It’s no secret the NRA has been a leading advocate of Hunters for the Hungry programs since the early 1990s. This November, we advance our advocacy and celebrate our creation of National Wild Game Meat Donation Month to inspire hunters everywhere to share surplus game.
This November, the NRA and its members will celebrate the first-ever “Wild Game Meat Donation Month” to encourage all hunters to donate extra venison or other game meat to help provide meals for those in need.
Residents in Gregg County, Texas, see Warden Todd Long coming—and why not? More than a decade ago, he began turning roadkill and illegally taken game into packaged meat to distribute to members of the community who may benefit from it. His diligence and generosity has become a regular part of the landscape in East Texas.
Contrary to popular belief, most hunters don’t hunt for a trophy but rather for the meat a successful hunt can provide, according to a survey launched in 2008 by Responsive Management of Harrisonburg, Va., which has measured various aspects of hunting for several states across the country for almost 30 years.
