Deer meat for the needy....

Whatever you want to discuss

Deer meat for the needy....

Postby Taproot » Tue Sep 09, 2008 4:51 pm

A post on the "other forum" got me to thinking about this again. Does anyone know of any programs around Oxford, or anywhere for that matter, that cater to accepting deer for their cause? The food pantry here only accepts non-perishables.

I'm willing to provide fully-processed meat for the needy or even elderly folks that just simply like deer meat, but can't hunt. I think I'll call some churches this year to inquire, but it would be nice to have a central location. I've heard that the MDWFP has a program, but I can't find any info about it. Any ideas?

Taproot, if you are just wanting to get rid of some meat you might check with your county jail. I know a few guys that needed to thin alot of does, they gave about 10 deer to the jail.

I think I'll pass on that. My donation, as far as that's concerned is called taxes...........On a side note, years ago, I called it a fine. DOH!!! :W:

Seriously, I'm very fortunate to have many places to hunt. Myself, and friends that don't really care anything about hunting, can get as many Does as anyone would ever want, legally. I think the churches are gonna be the way to go, but keep the info coming.

I know exactly what "twang" is and that's why all of mine are processed at home now.

Are you having someone else process yours?
I had some processed a few years ago and was not happy with it

I do all mine except running the minute steak through the machine

I usually give away way more deer meat then i eat and most of the time its to someone that i know that can use the meat and it give me great joy in knowing that they appreciate having it.

It would be great if there was some way to easily donate venison to the needy. TN has "Hunters for the Hungry" I think.

I'm sure there are some legal ramifications about providing "meat" for the needy, probably have to get FDA approval and all that nonsense :(
