of prime hunting property to enjoy and a deep appreciation for hunters, it’s a unique Texas Hill Country location.
