default Continuation of discussion of Muntjac deer from Zoe's root storing thread

Post by Wilhelm Von Rhomboid on 26th November 2010, 7:15 pm

So as not pollute Zoe's thread with further 'chat', I have started a new thread to reply to CH

If you find muntjac good eating, there's no shortage round here. We are, of course, only a few miles from Woburn estate, who are responsible for introducing them in the first place. You scarcely need bait - when I was out running the other day I passed one on a track in the wood - within about four or five metres, and it hardly bothered to move.

(Sorry to drift BTW)

Mmmm.... muntjac.

Yes they are fine eating.

You need two or three of course because they are so wee, but it sounds like quantity is not an issue. Lucky you.
I still need to sort out a regular inexpensive supply of venison. My original contact here unfortunately had a heart attack and hunts much less now, and my next regular source has just moved abroad for 3 years, and I have not the time or money to apply for the requisite permissions and licences and actually get out there and shoot.

I had to laugh today. I drove past one field, full of men with dogs and guns standing around. At the other side of the road the field had tens of pheasant grazing, and as I watched a deer ran across it. All just safely out of range. Perhaps they are not so dumb after all ...

Having eaten pan fried (and very fresh !) Muntjac with leeks at Wimpole, I can now vouch that they are indeed very fine eating !

Presumably that's not something you can buy in the shops? We used to have a butcher which was supposed to sell rare breeds, but it was more the case that they sold named varieties of pig and beef (I mean Gloucester Old Spot, rather than the pig being called Daisy!!) I didn't ever see Muntjac in there.

Is wild (or feral) deer classed as game? I don't know if it still the case but butchers used to have to have a licence to sell game. Our local butcher had 2 shops - one with a game licence & one without. If I wanted rabbit he would bring it up from the licenced shop & slip it to me 'under the counter'.
