From the Iowa Department of Natural Resources - Partnership Reduces Deer Herd, Helps to Feed Iowans in Need

Share your local deer harvest with Iowans in need It has been 10 years since the Iowa Department of Natural Resources and the Food Bank of Iowa joined to promote a new program to help reduce the size of Iowa’s deer herd, and help Iowans in need receive a healthy meal.

The Help Us Stop Hunger (HUSH) program allows hunters to donate any legally harvested deer to a participating locker as a way to encourage hunters to harvest more deer.

Lockers process the donated deer into ground venison in specially labeled two pound packages that are picked up by the local food bank and distributed in the community. HUSH lockers have processed 56,000 donated deer providing more than 11 million meals since the program began.

This program exemplifies Iowans helping Iowans.
