Iowa's program is called Help Us Stop Hunger (H.U.S.H.) Every deer tag has an extra buck or two added on to it, which goes directly to this program. Therefore when you choose to donate a deer, it is at no additional cost to you! The deer has to be whole, and you cannot keep any part (except cape & antlers). The processor grinds all of it and it goes to the state for distribution. You also fill out a card at the processor that goes to the state and they draw for prizes after the season. It is a top notch program!
Sounds like a great program. You're saying that you can donate deer and not pay a dime? I wouldn't mind paying a couple extra dollars for tags to make that happen.
Yep. It's pretty cool and i'm pretty certain that I'm going to win the grand prize in the drawing, so it's doubly good for me.
