Michigan Sportsmen Against Hunger

The Michigan Sportsmen Against Hunger program is a perfect way for hunters to share a part of their harvest this fall, or donate a whole deer. In addition, anyone can make a monetary donation on the DNR eLicense website. MSAH is a 501(c )(3) non-profit organization.

Since 1991, MSAH has been working to help connect donors, wild game processors and charities that feed needy individuals. An all-volunteer organization with no paid staff members, MSAH is operated entirely by sportsmen and women concerned about making a positive difference in their communities. Together, they have assembled a network of processors and charities to help channel wild game donations into the hands of those in need. 

Venison donations

  • To donate venison, visit a participating processor. You can either leave the whole deer or donate a portion of the deer.
  • An updated list of participating processors can be obtained by calling the Michigan Sportsmen Against Hunger hotline at 586-552-6517 or visit
