With the opening of rifle season, and the ability to harvest two deer this year, this may be a consideration for those looking to help out.

 

 

A great program, which started from an idea from Bowhunter's daughter Taylor, 6 or 7 years ago...

Great for posting this. I personally have been donating Deer Meat to Feed Nova Scotia for years now. I do it through my butcher,(which is obligitory) Reids in Gaspereau. It is one charity that I totally support and believe in.

  I don't need the meat this year as I was fortunate to have success in Cape Breton for moose and an elk last week in BC; I was contemplating whether to hunt deer or not which made me think of this program as an option.

I always like donating when I harvest more than I need. If I'm lucky enough to get a second one this year, half or all will be going to the program. As a bonus for those who don't know, when you donate your name goes in a draw for a new marlin 336 in 30-30

If we aren't meant to eat animals, then why are they made of meat?

Same situation as with you for Moose. Still on the fence this year regarding Deer Hunting. Might fall off the fence however and donate again.

The very best advise anyone can give you (I mean this in a positive way totally) is as a new Hunter (you indicated that in another thread) that you read your hunting summary booklet from cover to cover. It is rather informative and will keep you on the straight and narrow regarding what you are allowed to do and what the regs are. I have hunted for decades but read it each and eevry year, cover to cover.

As to your question onlya6pt has answered it.

I read mine cover to cover every year as well, and highlight anything which I may get called out on if stopped by the authorities. Every year there are a few crucial changes. The last thing I want to do is get in s**t for doing something stupid which is clearly covered in the regulations.

I did read the booklet but I guess I misunderstood that part. I thought it stated I could either get a deer with Bow & Muzzle loader "OR" get a deer with my rifle. The devil is always in the details I guess.

Don't believe bear meat can be donated Quackaddict, from Feed NS Website:

 

"Hunters Helping the Hungry is a joint initiative of FEED NOVA SCOTIA and the hunting community. Through this program, hunters can help provide a valuable source of protein for families in need by donating deer and moose meat for distribution to food banks and meal programs across the province."

No it can't. The reason being the possibility of trichinosis
