At the same time that N.D. deer license numbers first inched higher than 140,000, a new program called Sportsmen Against Hunger came on the scene, working with local wildlife clubs and deer processors to develop a way for hunters to donate venison to community food pantries.
It’s a safe assumption that few hunters ever leave home thinking, “I just might end up in a hunting accident today.” That’s how it should be with hunting, as well. “It can’t happen to me,” is not the best attitude to bring to the field.
