I would recommend that you visit as many farms as you can.* Look at their handling system.* Ask those folks what they like the best about their setup and what they would change.* I looked at several different set ups before I built mine.* You can't beat good advice from people that have a handling system that works good.

Jason, feel free to come down to SW Missouri and check out our place. You look like you are on the right track. I am still trying to wrap my head around the corner though. We have 9 boxes setup before the chute. They make a u turn and works pretty well.

Yes, Why the boxes against the side if the chute and system is in the middle. Do the deer go in from the right hand side and get pushed into the boxes or just into the 3 boxes of the system the back out from the left side of the pic? *Looks like a good start though. Just show the deer movement if you could!

I guess what I was thinking is I have two options. I can push them right into the chute or I can open the stall runs. After I run them through drop chute they can go left back in the alley, which I'll add a few more gates in, or go right and into the stalls. Ryanm84 thanks for ur plan. I see ur stalls have doors on the side to release certain deer to aid in separating. I will add some to my stalls. I didn't think of a loading dock either thanks for all the help. Wayne next trip we take to Omaha I'm going to try to swing by.

Ryan,


I'm going to have a different layout in mine, but I will share some similarities.* Could you post some pictures of your sliding door and what you did to accomplish swinging doors that open in or out and don't cost an arm and a leg?*

here are some pics that I have had saved on my computer for a while. This is not mine but after working through my setup I wish I could do something like this. You could even just make the frame work out of 2x4s and save money.

Jason i believe you have the address for Wayne's farm wrong. *I hear his place is a site to see and very deer friendly and real easy on the farmer. *In fact i am still waiting for some pics of a push wall he has set up to move deer down the lane way by himself. Still Waiting......Still Waiting.....Still...

I've looked at about every thread to do with handling systems on here so far and still I have some questions.* I have a couple buck fawns that are a problem and I'm trying to figure out the best resolution before next year.* The two problems are: one lays down as soon as he's in the tunnels and another knows there is a door there so he pawns and pushes at the door. It really makes you want to just grab a cattle prod but who knows how that would pan out.


*


I've seen handling facilities with doors that sweep in so that you could push deer forward and others with guillotines and only a small hole to stick something in and scare deer forward.* I've got doors that sweep in so I can push them forward but if they are turned around knowing there is a door it can turn into a bit of a waiting game.


Do you prefer doors that sweep so that you can push deer forward or doors that sweep?


*


I've seen some with divisions about 8' long leading up to their chute and others that had divisions about every 4'.**


*


Any experience which is easier to move deer forward through?*


*


Also Some have tunnel system that is more like a hallway that is plenty tall enough to walk in yourself and others that don't look even 4' tall..*


*


Is there any benefit to either?*


*


Anyone's Thoughts, Pictures etc would be greatly appreciated.

I have the deerstore book of handling facility plans that I'd sell for half of what it is on the site if anyone is interested.
