It's a win-win for municipalities, hunters and soup kitchens. Deer populations get reduced, hunters gain access to hunt new lands and meat, the number one item needed at soup kitchens, is donated to provide hundreds of meals for those in need. Nearly every state has a venison donation program and I highly encourage you to participate. Not only will you help others in need and project a positive outlook on hunters, but you'll also feel good about giving back. I know I do.
