    We have many deer hunters on this forum, and many who already donate their deer to programs and many here who simply stop hunting after they harvest what they need for the year, but wouldn't mind hunting still to help others out.. Discussing with some of the others here and the other mods, we're going to make an attempt at providing for those OSA members who are in need.

    What I would like to see happen is.........
    -any OSA hunters who are willing to donate their harvest, and will be hunting in the upcoming weeks, post up here in this thread if you're willing to donate, and how far you'd be willing to drive to meet someone and the area that you are in.
    -as a donating hunter, you'd be willing to get the deer from the field, and possibly meet the recipient within a reasonable distance from their area, or the recipient could do most of the driving and pick it up, after all, the recipient will be receiving a free deer :)
    -The donating OSA member needs to be aware of the transfer of carcass procedure.
    -Any OSA member in need, please PM me, and I will try to connect you with the hunter that's willing to donate and is in your area.
    -Since we are scattered across the state, a reasonable expectation needs to be in place as far as exchanging the deer goes. Everyone has a different definition of "what a long drive" is. I don't mind driving an hour or so to help someone out.............I don't expect any hunter to drive from Woodward to Hugo..............actually, I don't expect any hunter to drive any further than they want to lol. If a recipient wants to drive from Hugo to Woodward for a deer, please drive safe.

    What I would not like to see happen is.......
    -Someone asking for a deer who might want a little jerky, this is for folks who need food on the table.
    -Someone asking for a deer, setting up a meeting place and time and turns out to be a no show.........
    -Someone asking for a deer, receives the deer and decides they don't want it and dumps it somewhere(I've seen that happen)
    -Expect a deer to be butchered, packaged and delivered


    I think this can work, we'll give it a try and see how it goes, there's still almost a month of season left and I know there's lots of unfilled deer tags left here on OSA. I'll post this same thread in the hunting forum, it will be closed for comment, but it will make it visible to those who hunt and they can come here if they wish to help. Please go to the General Discussion Forum and locate this same thread if you wish to help and donate a deer, thanks.

    Edit: Still planning on this working again this year if there's a need.

    Offer still stands from last year, I know there was a thread in the General Discussions from last year, I'll see if I can find that one as well.
