North Dakota Taking Venison Donations One Season At A Time

From the Grand Forks Herald:

For now, at least, North Dakota’s Sportsmen Against Hunger program this fall will only accept deer taken by archery. . . .

Meantime, findings from a May study to see whether eating wild game results in higher levels of lead in the blood will determine whether the program accepts rifle-killed deer when the firearms season begins in November.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention conducted the study in conjunction with the state Department of Health, testing nearly 700 North Dakota residents, and a final report is expected in mid-October.

I'm in school right now

So the homeless rates go up so now they're going to cut the amount of meat taking in. REAL SMART. How many years have food pantrys in north dakota been accepting deer meat shot with a gun? and now because of some study done NOW all of a sudden its a bad thing??? Me and my dad agree that this is a really really dumb idea.

The data was gathered by a Dr. Cornatzer.
Dr. Cornatzer is an anti-hunter and has used his clout as a "Dr." to promote anti-hunting.
By skewing his research (that is, if he actually performed ANY tests!) to show/find lead in meat, his main objective was to help stop hunting!
The "Lead in Venison" myth is just that, a "MYTH" designed by the anti-hunting crowd to stop hunting.
They will stop at NOTHING!!!
NOTHING being hunted!!
