Sportsman helping out

Hey everyone I was thinking about deer season only being about 60 days out for most of us and I still have alot of deer in my freezer I didn't utilize this year. Thinking about starting a little Sportsman deer drive. Lets see if we can get names of people who are severely impacted by oil spill but aren't working for BP and could use a hand until they get back on their feet. IF anyone knows someone in need or personally could use some deer meat please post a comment with your name and number. I have some deer meat and I'm sure others have some they can donate to a good cause. Lots of guys and gals catch way more fish than they actually need and may have some they can donate also. Thx everyone.

Cool
Good intentions I'm sure, but I would suggest that people do not post their phone numbers. It probably would be a better idea if they could contact you through the email link on the bottom of the post.

great idea... but possibly illegal
That's is a fantastic idea, but the only problem is that if they do not have a hunting license they cannot legallly possess the meat from any animals considered game in LA. If they don't have a fishing license they can't legally accept and possess the filets.

That's a ticket iwould have to take, but thats my own humble opinion.

well
If you go to Ted Nugent's website, he has a charity, Hunters for the Hungry I think is the name. They do pretty much what you want to do.

As long as you leave a possession tag with whom you leave the meat or fish with, everything will be ok. The receiver does not have to have a lic. I give deer and fish to alot of friends and family all the time.

Actually
Possession tags are only required until the game is rendered into food - meaning when it's butchered, packed and frozen for consumption.

So should be no legal problem with giving deer or other game away. In fact, it happens every year during feed-the-hungry campaigns.

Good Idea
Andy,

Can you guys coordinate a 'meat drive' once a year for us guys with more than we need?

Fish, deer, etc?

You guys are in a good position to execute this, arent ya?
