Brownville Deer Pantry Seeking Donations to Fund Upcoming Season
The feeding season is coming up, and The Brownville Deer Pantry is in need.
It's a live stream we can watch for hours, and do. The live stream from The Brownville Deer Pantry features numerous camera angles of deer feeding on oats, feed blocks and acorns. Going into another feeding season, the food pantry is prepping to feed between 150-200 deer every day.
Donations are always welcome to help Richard McMahon keep the deer herd in the area well fed through the winter months. A GoFundMe is live to help fund the deer pantry's 14th season. The money from donations goes to purchase oats, food blocks, apples, and other supplies. The pantry utilizes about 700 pounds of feed per-day.
According to the GoFundMe page, "The oats, apples and feed blocks are purchased locally, supporting Maine businesses. This year we are projecting to need 35 tons of oats. We will be working with a new oats supplier from Sangerville, Maine, enabling us to purchase oats in bulk and utilize the silo this season. All donations go towards the purchase of oats, food blocks, apples, supplies and maintenance."
The troughs at the food pantry will be filled for the first time this season on December 16. The Brownville Deer Pantry's YouTube channel will go live December 16, with six camera angles to watch the various visitors.
