A program to help stock Food Pantries in the region with Deer Meat donates nearly 10,000 of meet during the recently completed Hunting Season.
The Missouri Department of Conservation administers the program which allows hunters that have Deer Meat leftover after hunting to have it processed at no cost to them thanks to the financial support of the Conservation Federation of Missouri and White River Valley Electric Co-op. The meat then is donated to Food Pantries in Barry, Christian, Douglas, Ozark, Stone, and Taney Counties.
More information on the program plus other conservation news as reported by Taney County Agent Chris Boyd can be heard on this week’s Conservation Report which is below:
