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.

Deer and Antelope Processing Fees For 2020


-Donated deer and elk harvested west of the Missouri River need to be tested for Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) before being processed. See Donated Deer CWD Testing on this website for details on the CWD testing procedure for donated deer and elk. If hunters want to collect tissue samples themselves for CWD testing of their deer or elk, CWD testing kits are available at GFP Regional and District Offices.

-Donated deer harvested east of the Missouri River do not need to be tested for CWD.

-The processing fee shown for antlerless deer and doe/fawn antelope is the cost to the hunter in addition to a processing certificate completed by the hunter and given to the processor.

-The processing fee shown for buck deer and buck antelope is the total cost of processing which has to be paid by the hunter. The processing fee for any donated elk would also need to be paid by the hunter.

-Please call a processor prior to delivery of game to be certain of location, business hours, and fees. (See also processor map.)
