Helping the homeless and hungry through the donation of venison and other game meat is one of hunting's greatest--and least reported--contributions to society. Hundreds of shelters and soup kitchens around the country rely on hunter-donated meat to feed those in need. So I was particularly appalled by this story coming out of Louisiana where state officials not only barred a local shelter from serving hunter-donated meat, but also destroyed 1,600 pounds of venison they found in the shelter's pantry. If you or I would have poured bleach over perfectly good, hunter-harvested meat, we'd have ended up with a very expensive citation for wanton waste. In Louisiana, state officials are proud of their work in "saving" the homeless from what they deem as unhealthy meat, despite the fact that hundreds of thousands of pounds of venison are eaten without incident at shelters across the U.S. every year.
