Generous Youth in Indiana Donates Buck and Doe to FHFH

by | Feb 22, 2021 | News | 0 comments

In 2019, Andrew in Indiana shot and donated a button buck to FHFH for the local food pantry. He also harvested a nice 13 point that he kept for a mount. With his donation Andrew was entered into a contest for a gift card which he won! The gift card was used to purchase a new hunting rifle that he used in 2020 to shoot two does and another large buck – this time a 9-point that is in the process of being mounted as well. He donated the buck along with one of the does to FHFH.  He just had both bucks measured and scored. The one from 2019 was 155 7/8 and the one from 2020 was 153 1/8. 

We received this note from Andrew in appreciation for the gift card:

Thank you for giving me the gift card (from the contest) last year. I used it to get a 350-Legend. I shot my big buck this year with it and two more does to get my limit. It has been a big help this year and will help for years to come. I donated the buck and one of my two does because we don’t need a lot of meat and it is for a good cause. ~ Andrew

Andrew loves hunting, and his family appreciates having the opportunity to donate the meat locally to help feed those in need once their own freezer is full. Andrew is an honor roll freshman, runs varsity cross country, participates in 4-H and FFA, and he loves hunting, trapping, fishing, forging, and welding. Now he’s added “feeding the hungry” to his young list of accomplishments!

Thank you Andrew for donating your buck and doe to FHFH and helping to feed the hungry people in your community!
