Deer processing shops aid in venison donation

Pennsylvania’s woods have been full of tens of thousands of hunters this week. The state’s firearms deer season kicked off on Saturday and runs through Dec. 10 with the exception of this Saturday, Dec. 4.

According to the National Deer Association, between 2011 and 2020, Pennsylvania ranked second in the nation three times for buck harvest per square.

Area shops like Doug Peffer’s Deer Cutting and Smokehouse have been inundated with customers. On Monday night, they had to stop taking fresh deer because they don’t have the capacity or storage. They are hoping to resume taking fresh deer this weekend.
