Hello! Maybe someone could help to understand this verse, from Old Possum Book of Practical Cats (1939), by T. S. Eliot.

For a similar reason, when game is in season
He is found, not at Fox's, but Blimpy's;
He is frequently seen at the gay Stage and Screen
Which is famous for winkles and shrimps.
In the season of venison he gives his ben'son
To the Pothunter's succulent bones;
I couldn't find any meaning for this word, so any suggestion would be useful!!! :)
