Hunters May Donate Unneeded Game


With deer season kicking into gear Friday, the North Dakota Community Action Network reminds hunters they can donate game to those who are unable to fill their own tables.

It’s all part of the Sportsmen against hunger program. Any legally obtained game is accepted. 

Meat should be dropped off at a participating processing plant. From there, it will be taken to CAP and then they donate it to food pantries across the state.

Community Action Program Self-Reliance Coordinator Christy Smith says, “Last hunting season we actually had 5,300 pounds donated, so it was real good; a real good turnout. It’s a good program to get that much-needed protein source into our pantries and out to those who could really use it.”

West Dakota Meats is the processing center in Bismarck-Mandan that you can drop off your venison and beef at. But there are processing locations in all regions.
