With the early Canada goose season now underway, North Dakota’s Sportsmen Against Hunger program again is accepting donations of goose meat from hunters.
Much like the group’s popular deer donation program, hunters can bring the meat to participating processors, but they must remove the breast meat from the birds before processors can accept them.
Hunters can clean their geese at home before taking it to a processor, but breast meat brought from home without a wing or head attached must be accompanied by written information that includes the hunter’s name, address, signature, hunting license number, date taken and species and number taken.
Hunters also may deliver geese directly from the field to a processor, but identification must remain attached to the bird until in possession of the processor. Since no goose carcasses or feathers are allowed inside processing plants, hunters must be able to ensure proper disposal and clean-up of carcasses.
