The American tradition of hunting has been shared from one generation to the next, building a rich history that dates back to pre-Columbian Native American culture and the first settlements in the New World. This month, I want to give praise to the hunters who came before us and subsequently passed along this great tradition to future generations of Americans, as well as to highlight a new initiative NRA is spearheading for November—Wild Game Meat Donation Month.

The importance of the hunting culture in America cannot be overstated, both for sport and for food. Millions of Americans take to the field and forest each year to partake in this grand tradition. Hunting with friends and family brings fun and fellowship, but more importantly, for many, it is downright necessary for survival.

Besides our shared love of hunting and spending time in the great outdoors, there is nothing more American than giving and sharing. If you find that your own supply of meat is plentiful, please consider sharing your bountiful harvest with the needy. There is no better time than the present to do your part by donating to organizations that distribute excess game meat to the less fortunate in your area. I also want to express my praise to those who have previously donated via the Hunters for the Hungry network, for which the NRA has been a longtime proud advocate and supporter.

NRA needs your assistance to share the news about Wild Game Meat Donation Month, and to promote this worthy endeavor with hunters in the United States. In addition to contributing your excess harvest with those in need of nourishment, other ways that you can help as an individual supporter are by sharing your story with friends and by promoting donations on your personal social media pages. In addition, interested organizations can assist by publishing articles in newsletters, magazines and blogs and on social media to promote wild game meat donations.
