I finished my breeding facility earlier this week and put CIDR's in today. It sure is nice not to have to dart a deer three times to breed. We were able to put CIDR's in 20 does in about an hour.

Brett, be sure and watch your time when you pull cidir's. Some people start pulling them faster than they put them in. Then if they run in a snag while AI ing their time start to drag out longer & longer. Just saying you will need to pace your pulling to try to match how long you think it will take to breed each deer.

Wayne is exactly right, it only takes 30 or so seconds to pull the CIDR's. You should plan on 4 minutes per animal for pulling the CIDRs. It will make things a lot less stressful when doing the AI. Good luck!
