Hunters Encouraged to Share Their Harvest Share the Harvest This Hunting Season

The Pennsylvania Game Commission is once again offering the “Hunters Sharing the Harvest” (HSH) program, which provides donations of venison to help people in need.

Pennsylvania’s HSH program is recognized as one of the most successful among similar programs in about 40 states. It helps to deliver almost 200,000 meals to food banks, churches and other assistance programs in the Commonwealth.

To donate venison, hunters are encouraged to take a deer to a participating meat processor and identify how much of their deer meat to donate to HSH. There are a limited number of participating processors in our area; visit www.sharedeer.org for a list.

Investing in Our Rail Infrastructure

The Commonwealth recently announced a $1.9 million investment in freight-rail infrastructure in McKean County that will help retain more than 300 jobs in the area. The funding was awarded to American Refining Group Inc. to rehabilitate 3,700 feet of track and to add new loading racks for the refinery. The total project cost is more than $6 million.

According to ARG officials, the project will allow the company to safely handle an estimated 10,000 rail cars and will help remove 40,000 trucks from state and local highways. The grant is part of a state investment of more than $18 million in freight-rail infrastructure projects across the Commonwealth.

Is there anyone near Coudersport to Port Allegany processing deer this year?

This is indeed wonderful news! To hear that we are revitalizing and putting to good use the rail system, and getting that many trucks off our highways is the best Christmas present ever!
There is so much bad news coming out of Harrisburg these days. It is wonderful to get such good news.
