I love deer, and watching them. Pretty cool to make a nice livelyhood out of doing that I think. Though high fence hunting is not for me, or FS either, (as he hunts the other side). Supplying for the demand of it, is work that many of us might enjoy. Though no doubt dealing with all the rules and regulations may be a real pain. Nothing wrong with having a nice gig that you enjoy doing, and pays well.

Thanks for the new pictures! Keep em coming. Cool to see what selective breeding turns out. 

You don’t know how right you really are. To be able to live with these animals is really a blessing. Crazy how every one is always different

There is always a few in every crowd. Some never see the good side of things I guess. 

Final push. 

Figured I would throw a couple pic's up in case a few were bored tonight. 3/4 Texas yearling on his way to earning a pen full of strange this fall and a 2yr old that will throw some numbers.     S

Do you ever get some ornery deer that just need to be “asked to leave” prior to them achieving their full potential?
They seem like such a docile animal (The rut must be insane to watch inside the pen) the it is hard for me to imagine one or two really “going postal”

Like most other animals there is a pecking order and they live by it. It’s usually the young yearlings  that do all the fighting. Put a 2-3yr old in the pen of yearlings and he keeps them in line.    Also anyone that does not leave any givin year get their headgear removed so when they do get after each other during the year there is no death from sticking each other. They just push each other with whatever bases I leave on their heads. But they will battle till one gives the head banging shoving match.

that black plastic fence looks low. They cant jump that?

They have.  That’s just the handling facility so they get ran right back thru.  Only happened a couple times in all these years. And that’s only 6ft.

Sounds like a fun job for sure. Do you ever let people tour your facility?  I'd love to if I'm ever in the area. 

Always people stopping in. Especially when I put the bucks up front near the road. Shocked there has been no wrecks yet with all the rubbernecking.

Well I definitely don’t lose sleep over it. It is just not hunting. Should be Advertised as shooting of genetically modified livestock in a cage. But it does make real hunting look bad. Everything nowadays just caters to lazy people. And I’m not bashing him personally, he’s taking advantage of a legal market for it. Shouldn’t be legal IMO.

If I ever started a farm like this, I will have to quit deer hunting..Just wont be able to the see the wild ones same way.

 Won’t ever happen to a real sportsman as far as quitting hunting.  It no doubt has changed my hunting as far as size of deer I will kill.

Actually i think captive deer are considered livestock in NYS, i might be wrong,

You are Spot On.  And all the benefits of farming any other livestock comes along with it.  Win Win!

  Everything nowadays?  After 23 years I would have to say you are a tad off on your estimation.

I agree, just that today I am lucky to see a nice buck every 2-3yrs and that maybe pushing 120 at best. If I have them in my yard of that caliber , allowing me to make a living; it would certainly raise the bar.

Looking good.  Do you have good/bad years?  Or is each relatively the same since you’re controlling most factors?

Truthfully the only difference in years is the difference in doe and buck fawns. And those of course spell out your bottom line for the year. If you can average 20-30 buck fawns a year and continue that pace and the market continues to go at 3 to 7 grand each the good/bad factor is the bottom line.  Now there are bad years as far as luck if you lose animals to sickness or say yotes harassing some and they jump into fences or such and break legs or necks.                   The good is always there in the lifestyle and freedom of life everyday to decide what your day will consist of.   To be able to have everyday of hunting seasons off or taking a week or two vacation whenever the need arises can’t be beat.   It’s nothing like raising most other livestock where one is locked down to the farm.
