LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) _ Nebraskans who want to donate or receive deer meat can participate in the Deer Exchange.
This program brings together hunters who have a surplus of deer with people who could use the venison.
The Deer Exchange runs through March 1. Hunters and potential recipients join a database and search for other participating parties in their area. The venison may not be sold, but recipients may pay for the processing.
Recipients will have the choice of accepting whole field-dressed deer, skinned and boned deer, wrapped and frozen deer or processed meat. Donors are responsible for field dressing and checking deer at a check station before transfer. Transfers tags are available in the 2016 Big Game Guide.
