As most of you know, our program experienced a 14 year low in the amount of meat donated in 2014. In an effort to increase donations, we added a 25 prize FREE drawing for hunters who donated deer to the program. For each deer a hunter donated, they were given a ticket into this drawing. We are pleased to report that the amount of meat donated in 2015 increased by 62,837 pounds. The total amount donated by the generous hunters of Virginia was 301,809 pounds. Enough venison for 1.2 million quarter pound servings! This brings the total amount of venison donated since the program began to 6,106,606 pounds – 24.4 million quarter pound servings!

Official Rules: This drawing is being held to encourage donations of deer to the Hunters for the Hungry program operated by Virginia Hunters Who Care, Inc. For each legally harvested deer a hunter donates at a participating processing location or collection site between the start of the 2016 Archery Season, Saturday, October 1st to the end of the General Firearms season on Saturday, January 7th, 2017 they will be given one ticket into this drawing. To be entered you must fill in the form completely. Processors may refuse to accept deer that have not been properly field dressed and cared for in a manner that insures quality useable meat. To help the program be as cost-effective as possible we ask that you donate mature large-bodied deer on which you have made a clean shot. This contest is not encouraging the harvesting of fawns! You may enter the contest as many times as you are able to legally harvest deer. Winners will be contacted by phone and posted on our website at www.h4hungry.org. If you have questions please contact us at 800-352-4868 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.

If we are successful this will allow us to provide 1.3 million quarter-pound servings of lean nutritious meat. Please explore our website to see how you can get involved.
