How many of you guys and gals have the "Hunters Against Hunger" or something similar in your areas? We have it here, but usaully the money to pay for processing runs out before the donated animals do. Also, I've heard that in some states, they have stopped the program because of lead in the meat. (Is this some sort of anti-hunter tactic, or perhaps the program has been stung by a litigation in the past??)

I have heard about that program in TN but have never seen anything on it. Whenever I drop my deer off at the processors you would think I would see a flyer or something about it.

So if we do have it, it is flying under the radar in my county.

We have something like that here in the county I live in. Besides, there's plenty that come down from the big cities (like Dallas, etc.) who hunt strictly for their trophies leaving the meat behind for someone else to collect. Oh, they pay for the processing of the deer along with getting their trophy mounts, and the meat goes to either those in dire need, or those wanting to pay for a little more venison in the freezer. I've worked with one of the local processors for many of the past seasons that I've been home to hunt. He's often spoken of supporting those in need here in the county.

A side note on that --
We were picking some meat up from him one time and my wife mentioned that we wanted to get some extra meat for one of our church functions. We bought some meat for the function, but got an extra surprise when he started pulling meat out of the freezer. We got more than twice the meat that we paid for.
Now you know why we keep going back to him year after year!

It's ok to sell wild game meat but you can only charge for what the processing/packaging fee's were,
they're not supposed to be charging anything for the meat.
I THINK that's how it's supposed to be done but I'm not 100% sure.
