With deer season just around the corner, the Missouri Department of Conservation wants to make hunters aware of their local Share the Harvest processors. Share the Harvest is a statewide program coordinated by the Conservation Federation of Missouri and the MDC.“This program allows hunters to donate their harvest to families who need venison in order to make it through the months following deer season,” said Conservation Agent Tyler Brown.  “In 2013, 4,487 hunters donated 227,358 pounds of venison.”  Donating is easy. All hunters need to do is take their deer to an approved processor and let the processor know how much venison you wish to donate. The processor will package the meat, which will be picked up by local sponsoring organizations and taken to a charitable agency for distributionThe Conservation Federation assists local deer processors by providing funding to help cover the costs associated with processing those deer that are donated through the Share the Harvest program. This year, in Camden County, the Share the Harvest processors will be Tom’s Slaughterhouse, located on State Rd. A in Linn Creek, and The Butcher Shop, located on Illinois St. in Camdenton.
