    Not sure I believe the figure of 350,000 culled by 1000 stalkers - that would mean an average of 350 each! Or do they mean professional stalkers?

    Quite interesting to see such an unbiased and balanced article in a national paper for once

    I'm no expert but when Rosemary Shrager was at Amhuinnsuidhe she used to hang her venison for 2 - 3 days.

    I suspect that for a reasonable proportion of "cookery experts" or whatever you want to call them all this stuff about hanging meat for months on end is merely some form of affectation or a weird form of snobbery. If one says he hangs his venison for 2 weeks then the next one has to say his hangs for 4 weeks, no matter what the effect on the meat is. I find venison hung for less than a week mighty fine and no worse than stuff hung for longer plus I have neither the facilities nor the inclination to hang it for any longer.
