How many deer does everyone else put in pens and how big are pens...our pens are 350'x125'

Each and have around 10-12 deer in each but by end of summer get extremely muddy. We are planning on building more pens but would like to see what you guys did for this problem...

My pens are 150 X 300 and I like to run about 8 deer per pen I have had more at times but I find I have a lot less issues when I put 8

If you have holes in your pen that the deer turn into ponds especially in the corners, I have a friend that cut trees for a living and he bring me wood chips I put that in the holes and it works great dry up a hole instantly.

Thanks for the help guys.... Maybe I just need more pens with less deer.... Kentucky is a wet soggy place even on hills.

It means you are going to be promoted.

It means you are going to be promoted.
When your personal life is gone, remember to notify me, it means you are going to be promoted.
I very much agree with this sentence, life and work, we choose to work because of life, and work makes us neglect life. When you want to get promoted, you have to sacrifice more of your private time to work.
Choice is a very interesting thing, and when you make a choice, it also means that you will lose something very pity.

I only put about 8 deer in mine. They do get muddy but by the end of summer they seem to be playing in the mud and enjoying themselves. It seems that they try to get cooled off on those hot days. I tried to hire but they said the deer would just eat up the grass.
