Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon has shot an eight-point buck, and is donating the meat to an area food bank.
Nixon's office said in a news release that the governor killed the buck while hunting in Clark County in northeast Missouri on Saturday.
Under a program called Share the Harvest, the venison will be processed at Kahoka Meat Processing and will be packaged for distribution to a local food bank, shelter or feeding center.
The governor's office said that as of February, hunters had donated more than 2 million pounds of venison through Share the Harvest.
The program will be able to process up to 10,000 deer this season.________________________________________________________
