Tom, that was my original question. *Not only a sister but also it's own mother. *Seems most say give it a try and see what happens if they are not already line bred. *Keep the good ones and cull *the rest.

While you are increasing the likelihood of heritability of a desired antler trait, you are also doubling any genetic weakness of disease. Build the doe and out cross her to the buck you desire because she probably will not age well.

There is are two real good book written by bob whele called snakefoot making a champion it goes in pretty good detail about line breeding and inbreeding and how through a disciplined breeding program you can produce what you want. It is a good read and I think will help anyone out. It is primarily about dogs but Bob also was involved with breeding milking cows with superior milk production and chickens that consistently lay more eggs he also used his line breeding program in some great race horses.
