Local meat processors are busy preparing deer taken during the nine-day gun season including venison donated through the Hunt for the Hungry program. Hunters have the opportunity to give extra deer they’ve bagged to stock local food pantries. Steve Haberli, owner of Haberli Deer Processing in Sturgeon Bay, says he’s received 37 donated deer, so far, and expects a few more.
Once he’s finished, the ground venison is divided between Lakeshore CAP and Feed and Clothe My People pantry in Sturgeon Bay.
