Des Moines, Iowa – RadioIowa – Deer hunters in the state are urged to consider taking part in a program that benefits needy Iowans.

Iowa’s HUSH program is now in its 13th year. HUSH stands for Help Us Stop Hunger. The program is funded by hunters, who pay a dollar surcharge with each deer tag purchase. Hunters can donate their deer to HUSH, which works with 81 participating lockers to provide deer meat to the Food Bank of Iowa.

During last year’s hunting season, more than 33-hundred (3,300) deer were donated, generating over 604-thousand (604,000) meals for needy Iowa families. The first of Iowa’s two shotgun deer seasons opens on December 3.
