If you’re hunting an extra deer this year and don’t need the venison, you can donate it to charity. The annual DNR deer donation program is running once again. Shawano DNR Warden Kay Brockman Medaras says this is a great way to get much needed meat products into food pantries.
Just field dress the deer like you’d normally do and drop it off at a participating butcher. You can find a list of locations online at D N R dot W I dot G O V.
