BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - A nonprofit plans to pay for venison donations from an upcoming hunt aimed at culling Bloomington's deer population.
Ian Munnoch tells the Herald-Times that Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry will use $7,000 in grant money to process the venison from an upcoming deer hunt at Griffy Lake Nature Preserve. Munnoch is a coordinator for the group.
The deer will be killed by sharpshooters with White Buffalo, a Connecticut-based nonprofit wildlife management company.
Munnoch estimates 4,000-5,000 pounds of venison will result from the cull. All of the deer killed will be taken to a deer processor and then donated to Hoosier Hills Food Bank.
The grant money comes from the Sportsman's Benevolence Fund through the Indiana Department of Natural Resources.
