After being successful in obtaining some stalking in the boarders I had to consider what to do with any venison shot. Now I'm not expecting to shoot lots of deer but with two of us there at a time we may get lucky and shoot 4 or 5 animals over a couple days. Now we could take them to a dealer and get £2-20 Kg which would cover the fuel and B+B costs which is OK. Or we could bring them back and butcher them up for friends and family etc which too is ok.
Now this is where my idea comes in. During the warmer months which could be as early as april on the roe or july on the stags it is likely to be warm, too warm to keep carcasses hanging in the trees for a couple days till we travel home. This would mean having to sell to the dealers.
So I am considering buying a mobile chiller/cutting room. This would be used back home as my cutting room/chiller/freezer or could be towed up to the ground and either left there to store animals in till the end of the trip before taking to dealer or bought back with deer in.
What I am wondering is there a Hire market out there for others in this situation or people culling deer who don't have a chiller on site and culling for a few days at a time. Or perhaps have ground a good distance from a dealer and have to drive each day to them in warmer weather. Or would like a cutting room to use for a few days if a number of deer have been shot.
So my question is "Do you think there is any market for this"?
If so what would you be prepared to pay for the facility?
I'd be interested in your views. Thanks.
