Game dealing licence

Coronavirus (COVID-19): latest information about licences and registration.

​​​​​The Regulatory Reform (Game) (England and Wales) Order 2007 has removed restrictions for those shooting and dealing in game.

New regulations to reform game licensing in England and Wales came into force on 1 August 2007 and have:

  • Removed the restriction on dealing in game birds and venison during the close season. This means that any person will be allowed to sell game and venison all year round, provided the animals in question were only killed in the open season
  • Removed the requirement for a licence to kill or take game; and
  • Removed the requirement for 2 licences for game dealers to sell game

This authority is under a duty to protect the public funds it administers, and to this end may use the information you provide on any application form for the prevention and detection of fraud. It may also share this information with other bodies responsible for auditing or administering public funds for these purposes.
