-- Deer hunters are encouraged to consider donating a deer to the Sportsmen Against Hunger program in North Dakota.
The charitable program raises money for processing of donated deer, and coordinates distribution of ground venison to food pantries in North Dakota. It is administered by the North Dakota Community Action Partnership, a nonprofit agency that serves low-income families across the state.
In 2009, Sportsmen Against Hunger adopted new processing guidelines. Participating processors will not accept deer shot in the hind quarters, and donated deer will be processed individually or only with other donated deer.
The current list of venison donation processing sites is available online at http://www.capnd.org/sahprogram/ or by calling (701)232-2452 or (800)726-7960.
