On the eve of the traditional rifle opener, and Thanksgiving this week. Please remember that their are people that may have nothing this holiday. And that doe tag you could fill would be a welcomed gesture at some of Pa's food banks. The old fee used to be a $15 donation but funds by sponsors and also the PGC alike have contributed to off set those funds and now the donation is fee FREE.


To get a list of drop off sites as well as contributing butchers near by just go to: Hunters Sharing the Harvest


Simple as that. So if you fill your buck tag and still got antlerless tags to use but no freezer space this is a way to give back, help herd numbers and also feed a family or two this hunting season.

Yep it is a great program. Anyone who is up north hunting and don't want to deal with processing a deer can find a processor nearby to take it off your hands and turn it into food for the needy.

Check out their web site for locations.

I donate through a friend and unofficial channels to families he knows from his church who need meat. Often they even do the butchering themselves.

If HSH ever gets a processor on board that is closer to the northern Berks area, I'd be happy to drop off a deer. As it stands, I'd have to take the deer down to Richland or up to Pottsville...both a bit of a drive, so for now, I'll go through my friend and his church when I have the ability to make a donation.

I do check each year, though, to see if any new processors came on board.....I was sort of hoping Dietrichs in Kempton would get in the program. Seems like they'd get more business that way? I don't know.

Do butchers ever do a partial? As in, could I get 10 pounds of kielbasa and donate the rest of the deer? Or us the whole deer set aside for the program?

We used to donate to the local soup kitchen. We would bring them meat that we already had processed. I haven't done HSH yet but would love to donate.
