NSSF study: Hunters donate 11 million venison meals

A new study commissioned by the National Shooting Sports Foundation and conducted by Mile Creek Communications reveals that last year, 11 million meals were provided to the less fortunate through donations of venison by hunters. Nearly 2.8 million pounds of game meat made its way to shelters, food banks and church kitchens and onto the plates of those in need.
“These contributions are just one way hunting and hunters are important to our way of life in America,” said Stephen L. Sanetti, president and CEO of NSSF. “Learning about these impressive figures makes me proud to be a hunter. I have donated game meat during the past year, and I urge my fellow hunters to strongly consider sharing their harvest.”
