    Yep, farmer don't get those prices tho much like buying lamb.

    In Auckland probably fair prices for game meat.
    In southland probably get a whole animal for a box of Piss.
    In the middle somewhere in the middle.

    Dunno about price but best bet would be to hit up your local Homekill ... They usually know who has excess animals that are due for the freezer at good rates

    When I was selling deer for a job they averaged out between $200-$250 a carcass clean shot. I once got $789.00 for one stag, foot shot.
    My old boss got $1025 for a helicopter shot stag in 2005 out of the Waiatoto. A quiet member of this forum shot it. 189kg
    I have seen the price as low as a $1.80kg and as high as $10 for feral venison.

    Yea I'm going to ask the home kill guy as it is a shop as well, wont be surplus though, was thinking what can he buy them for same as beef or lamb

    Not many if any deer farms around here, only one I know of, and I don't think they would want to piss around with a home kill animal

    Yep I live too far north

    Moonhunt the schedule price of venison varies considerably throughout the year with the best time for a deer farmer to sell generally being around September. The value is also relative to the age of the animal. Yearlings are worth the most and the per kilo price adjusts downwards as the animals increase in age. The other factor that influences the value is the weight of the animal as the cost of killing a 50 kilo animal is the same for killing a 90 kilo animal so it is proportionally more expensive to kill a low weight animal.

    Mate if you are after some venison you should let me know when you can get down here. I have just finished my last lot so we could tip over one of my two year olds and split the meat. A half of an animal would be good for me as I have just put a steer in the freezer so don't have much room. Call it evening the score for that pig you got for my grandsons hangi.
