The field staff members of Huntonly.com - a website created and managed by hunters as a resource for the hunting community - have donated 15 deer to Maryland's Farmers and Hunters Feeding The Hungry (FHFH) program. The deer were harvested throughout Southern Maryland during Maryland's deer hunting season.


Through the FHFH program, farmers and hunters deliver their legally harvested deer or other big game to a participating meat processor. The meat is processed, packaged and frozen and made available to local food banks at no charge. According to FHFH, one deer can provide 200 meals.

“When we learned about this program, the field staff at Huntonly.com and two other area businesses - Fred's Sporting Goods and Creative Whitetails Taxidermy - decided to get involved. With today's economy, we can only imagine there is more of a need this year than ever before. We felt inclined to lend a hand to our community, and what better way to do that than through a sport we enjoy?” said Steve Johnson of Huntonly.com. The 15 deer donated to FHFH by Huntonly.com will provide over 3,000 meals to people in the local community.

Huntonly.com is continuing its charitable efforts and will be hosting a fundraiser on Saturday, December 6 at Scott's Bar in Welcome, MD. “Hunter Palooza” will begin at 7 p.m., attendees can enjoy food and drink and participate in a raffles for a variety of hunting gear including a H&R Ultra Slug Gun, donated by Freds Sports of Waldorf, MD. Proceeds from the raffles will benefit a local charity (to be determined.) *Must be 21 to Attend*

Huntonly.com is looking for donations of raffle items. 100% of proceeds will be donated to local charity. For more information on huntonly.com, its participation in the FHFH program or its charity fundraiser, email info@huntonly.com.
