Washington, DC –(AmmoLand.com)– The United States Senate on Friday unanimously approved Senate Resolution 374, recognizing the cooperative efforts of hunters, sportsmen’s associations, and other organizations to establish programs that provide game meat to feed the hungry across the United States.

Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus (CSC) Senators Blanche Lincoln, Tom Harkin, Saxby Chambliss and Debbie Stabenow introduced the resolution recognizing the efforts of hunters, sportsmen’s associations, meat processors, hunger relief organizations, and state agencies that make the program such a success.

“As the number of hungry people continues to rise, the Hunters Feeding the Hungry program is helping bring food to those most in need and is a wonderful example of neighbors helping neighbors, said Lincoln. “After my family’s recent deer hunting trip, my sons were able to donate their own game and experience the joy of giving.”

The U.S. House of Representatives passed a similar resolution, H.RES.270, offered by CSC Member Rep. Phil Gingrey, along with 43 co-sponsors, earlier this year.

Senate Resolution 374

We can have the best wildlife habitat imaginable and a record number of people who buy fishing and hunting licenses, but it won’t matter if misguided laws and regulations are made at the federal and state levels that negatively impact our outdoor traditions. Keeping sportsmen’s issues front and center is what the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation does. Day in and day out, our sole focus is on providing a voice for sportsmen in the political arena. Serving as the first line of defense in protecting America’s outdoor traditions as well as promoting the sportsmen’s agenda through the collective muscle of sportsmen’s caucuses

When I lived at a mission for awhile in Arizona I earned my keep by serving food to the homeless. It was very rewarding and all of the barbequed havaleena meet and all of the venison was donated by hunters who cared about others.

I thank GOD for those hunters that donated and the meat was delicious!

I do not hunt, nor do I want to. But hunters are good people too.

I'm an avid shooter and have been reading lots of articles where hunters are donating record amounts of game to feed the hungry in this distressed economy. I also know hunters appreciate the wildlife and natural preserves more than most.

I'll be donating my ammo money to some good causes to do my part. Thank you to the hunters for showing us a way to be generous and help our neighbors in need while maintaining the traditions that made this nation great.
