Just before the start of the 2010-2011 hunting season, the Montgomery County Deer Donation program along with Patriot LWM Outdoors, Bass Pro Shop and the Western Chesapeake Watershed Branch of QDMA received a welcome supporter in the Montgomery County Farm Bureau. With a $1000 donation from the Farm Bureau, the doe donation contest was taken from 2 time periods to over 10, increasing the chances for hunters to be rewarded for their hard work and dedication in the field. In an effort to raise awareness of the need for reduction in female deer populations, as well as the Montgomery County Deer Donation Program, the hunters that donate the most Montgomery County harvested female deer in a series of contest periods have a chance to win some great prizes.
The first three contest periods have come to an end and here are your winners: Paul Witt of White Marsh, Bob Turnbull of Mt. Airy and Phil Brower of Poolesville. Congratulations to the hunters as well as all that precipitated. To date the hunters have donated over 235 deer and almost 8000 pounds of meat to the Capital Area Food Bank so far this year. Keep up the great work and be sure to get in on the tons of remaining prizes and contests.
