    Pretty sure it is illegal to sell or barter wild venison or any part of it...ie velvet.


    Maybe pop down to your local f + c shop (if run by Asians) and ask them to make an offer.

    Find your local deer farmer, weigh it, put it in with his lot, PGG Wrightsons buyer [or maybe some other Co rep] comes out, takes velvet away and weighs and grades it, cheque back to seller [your local deer farmer] a few weeks later, and he passes on some money to you. Easy peasy! Approx $100 - $120 per kg at the moment depending on grade.
