The Jacksonville Daily News reported that the Farmers Manage Deer project received funding from the NC Tobacco Trust Fund Commission this week. The NC Wildlife Federation was awarded with a $150,000 check on 11/10/12 for the project that will allow hunters to hunt on farmland for two weeks during deer hunting season 2013 with the goal of helping to manage the deer overpopulation, therefore decreasing crop damage and increasing the supply of protein by the local food banks through the donated venison.
NC Hunters for the Hungry will process the venison at NCDA &CA certified facilities, grinding and freezing the meat into two pound packages and distributing it to local food banks.
