Well Said: Gov. Jay Nixon

November 24, 2009

"Hunting, fishing and outdoor recreation are important Missouri traditions, and vital parts of our cherished way of life. Share the Harvest is a wonderful way for Missourians to continue that tradition, by providing fresh, nutritious meat for their neighbors in need.  I thank all the hunters across Missouri who also contributed their

venison to Share the Harvest.  This program really makes a difference for the people of the Show-Me State."

Gov. Jay Nixon

The governor issued this statement Tuesday after he donated a deer to Missouri's Share the Harvest program, a public-private partnership that provides meat to needy

families across Missouri. Nixon shot the doe Monday while hunting in Pulaski County. To find out more about the
