Ive been called to cull some Fallow this weekend but the landowners wants so much per pound for the meat,I called a well known game dealer today to see what they were paying,the call went something like this
"good morning can you tell me what your paying for Fallow"
"were paying £3 per kilo neck or head shot"
"oh I see what about chest shot"
"depends on the damage to the saddle"
"well a good chest heart and lung shot isn't going to damage the saddle"
"well we will pay £2.75 for clean chest shot and deduct any damage"
now my problem is how can you argue the damage once they have been collected.I don't have a problem with head or neck shots but it seems the dealers are taking the urine with the prices.especially when the ribs are no good them anyway
