Hunters for the Hungry is again accepting field-dressed deer to donate to food banks across the state. Last year, nearly 30,400 pounds of venison were collected and distributed, providing about 152,000 meals, according to a news release from the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.
Hunters who want to participate may bring field-dressed deer to any dropoff location, and their names will be entered in a drawing for a deer rifle. In addition, hunters can donate some of their processed venison when they visit a processor to pick up their meat.
Fifteen processors across the state will participate until Jan. 15, including Middle Georgia locations Barlow’s Deer Processing in Eastman, Starley’s Deer Processing in Irwinton and Wright’s Deer and Wild Hog Processing in Milledgeville.
