The NJDEP Division of Fish and Wildlife’s Garden State Deer Classic is slated for January 12 – 15, 2017 as part of the Garden State Outdoor Sports Show taking place at the New Jersey Convention and Exposition Center in Edison, NJ.
This year’s display and show promises to continue the exceptional success of recent years, and even expands on the number and variety of vendors on hand. The Deer Classic and Division of Fish and Wildlife display continues to be a focal point for the show, and highlights the exceptional deer hunting opportunities available in the Garden State. Fish and Wildlife biologists will also be available to answer questions from attendees, and to distribute information regarding management programs and the wildlife of New Jersey.
Again this year, the show is pleased to provide three very good reasons to purchase admission tickets online:
- For every ticket sold online, the show is donating $2 to New Jersey’s Hunters Helping the Hungry (HHH). HHH is a non-profit organization working with regional food banks that enables hunters to donate venison to the needy while addressing the overpopulation of deer in New Jersey. Purchasing an online ticket is a great way to support Hunters Helping the Hungry so it can continue to provide hunter donated venison to people in need.
- Along with the show ticket, online ticket purchasers are being offered a one year subscription to a choice of Field & Stream or Outdoor Life magazine.
- Purchasing tickets online in advance saves you $5 off the general admission price

Thank you and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
Through December 1st, 2015 HHH has helped deliver over 8,115 pounds of venison equating to 32,460 meals to the NJ food bank system.
But we can do better! Due to the generosity of our volunteers, sponsors, hunters and contributors, we believe we have funds to allow “amnesty” for the hunters in January and February, 2016. Normally our hunters contribute $10 to $20 per deer.
HHH is a 501-C3 not for profit organization. There is currently no state or federal funds for the program. The entire program is run directly from your donations. Over 1,500,000 meals have been distributed since the beginning in 1997. At a cost of roughly $1 per pound!
Earlier this year we had several events/fund raisers: Lehigh Valley Sporting Clays event, Black Knights 3D bow shoot, John McMahon Family night, Striper Fishing trip and the Pequest Open House. All events were very successful. Thank you to all who came out and supported us.
Over thanksgiving we were on Fox Network Chasing News; Here’s the link: http://www.my9nj.com/chasing-news/54866525-story
We had a lot of fun with Diana Blass the reporter from Fox news and thank her for the great story.
For 2016; Clay shoot and fishing trip again in the May frame. Among our many other events large and small.
As usual check out our (NEW) website for more info.
Our goal is to have an approved butcher in every county in our great state. We need your help with this. If you know of a butcher in your county (specifically Mercer, Warren and Sussex Counties), please spread the HHH word to them. We will work directly with them to get them set up as an official HHH butcher.
We did add another butcher in Camden County; Bringhurst Fine Meats/Catering 38 W. Taunton Road Berlin, NJ 08009 (856) 767-0110
How can you help?! Following are a couple of ideas that that can help HHH with just a click of the mouse!
Do you GoodSearch?
Switch your search engine on the computer to Good Search. www.GoodSearch.com.
Type in Hunters Helping the Hungry, NJ where it asks “Who do you GoodSearch for?”. Your computer will save this setting. GoodSearch is a search engine powered by Yahoo. For every search you make on the world wide web, a penny is donated to HHH. These pennies add up quick if everyone you know switches to GoodSearch!
Do you shop at Amazon?
First go to www.HuntersHelpingtheHungry.org.
On the right side of the butcher page there is a link for shopping at Amazon.com Click on this link and start shopping at Amazon.com. 4%-10% of the total cost of anything you buy will be donated back to Hunters Helping the Hungry. This will not change the cost of any items you are buying. There is a tremendous potential here for raising a ton of money, especially when shopping around Christmas time!
Like us on Face book; we have over 300 likes so far! Face book is a quick and easy way for us to communicate quickly with everyone.
For those of you on our mailing lists THANK YOU for your donations, financial contributions, time, and deer. Hunting season is upon us and you played a major part in helping those not as fortunate as most in New Jersey.
Please pass this mailer on to your friends, the larger our network the more good we can accomplish!
