New to Deer Farm

Hi, I'm new to deer farming. I'm planning on breeding for the stocker market. My question is, what is everyone's opinions on DNA registering the herd if this is the goal?

No need for dna if they are going to be hunted

it is important to DNA your bucks and does to cull the herd....if a doe produces a sub par buck once or twice, you will want to sell her. Also you don't want to be line breeding too tightly, but tight is fine.
