BISMARCK, North Dakota — North Dakota's Sportsmen Against Hunger program is accepting donations of goose meat during the early Canada goose hunting season, for efforts to help fill food pantries across the state.
The program is sponsored by Community Action Partnership, and many meat processors take part.
Hunters who want to donate must follow certain rules, including removing breast meat from the birds before giving it to processors.
More information can be found on the Game and Fish and Community Action websites.
The early Canada goose season starts Saturday and runs through Sept. 15 in much of the state. It runs through Sept. 7 in the Missouri River zone.
The program also will accept goose donations during the regular waterfowl season.
