An option is Synchronize the doe -1 per day USE! Folligon pmsg not just CDR's. Only put one per day into his pen. Hold the doe until the 60-62 hour mark after Cdr is pulled & pmsg is given before putting the doe into the pen if you want more buck fawns. The male semen loses motility much faster after it is ejaculated than the female cells. If the ejaculation is fresh closer to when the doe ovulates chances are better buck fawns will be conceived. Otherwise it depends on the size of the breeding pen and wether or not the doe are healthy and parasite free. In a small breeding pen a yearling would do fine pasture breeding a dozen healthy doe and remain in good condition to began growth of his second rack.

Good luck

Would love some more input on this. What is considered a small pen? 1/2 acer? Love to hear from anybody who has used a yearling to breed and your results.

  NJ, deer are kept in PA
I have 2 pens, about.75 acres each. Back half of each pen is wooded and the front half is pasture. I have 14 grown deer along with 4 fawns. I bred with a yearling last year. Out of 3 does, one being the yearlings mom, he bred the 2 that arent related to him. One yearling doe that he bred had 2 buck fawns and a doe, the other one had 1 buck and 1 doe fawn

I have a yearling out of Jake the dream buck over easy does it that pasture bred 18 does last year in a 5 acre pen. At 2 this year he is 25 inches wide, completely typical 12 point that is going to break 200 inches. He was also born June 6. He did get ran down to skin and bones but he recovered just fine.

Soaring Eagle bred 20 does as a yearling and scored 273@2 the next year... Every deer is different.

Josh, I agree they can all be very different. I had used yearlings twice. Each with 5 does each time. One buck was a typical 5x5 that scored about 120". He did not do well. He was thin and only scored 138" the following year. His offspring was OK however. I believe one of his buck offspring scored 250"+ at 2. Then 2 or 3 years ago I used a 184" yearling on 5 does. He was fat and healthy the next summer and grew to 310".

How likely is this years buck fawn to breed another this years fawn if he's left with them through December?

If you "don't" want him to, then rest assured he will breed 100%......

Haha Yeah Todd that's my luck for sure!* I've got one buck fawn from my AI program this year and I plan on putting him with 11 doe fawns and putting my other buck fawns in a separate pen.* I kept all of them together last year BUT a bunch got sick late winter and I gave them all Dex so I don't know if any were breed and aborted or none got breed.* We had seen a button buck mount a couple of them but no fawns came of it.* I've got one doe that was the product of a button buck breeding another fawn so I know it happens just curious if it's a 10%, 25% thing or 50/50.

IF the fawn is big enough he can breed yrling doe as well as adult. I put a BIG fawn in with a few last yr and he bred other fawns as well as 2 an adult. BUT..he was as big as a yrling doe at 5 mo's old. I was ac tually going to start another thread on this subject
