Kinda depends where your market is at. If your not selling doe-fawns like most of us then breed production for the buck fawns. *

Cervid: deer
The younger stock in theory are the deepest and best bred if folks are breeding correctly.

However those bucks are also unproven and pose a risk for that reason.

Sometimes a good looking yearling flops at age 2. Sometimes due to over breeding. Personally if you are worried about next year's antlers dont go over 6 does to a yearling.

Each of those yearlings you have are great looking boys. I myself would consider senen from that one if you offer any for sale!

Jim,

I would forget the idea of buying a breeder buck and just use all three as breeders

All three are nice, but if I had to pick one it would be the 3rd one.

Jim,

Good question. Very nice yearlings. I will probably do as Roger mentioned, and breed a half dozen to this yearling. I am interested in other's responses to your question23797:image.jpeg]

They will scream typical all day long and then when you raise a great looking clean buck its value goes down because he has no inches to make a score. Its tough to sell females any longer because we all have pretty good deer. Breed for frame and inches is what i do. Width comes with frame in most cases.*

What happened to that buck you were going to sell last year and then decided to keep?* I'd breed with him if you still have him.* He was a really nice typical.

Do you have pedigrees on those yearlings?* Love the mass and clean brows on the first one.* But if only could use one it would probably be the second one. The third looks like he will have the most extras on his brows and my least favorite frame shape.

Jim, I personally like the look of the first one. How can you go wrong with a frame like that at a young age?? If you want to breed a large number of your does to a single yearling I strongly suggest going to route of AI'ing with fresh semen that hasn't been frozen. You should be able to achieve AI success rates above 80% going that route..... Great looking trio of bucks you have there, that is a hard decision no matter what breeder you are. If you need help with AI I am planning a quick shot into IA to help AI on a farm in early November.

I dont personally collect semen and pack straws Jim. I've AI'd with fresh semen before though that someone else collected and packed.*
