Thread: Venison prices

  1. #1

    Venison prices

    I am being told of some dealers paying in excess of 5 a kilo for head shot red deer, 4.60 /kg for chest shot red, and 3.95 /kg for fallow. When I push the suppliers of this info for details of which game dealers are paying the above amounts I get the brush off. This leads me to think they are talking ********.

    How about a bit of transparency amongst SD members.... Which dealers in which locality are paying what price for venison ?

    getting 2.80kg for fallow - head or chest as long as the entry & exit haven't damaged anything apart from the ribs? Gone up 30p per kg from last season?

    2 per Kg at the dealer in the jacket regardless of where shot but a game butcher local will pay 3 per Kg out of the Jacket.All species.
    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position

    Locally I get 1 a lb for Roe, 1.50 a lb for Fallow & 5 a carcass for muntjac. There is a price for Red & Sika but I have none on my permissions so took not notice sorry.
    This is in the fur and head or chest shot.
    If a wolf can take down a deer from either flank, does that make him bambidextrous?
