Donation of game meat to families in need increased again in 2016 with a modest increase in donations by hunters and significant increase in meat donation through the Sportsmen Against Hunger (SAH) salvage processing program.

Deer hunters continued to show interest in, and play an important part in, donation of game meat through SAH to food pantries across the state.

Total harvested deer which were donated increased from 348 in 2015 to 397 in 2016. These numbers included 256 antlerless deer in 2016 compared with 204 antlerless deer in 2015.

The antlerless deer were donated through the SAH program in which a processing certificate completed and submitted by the hunter to a participating SAH game processor paid for most or all of the processing cost.
