South Dakota Sportsmen Against Hunger

The mission of South Dakota Sportsmen Against Hunger is to encourage and facilitate donation of wild game meat to needy people in South Dakota.

GOOSE PROCESSORS FOR EARLY FALL CANADA GOOSE SEASON SEPTEMBER 1 - 21, 2018

NOTE: Hunters should contact a processor ahead of time to find out location and business hours. Also refer to processor map. Deadline for delivering donated geese to a processor is September 21.

Also, Federal regulations stipulate that the head or one fully feathered wing remain attached to each bird at all times while being transported from the place where harvested until they have arrived at the personal home of the hunter or a processing facility.

However, if harvested geese cannot be donated the day they are harvested, they can be taken to the hunter's home for cleaning and the edible parts then delivered by the hunter to a processor for donation at a later time without evidence of species being attached to the edible meat.

Nonresidents of South Dakota MAY NOT reduce a Canada Goose to edible parts during the Early Fall Canada Goose Season unless those parts retain a fully feathered and attached wing or head.
