Minnesota Firearm Deer Hunting Season Opens this Saturday with Added Incentive to Help Feed Protein to the Hungry

Earlier this year, the bow hunters took part in a new program called “Hunters Against Hunger”.  Now, the Minnesota Firearms Deer Hunters are invited to do the same.  Not only are you helping to feed the hungry, but the processing fees of all deer harvested and donated to Second Harvest Northern Lakes Food Bank will be covered.

The program founded by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, in cooperation with the Minnesota Department of Agriculture provides a great source of protein for people in need while reducing local deer populations. Firearm season begins this Saturday, November 3 and ends Sunday, November 25.

Hunters willing to donate their harvest, simply bring their tagged and field dressed deer with hide intact to state-registered processor, Gamache and Sons Custom Meat Processing, 10 Farmstead Road, Esko, MN. Gamache and Sons will receive a $70 reimbursement from the State of Minnesota to process the meat. Once processed, Second Harvest Northern Lakes Food Bank will pick up and distribute the donation to Northland food shelves, soup kitchens, shelters and people in need.

Already this year 497 pounds of highly valued venison have been donated during the City of Duluth’s September Bow Hunt. Thank you, the protein rich donation provided 398 meals to in need Northland residents.
