Meat is a hot commodity in area food pantries — it's expensive, in high demand and donations of meat are not as frequent as other foods — so pantries rely on programs like Donate a Deer. Hunters can help pantries in Pierce and St. Croix counties this fall by: • Legally harvest a deer in Wisconsin • Field dress the deer • Register the deer at a Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources registration station • Drop off deer at an approved site by Jan. 31, 2018
