You are free to change game dealers, but you must make sure you have adequate arrangements for your game before the season.
You will have to discuss this with individual game dealers but those outside of the National Game Dealers Association have not stated they are not taking lead shot game. This is likely to change over time so please talk to your game dealer.
Unfortunately, this will not be an excuse you may need to purchase a new gun. Talk to your gunsmith.
You should contact your game dealer to discuss their requirements for the coming seasons.
You can supply lead shot game this year although it is a good time to start the move over to non-lead shot game. Please note that some game dealers have already stated they will not accept venison shot with lead from 1st August 2021 so please contact them to discuss their position.
They will not be accepting lead shot game as from the 1st July 2022 although it should be noted that some game dealers have already announced they will not take lead shot deer from 1st August 2021.
