Hunters Against Hunger

Hunters-Against-Hunger

 

Hunters who legally harvest big game during the hunting season can donate all or part of their meat to feed hungry Montanans. There will be no cost or processing fees for the donated meat!  Only legally harvested or confiscated big game animals can be donated (deer, elk, antelope, moose and wild bison).  No road kill can be donated.  Simply deliver the big game to the nearest participating meat processor (listed below).  The ground venison will then be distributed to Montanans in need through Montana Food Bank Network’s partner agencies.

If a hunter desires to retain part of the meat:

  • The meat processor will take a photo copy of the carcass tag to remain with the donated meat.
  • The original license will stay with the hunter’s meat and/or trophy.
  • The carcass tag or a copy of the carcass tag for each animal processed must be sent to MFBN with processing invoice to be kept on file for inspection by Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks when requesting reimbursement by MFBN.

To help with processing charges, anyone purchasing a Montana hunting license has the opportunity to make an on-the-spot donation to Hunters Against Hunger.  A hunter who applies for or purchases a deer, antelope, elk, or wild buffalo license may donate $1 or more in addition to the price of each license.   These contributions will help pay for butchering and distribution of the processed game.
