WISCONSIN -- The final numbers are in from the latest Hunt for the Hungry campaign.
The program allows hunters to donate their deer to local food pantries to help those in need. This year, hunters from across the state donated 3,121 deer. That's up 8% from 2011. That breaks down to more than 140,000 pounds of ground venison delivered to food pantries across Wisconsin.
