If a person is buying and moving them twice instead of once there is too much RISK, as in death of the animal. That's why it's not done very often.

I don't know everything and don't claim to, but I know this much by being in the industry and educating myself constantly every day.

I hope I'm not coming across to know everything. I am just on the outside looking in and looking at things as black and white. I know its not always that simple either. I joined this forum along time ago to learn as much as I can about the industry. I have even contemplated getting in it as a farmer. First when prices were high, then when the bottom fell out and here again I'm thinking about it again. Really I don't know why anyone in their right mind would get into it with its current situations in the states. Gov could put a lot of people in the poor house real quick. *

You've got that right. I wouldn't recommend anyone getting in right now.

Cervid: mule deer,whitetail,elk,goats,bighorn & stone sheep & Alaskan dahl sheep
With boarders closing and more and more States doing that people like me who can't harvest deer in their State and depend on other States to allow importation of deer and elk I can't survive as a business. I have been forced to be only be a hobby in the State of Montana and have reduced my animal numbers to really be just that. As we all know we do raise these animals because we love them and like to watch them. But like any animal we raise for food we have to be able to sell them to stay in business. In Montana when we had 160 farms and then in one day we were all out of business because our State said we couldn't harvest them behind an eight foot fence. We now have 10 people who keep them for just a hobby. We are in the process of reducing our animals into a hobby level for personal entertainment as I don't see this industry with a bright future if we can't get the DNR and over testing under control and boarders open.

The market as with any market will level off.* The smart ones or ones who guess right will capitalize and others will lose as with any market.* Closed borders will benefit the producer and hunting preserves both but at different times.* I have bought deer since 1999 and Right now there are more deer and bigger deer available than ever before.* The hunt prices are lower than ever before.* Everyone has to find their own niche and skim through the bad years and capitalize on the good ones.* If everyone made a bunch of money every year everyone would quit their job and get into this industry.* On a side note.* From my experience the EHD vaccine is a scam.* Just a money making tool for developers.* Over the years I have seen so many deer vaccinated, boosted and vaccinated only to succumb to EHD.* I am a firm believer that fogging is the only way to combat the issues.
