Wisconsin DNR is helping deer hunters avoid freezer burn on their extra vension with the deer donation program. Wildlife Damage Program Assistant Elizabeth Tanner explains the program and its laudatory goal.
Being a part of the deer donation program doesn't grant hunters an extra tag but they can snag a commemorative hat. There are two participating meat processors in Door County. For hunters planning to enjoy themselves in other parts of the state affected by CWD, all testing and handling requirements still apply for deer that are donated.
