  • Delaware hunters donated more than 600 deer to the state's Sportsmen Against Hunger Program during this deer season.
    The donations were processed into more than 21,000 pounds of venison, which will provide nearly 100,000 meals for needy Delawareans. This venison was processed by eight participating private butchers plus a butcher shop located at the Sussex Community Corrections Center in Georgetown.
    “To improve the cost efficiency of Delaware’s Sportsmen Against Hunger program, we changed from paying our private butchers per deer to paying per pound this year,” said program manager Rob Hossler, noting that the change brought cost savings of more than $2,200 for the program.
