Georgia Hunters for the Hungry

Georgia Hunters for the Hungry

SOCIAL CIRCLE, Ga. –-(AmmoLand.com)- Hunters are generous people. This fact is best showcased in the continued support of the Georgia Hunters for the Hungry program, through which sportsmen and women can donate deer at specific drop-off locations and the meat is processed and donated to Food Banks in the state. Since 1993, hunters in Georgia have donated more than 1.25 million meals of venison.

In addition to the 15 participating processor collection locations available now through Jan. 15, three weekend collection sites will be available on the weekend of Nov. 7-8, 2009 making sharing the harvest with those in need even easier.

New this year, the GHFTH program has extended donation opportunities to include the “Drop Back a Pack” program. This new opportunity allows hunters to donate some of their processed venison when they visit the processor to pick up their meat. All participating GHFTH program processors will have a freezer indicating where hunters can “Drop Back a Pack” for those in need.

Hunters interested in donating to the GHFTH program should bring a field-dressed deer to any of the locations listed below. All hunters who donate a deer will be entered into a drawing for a deer rifle, sponsored by the Georgia Wildlife Federation.
