"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
