Throughout the hunting season, hunters are encouraged to donate deer through the Iowa DNR’s Help Us Stop Hunger or HUSH program. There are 66 participating lockers. who participate in this program.
This program is funded by Iowa hunters, who pay a dollar surcharge with each deer tag purchase.
The processors then contact the Northeast Iowa Food Bank to arrange a pickup once the deer is processed. The donation often remains in your community.
