Harvested deer can be donated to food shelves
Deer donated to food shelves can be processed at no or very reduced cost to hunters, thanks to a program coordinated by the Minnesota departments of natural resources and agriculture.
The program is aimed at providing a sought-after food source to those in need while encouraging hunters to harvest additional animals to help manage the deer herd. Prior to 2007, hunters could donate deer to food shelves, but had to pay processing costs.
