Briefly: Hunters urged to donate deer meat to homeless

Rep. Bryan Hulbert issued a proposal Monday to encourage hunters to donate their deer meat to help feed the hungry. If passed by the Environmental Committee, hunters would be able to receive up to two additional deer tags from the Department of Environmental Protection in exchange for an agreement to donate extra meat to organizations that feed the needy. Because commercial sale of deer meat is illegal in Connecticut, hunters would not lose any income by donating their extra venison to nonprofit organizations.
