Guide to Good Game Handling

Guide to good game handlingOne of the Code of Good Shooting Practice's five golden rules is that game is food and must always be treated as such. The Code outlines basic principles to ensure the correct handling of any shot game birds. This additional guide gives further advice of practical steps and guidance to ensure that game is always supplied to the end user in the best condition and that all relevant food hygiene regulations are followed.

The legal requirements will differ depending upon who the end user is, i.e. if it is consumed by the person who shoots it, their family or if sold. Those who supply game to third parties are strongly advised to read the Wild Game Guide, which explains these legal requirements in more detail.
