Game Dealer's Licence

The Regulatory Reform (Game) Order 2007 amended the Game Act 1831 and repealed the Game Licences Act 1860. This means that:

  • it is no longer necessary to hold a game licence in order to take or kill game
  • it is no longer necessary to hold a 'local' licence (issued by the Council) and an 'excise' licence (issued by the Post Office) in order to deal in game
  • there are no longer restrictions on dealing in game birds and venison during the close season, i.e. game may be sold by everyone all year round provided that the animal in question was lawfully killed
