The Central Missouri Chapter of SCI paid for the processing of 460 whole deer that were donated to food charities.

The Share the Harvest Program, sponsored by the Central Missouri Chapter of Safari Club International, donated 28,300 pounds of venison during the 2011/2012 seasons.   “We really appreciate the venison donations by deer hunters in this area for they come at a time when there is a great need for food by charities in central Missouri,” said Earl Cannon, Chapter program coordinator.

The Conservation Federation of Missouri and the Central Missouri Chapter of SCI paid the processing cost for 460 whole deer.  “Our chapter thanks the deer hunters, meat processors, charities, Missouri Department of Conservation, Conservation Federation of Missouri, Safari Club International Foundation, Missouri Food Bank Association, Missouri Department of Economic Development, Governor Jay Nixon, news media, chapter members and all others who helped make the program so successful,” said Jim Lightsey, Chapter president.
