(UNDATED) - Indiana hunters can donate deer meat to those in need or to members of their communities through two DNR programs.

The Sportsmen's Benevolence Fund and GiveIN Game program allow hunters to share their bounty with those who would like local, low-fat and high-protein meat.

The Sportsmen's Benevolence Fund benefits Indiana's food pantries. The fund was created in 2008 to help offset deer processing costs. Harvested deer are dropped off at deer processors throughout the state. Last year, more than 70,000 pounds of ground deer meat went to food pantries. Hunters can find a processor in their area by searching at dnr.IN.gov/lawenfor/3987.htm.

The GiveIN Game Program was created in 2010 to help connect hunters to community members who want deer meat. This program works like an online telephone directory that allows hunters and community members to contact each other directly to donate or request deer meat. Last year, more than 715 people participated, with the need for deer meat outweighing the offers.

Hunters are encouraged to sign up and donate deer meat at: dnr.IN.gov/fishwild/7240.htm.
