This position could be occupied by a “Lesser Lord” or “High Forester”. Seen as early as the 11th Century, The Master of The Venerie was responsible for procuring the “best carcass”of a Hunt – for presentation as trophies. Often a King or Queen would allow the ”choice kill” to go to their most honored Guest. Normally (as part of their payment), The Master Venerie was allowed to keep other portions of the Hunt for “his Table”. Often, The Venerie would sell such “consignments” for money. In other cases, The Venerie might give the leftover “kills” to a Monastery of Nunnery.
