Deer hunters donate venison to food pantries

MILWAUKEE (AP) Wisconsin deer hunters are donating the proceeds of this year's early deer hunt to food banks.

Nearly four-thousand deer already were donated as of last week.

The state's venison donation program takes deer killed outside the chronic wasting disease eradication zones to food pantries.

Laurie Fike is coordinator of the Department of Natural Resources program. She says this year's deer donations could top ten-thousand after the state's nine-day gun season later this month.

Fike says hunters typically donate about two-thirds of their kill.

This year's spike also is attributed to the state's Earn-a-Buck program. In some areas, hunters have to first shoot and kill an antlerless deer before taking a buck. Many are donating the antlerless deer.

There are dozens of hog farms here in southcentral Penna; we'd most happy to *donate* to the Mosque Pantries, GD! Just say when and where. I'll have the tanker trucks on the road within hours...

It's a nice gesture and it could have very good results, but the urban poor may not be used to preparing and cooking venison and I suspect that without some education many will turn up their noses at it.

But the idea could be used to resolve two problems, that of hunger and that of an exploding deer populations such that deer are invading urban and suburban subdivisions. The North American deer population is now larger than it was when the Pilgrims landed but nobody wants to agree to "killing Bambi" to control it.

Then there is the problem of the wild geese that have stopped migrating and are infesting urban parks and waterfronts, turning recreational areas into a gooey guano coated landscape. Turn them into food for the urban poor.
