You are right to a certain extent, as I am an AW and certainly wouldn't expect to see anything as I described in my OP during a DSC 2 gralloch.
I take much personal pride in my own carcass handling and do my utmost to keep everything as clean and hygienic as possible whilst the carcass is in my care. What then annoys me, is how I see the carcass make the rest of its journey towards the plate. The way even the 'reputable' game dealers treat the carcass seems to make my efforts futile. I dread to think how some of the lesser operatives treat them!
I think what concerns me most, is that any comeback from a mistreated carcass could come back to me as it is my name on the tag. It hasn't happened yet thankfully.MS
Once you have sold the carcass and the game dealer has accepted it, then responsibility has passed to him...
