    Beasts Shot

    I know a lot of lads on here take all their shot game to game dealers and some take them round to the loacal butcher for sale ,which they are entitled to do as a trained hunter.

    I am also aware that some lads grind the lot up even best cuts and make venison custards and widows memories out of them for home consumption.

    What do most of you do with yours

    Cap, Venison Custards

    I have a sharing arrangement with most of the owners of my permissions, they have the choice of what venison they want and I have the rest. A lot goes to neighbours of my permissions, for public relations etc. Very occassionally i have had a real surplus, just after Christmas I had 5 fallow in a fortnight, and I butchered, weighed, bagged and sold it myself locally. My nearest game dealer is not a good payer for venison, so i have developed other outlets, a couple of restaurants and some pubs being my main ones.

    I do cook with it but, as yet, have never knowingly produced a custard

    Blindness to suffering is an inherent consequence of natural selection. Nature is neither kind nor cruel but fiercely indifferent.

    I don't sell mine. I take them home and butcher them myself. I'm no pro but the legs get split up into managable joints, the fillets are removed and the rest is minced for burgers, sausages and for use in chillies etc. It's really not that hard to bone out the cuts and tie them into nice little joints.

    It takes me a lot longer than it would take a butcher to do and I have no doubt it's not as neat, but I've never had a complaint from anyone who eats with me. I can't keep up with the requests from friends for roasting joints and the mince and fillets are my favourite bits.

    I don't think I can sell them as I don't have the required paperwork? I've been mentored through the process but for the number I shoot it's not worth the bother. I have no wish to shoot more than I can eat or give away.

    Mine go to the game dealer, unlike England in Scotland it is illegal to sell venison to anyone other than a registered venison dealer

    You cant sell or even give processed venison to anyone in this country without proper approved larder facilities in this country either
