My alarm was set for 3:45. I was due to get up and meet deer stalker Alastair at local game-meat butcher Vicars Game. I arrived and we promptly got to work. With dozens of deliveries lined up for the day ahead, Alastair started the process of preparing the meat and filing the paperwork for the Michelin starred clients. At Vicars Game, he wraps the deer carcasses in muslin and tags them based on weight and client, all before 6am when he sets out for a day of sales.
