Both of these deer are 2 year olds. Both the same father but different mothers. The first buck has 4 sisters and his mother at my place. The second buck has no siblings at all.

My question is should I breed for the firsts looks as he will breed 4 sisters and his mother and hopefully get the same very clean frame with lots of points on it.

Or should I breed the second who has no relation at all but throws a few more points and odd stuff for a higher score??

Just looking for opinions. Thanks guys.


Also....the 4 sibling doe to the first buck all have the same mom and dad as the buck.

Thanks in advance for any opinions.

Breed the one not related. They are too close to breed.

Just curious as to what I would/could expect from breeding either of them? What traits or features would I get? What would be the negatives of breeding that close?

The only way to better predict all that is to study the pedigrees of everything involved. And also have knowledge of previous actions by those pedigreed animals. Line breeding is a bit of an art.
