From 1 August 2007, new regulations removed existing licensing requirements for dealing in game.
This means that you no longer have to hold a local authority licence or an excise licence in order to deal in game.
Restrictions on dealing in game birds and venison during the close season will no longer apply. This means that any person will be allowed to sell game and venison all year round provided the animals in question were lawfully killed.
