Hunters Reducing Hunger

PHOENIX, AZ –-( The lamestream media told you: Nothing. But it does frequently refer to the benign life-saving wonderful efforts of environmentally sensitive animal lovers in PETA.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that: “NEWTOWN, Conn. — When you’re feasting on holiday meals and leftovers, here’s a story to tell — one that would not be possible without the thoughtfulness and generosity of hunters.

“A new study commissioned by the National Shooting Sports Foundation and conducted by Mile Creek Communications reveals that last year 11 million meals were provided to the less fortunate through donations of venison by hunters. Nearly 2.8 million pounds of game meat made its way to shelters, food banks and church kitchens and onto the plates of those in need.

” Given our challenging economic times, hunters’ donations of venison have never been more important to so many people,’ said Stephen L. Sanetti, president and CEO of NSSF, the trade association for the firearms, ammunition, hunting and shooting sports industry. ‘These contributions are just one way hunting and hunters are important to our way of life in America. Learning about these impressive figures makes me proud to be a hunter. I have donated game meat during the past year, and I urge my fellow hunters to strongly consider sharing their harvest. ”

” These figures are from confirmed sources, but annual donations could easily be double this amount if direct donations from hunters to friends and family are included,’ said Jim Curcuruto, NSSF’s director of statistics and research.”

Often overlooked by animal “rights” radicals is the fact that laws typically make it illegal to let any edible portion of harvested game go to waste. Urban dwellers are often unaware that meat does not come from a foam tray covered in plastic wrap.
