Indiana Deer Hunters Feeding Hungry Hoosiers
Hoosiers who need help will be able to put more food on the table this fall, thanks to deer hunters and the DNR Division of Law Enforcement's Sportsman's Benevolence Fund.
The fund makes it possible for hunters to donate venison through a participating butcher by paying the processing fee.
To participate, a licensed deer hunter must legally harvest a deer, field dress it, and deliver it to a participating butcher.
Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry, Feeding Indiana's Hungry, and the Dubois County Sportsmen's Club have developed a network of participating butcher shops throughout the state.
The organizations also have coordinated with food banks serving every Indiana county to pick up and deliver the venison to soup kitchens.
