Venison donation program connects hunters to public

An Indiana venison donation program is connecting hunters and the public.

The program that allows hunters to give deer meat to the public will continue again this fall.

GiveIN Game, the DNR Division of Fish & Wildlife's venison donation program, will be available for its fourth year.

Hunters who are willing to donate venison and people who would like to receive venison may begin registering this week.

GiveIN Game makes it easy for people to connect and set up a free exchange on their own schedule.

Selling, bartering or trading for venison is illegal.

The program had 675 participants last year, with the number of people requesting venison more than five times greater than those offering to donate venison.
