Cervid: Whitetail Deer
T-Hat said it. If you have a low number of deer or no facility to handle them in I would look into either buying a breeder/(shooter) or sending your doe to be live bred. With live breeding you are 100% going to take unless there is something wrong with the doe her self. Along the lines of buying a breeder, a breeder to you might be someone else's shooter. No a days you can get some really nice genetic bucks that are heading to the preserve. Also I have seen it every year there are places looking for shooters right around the first of the year. If you wanted to could buy a buck breed with him and then sell him around the first of the year probably for the same or close to the same money you bought him for. That is way cheaper than AI and still diversifies the genetics in your herd.
