New Hampshire U.S. Rep. Annie Kuster says hunters who donate wild game to food banks should be eligible for a tax deduction to cover the costs of processing.

The bill she's introduced with U.S. Rep. Don Young of Alaska also would provide tax credits for processors who take part in charitable donation programs, and protect against the use of spoiled meat for charitable donations.

Currently, New Hampshire hunters who donate wild game to the New Hampshire Food Bank can have their meat processed for free at Lemay & Sons Beef in Goffstown. However, hunters who can't travel all the way to Goffstown, like some of those who live in the North Country, or those have their meat processed out of state don't have that option.
