Hunter's Harvest: Taking Aim at Hunger
Hunters benefit to help people in need and manage the resource
Processors benefit by getting advertisement and positive feedback for their involvement
Mississippi families benefit by receiving a valuable source of needed protein
What is Hunter’s Harvest?
It is estimated that some 400,000 Mississippians, including over 93,000 children, live below the federal poverty line and receive emergency food each year. The Hunter’s Harvest Program works with deer hunters and participating deer processors from across the state to provide a network for the donation, processing, and distribution of venison harvested by Mississippi sportsmen. The program is a great way for hunters to manage the resource and give back to those less fortunate at the same time.
How can I get involved?
DEER HUNTERS: Contact your local deer processor and encourage them to become a part of the Hunter’s Harvest Program. Talk with other members of your club or lease and encourage them to donate a number of deer from this year’s management quota.
PROCESSORS: Contact the Mississippi Wildlife Federation to find out how you can benefit from being involved in the Hunter’s Harvest program. We can help promote your business, provide freezers for storage, and provide packaging for donated venison – all at no cost to you!
NOT A DEER HUNTER?
Talk to your church or local civic
club about sponsoring the Hunter’s Harvest program in your community. We have the opportunity to make an impact in the lives of so many people across Mississippi – all we need is your support!
How does it work?
PITCH IN A POUND: Hunters can choose to donate a pound or two of ground venison when they pick up their processed order. Participating processors will take donations and store them until distributed by the Mississippi Food Network.
HUNTER: A field dressed or quartered deer may be donated by a hunter with the hunter agreeing to pay the venison processing fee.
HUNTER’S HARVEST: A field dressed or quartered deer may be donated with the processing fees paid through the Mississippi Hunter’s Harvest Program. Funding for this method of donation is raised through grants, businesses, and personal contribution
Please help us fund the 2020-21 Hunter’s Harvest Season.
We rely on public support to run the program, and are currently seeking donations to help us continue this vital program.
