|They'll generally come back to the house to consume baked goods as well (insert festive sugar cookies here).|
On a more serious note, there are some pretty cool things that happen as a result of deer season here in Missouri. The state's Department of Conservation sponsors a 'Share the Harvest' program that allows hunters to donate their harvested meat to hungry families throughout the state. Deer meat is an excellent source of very lean protein for those in need. Departmental statistics show that hunters donated 317,882 pounds of meat to this program during the 2011 hunting season. Thanks so much to all who participated!! You rock! And thanks so much to all the wives who put up with their husbands participation in this yearly pilgrimage/manhood/macho thing. You all rock as well.
Good luck out there, hunters!
