Thread: Game dealer deductions

    Game dealer deductions

    I have a shoulder shot red deer I am considering taking to the game dealers, the entry broke the bone between the elbow and the shoulder blade and the exit was more or less the same place on the far side without touching the bone, so a low shoulder shot.

    How much to dealers typically deduct for meat damage?

    Nothing if they do take it somewhere else

    5 or 6 lbs in wieght depending on how much damage there is to the shoulder would be resonable, if you do not use the dealer every week.

    If you don't put many beasts through the gamedealer then you are in his hands a bit. I agree two prices, one for head shot park deer (2.50/kg at present) and another for chest shot park and wild deer (2.10/kg) I do not sell saddle damaged deer as I cut these in house so that I can drive a better deal with the dealers and not give them any excuse to knock me back. Normally a shoulder shot deer should not incur any reduction but its up to the individual to agree a deal. JC

    deductions

    Guys

    We as a game dealers do not make deductions for shoulder shots, is a beast were saddled then we have in the past done so, but to be honest most of the stalkers that we take in from on a regular basis I just take the rough with the smooth & it all irons out in the long run!

    As always its no so much the shot damage but more the bloody mess they make of them afterwards!

    I doubt it!! I was up at the dealers last weekend and some of the carcasses in there were a mess - looked like the gralloch had been by a blind man on a galloping horse (using a chainsaw)!! I knew mine weren't the neatest but I'll never worry again!!

    Field Dressing

    Gents

    No I was not having a laugh!

    Field dressing a carcas & ending up with a decent end result is not rocket Science (there are enough bloody videos on the market) !

    We still have some poor old beasts in a real state offered to us & to be honest my 13 year old daughter could make a better bloody job of it.

    Sorry to go off on one but in this day & age it just should not be still happening-that bodied are left full of rumen content, leaf debris & with the tracts still in-oosing yet more crap into the body, add a bit of fly blow & we then have a full set!

    Anyone that holds a Lantra number should just not be offering deer like this for sale-but I assure you they do!

    gamedealer reductions

    the gamedealer i use deducts 1 kilo for shoulder shot roe. on the subject of carcass preperation, i like to think my crcasses are decent when they get to the dealer. however some gamedealers seem to expect the carcass to resemble an animal that has been walked in to a slaughterhouse and killed with a captive bolt gun. remember ithe initial gralloch is carried out in the field. no offence lee, but my gamedealer moans about everything, not just venison, he has a go at rabbits, pigeons, pheasants etc. to whitch my usual reply is - theve been shot for gods sake !! ok rant over
