Ohio Deer Hunters Donate Thousands Of Meals


UPDATED: Wednesday December 25, 2013 2:35 AM

Officials say enough venison for about 234,000 meals has been donated to local food banks by Ohio deer hunters during the 2013 hunting season.
 
The wildlife division of the Ohio Department of Natural Resources and Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry say hunters donated about 58,500 pounds of meat from 1,170 white-tailed deer.

One processed deer amounts to about 50 pounds of venison and 200 meals.
 
The wildlife division and the farmers and hunters group help with processing costs.

Hunters who want to donate their deer aren't required to pay for the processing as long as the program has funds available.
 
Deer meat donations will be accepted through the close of deer-archery season, which ends Feb. 2.
