TN – HUNTING – Going hunting this weekend? Your deer could feed a hungry family at Christmas

The Tennessee Wildlife Federation is still accepting donations for its Hunters for the Hungry program, which helps cover the cost of getting deer meat harvested by hunters processed and into the hands of hungry Tennesseans. Program manager Matt Simcox said one deer “provides 168 servings of lean, healthy protein.” “Every year, we cover tens of thousands of dollars in processing costs so hunters can donate deer free of charge and help their hungry neighbors,” he said. “With thousands of Tennesseans hungry due to COVID, we’re pleased to still have funds to cover costs for hunters who want to donate whole deer to the program.” The wildlife federation partners with local meat processors to process the venison and get it to food banks and soup kitchens. Donated deer will be tested for Chronic Wasting Disease. According to the state fish and wildlife commission, there has been an increase in deer hunting in 2020. As of Dec. 9, the agency reported 118,515 deer had been harvested by hunters, a 21% increase from last year and a 7% increase from the average harvest over the past five years.  [full article]
