In the spirit of giving

With the Thanksgiving holiday rolling up quickly, Chris Buesing with Buesing Processing in Westhoff has teamed up with Hunters for the Hungry in the spirit of giving to provide the Food Bank of the Golden Crescent (FBGC) with donated venison that will be used to prepare meals for members of the community in need.

Through Hunters for the Hungry (HFTH), hunters can drop off legally tagged, field-dressed whitetail or exotics to participating meat processors; Buesing Processing will then prepare the venison for distribution to FBGC for a well-reduced price.

From there, FBGC allocates their donations to member agencies like CAMAL House in DeWitt County, along with other agencies in Calhoun, Colorado, Goliad, Gonzales, Jackson, Lavaca, Matagorda, Refugio, Wharton and Victoria counties. With this season being the first “doe days” in DeWitt County, there is a larger possibility that hunters will donate meat.

“Hopefully [property owners] take advantage of doe days,” stated Chris Buesing during an interview, “and if they don’t want the deer, well then they can donate it. So, this [HFTH] is a good opportunity for those interested in number management.”
