EVANSVILLE, Ind. — Bass Pro Shops® locations in Harrisburg, Nashville, Charlotte and Clarksville will host the Third Annual Fred Bear Sportsman’s Club Shoot for the Hungry family fun-shoots.
Bear® Archery, which partners in the archery shoots, said all proceeds from the events will be used to process venison donated by local hunter feeding the hungry organizations. Last year the Shoot for the Hungry archery fun-shoots, held at Bass Pro Shops® locations in Harrisburg, Nashville, Clarksville and Charlotte over four weekends, raised a record $33,800 or enough to process some 135,000 venison meals to feed local individuals and families in need.
The following is the schedule released for this year’s Shoot for the Hungry events:
Bass Pro Shops® Nashville—August 10-12
Bass Pro Shops® Charlotte—August 10-12
Bass Pro Shops® Clarksville—August 10-12
Bass Pro Shops® Harrisburg—September 7-9
In addition to raising money to process the venison that will be donated this hunting season by local hunters feeding the hungry organizations, dozens of prizes will also be given away at each location.
Several local hunters feeding the hungry organizations will also be participating in the Fred Bear Sportsman’s Club events.
Donated venison provides families a high-protein, low-fat supplement vital to a healthy diet. Also, venison donated to soup kitchens lowers food costs and puts more meat on the table at a critical time of the year.
