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 season, please arrange a drop off by contacting Wes at HuntToFeed@Gmail.com.

One deer provides up to 160 venison-rich meals.
