For the 2017/2018 season, the $10.00 donation for deer over 50 lbs. dressed hanging weight will remain the same.
The donation for deer under 50 lbs. will now be $30.00.
During the early fall bow season (Sept. 9 - 29, 2017), hunters will not be required to donate cash as well as deer for deer over 50 lbs. Hunters donating deer under 50 lbs. will still be asked to pay the first $30.00 of the processing fee.
Venison has become a very valuable item at the food banks. Donations will still be accepted if hunters wish to help with the cost of processing, but will not be mandatory.
