What is Hunt To Feed

Hunt To Feed is a vension donation non-profit program.

We connect Connecticut's deer hunters with local butchers & meat processors where venison can be safely prepared as a donation for foodbanks, soup kitchens, and shelters. All deer donated through Hunt To Feed help feed Connecticut families who struggle with food insecurity and hunger.

Once your Connecticut deer is tagged and field dressed, you can drop it off at any of these participating Connecticut meat processors.

When can I donate deer?

We primarily accept deer during Connecticut's hunting season from September 15th until January 31st. If you have a crop damage permit and would like to donate deer outside of hunting season, please arrange a drop off by contacting Wes at

How many people can one deer feed?
