LINCOLN, Neb. -(Ammoland.com)- Hunters are invited to donate deer to the ‘Hunters Helping the Hungry’ (HHH) program this fall so ground venison may be provided to Nebraskans in need.

Hunters pay no processing costs for this donation-driven program.

There will be 21 processors around the state accepting donated deer during the Nov. 12 – 20 firearm deer season.

Eighteen are currently available for archery hunters. The HHH program is funded solely by tax-deductible contributions.

Hunters should first talk with processors but may keep antlers, head and cape and donate the rest of the deer.

Processors accept only whole deer in good condition to ensure a good yield of pure ground venison.

HHH, now in its fifth year, has provided 23,000 pounds of venison to those in need.

From 2012 to 2015, the number of participating hunters has grown from 188 to 437, and the number of donated deer has risen from 213 to 501.

Learn more about the program and how to support it at OutdoorNebraska.org/HHH or contact program coordinator Teresa Lombard at 402-471-5430 or teresa.lombard@nebraska.gov.
