Wait until the fall shooter bucks auctions. Watch the shooter bucks sell. When you see a quality clean typical stocker buck sell, approach the owner and ask about buying the bucks mother. Folks generally don't sell these doe because they are the ones that make them money. There will likely be less than five clean typical 200" bucks available in the entire industry for hunters this fall. We aren't selling any doe until the federal CWD standards document is reopened and revised. We do have semen available from sires that have resulted from disciplined typical breedings. Good luck

Another scenario would be to buy two bred doe. Make arrangements to leave them where you bought them until after the next breeding season, and either have them ai'd or live bred on the already established farm.


Very solid plan.

Just remember score pays the bills. In my opinion any buck under 190" is a loss not a break even or profit. Unless it is age two. Then 180" is good yet. And not non-typical at those scores. They better look good.

So you buy the bred does in the fall or winter?

So is it just better to have bucks with a typical base and then some junk and try to get up to the upper 200s? I don't like those bucks that score 500 but don't have any tines or even a main beam if you know what I mean

Grow deer like these two year olds and you will make a profit.
