Just wanted to say hello to everyone. I'm new to this forum and the reason I joined is myself and my family are wanting/working towards starting a small deer farm. I'm looking forward to chatting with and definitly learning from the members here. We are located in East-Central Minnesota and have been helping/learning with our neighbor who has a 2 year old doe. My family (wife and 4 children) are very excited to eventually be "deer farmers". Any thoughts, information, suggestions are and will be very welcomed.

Thanks, and Hello!!!

Congrats and i wish you luck...Once you catch the bug yur life will never be the same..Right now things are a struggle in the deer world but just learn,learn,learn and you will be fine.My advice would be start small and grow..Get the best bloodline you can afford or a line that you like the looks of and go.Just dont start to big trust me i have only been in for a year and it will get over bearing at times and you will have trouble.I can also say that there has not been one time that i needed help and it was not here on this site.The people are great,they will help and they know their stuff.Oh and by the way i dont think they make a pill that will get this bug out of yur system. Welcome!!

Go & visit, visit, visit & visit again farms that are up & running. That is the best advice to give someone getting in the business.

Hi Jim,

There is a lot of deer farms to visit in Minnesota. Here is a list of them from the MN Deer Breeders Association. I put it at the bottom of my post. I would become a member if I was you, there are so many benefits. Hey Susan, I just looked at the members Directory and my farm's name is spelled wrong. You got Vicking Whitetails instead of Viking Whitetails, can you change it Susan...Thanks

Good Luck Jim
