I have a friend about 20 miles from me whose female GP had four pups this week. I am going to buy one of the female pups. Our bale has been a wonderful help patrolling our pens. There are three more. They could be weened at Christmas and would make nice presents. They are in eastern Indiana. Contact Jim ward 765-265-6913. Both parents were in the pens with deer but are currently in with sheep. I do not know his asking price. Jim is a great person.

Oh good. A chance for me to show off Bennett now, lol. Here is a pic my sister took of him last week, I love this one. He is doing well with the deer. But with bucks knocking antlers all night long, his barking is non stop right now, lol.

Put him in with them and the knocking will likely stop. I just put "Moose"our male GP in with the ten stocker bucks we have left with horns. He won't let them fight. I was starting to worry a doe nearby may cycle soon and cause some real fighting. I can guarantee there will be no real fighting. Moose is great!

Would love to drive down and get one. Can you get prices on them sometime? *Maybe pick up when going to NADEFA. * *Question...Will the antlered bucks not hurt a young dog if they get wound up!

Only in confined tight space will a buck chose to fight a GP. We had a very mean bottle fed breeder buck that would snap fence post when we ran deer down the alley past him. Dad could never enter his pen before we got Moose. Moose would stay right beside Dad in that pen when he was doing chores. I no longer worry about predators or Dad getting hurt. The buck always respected the dog and kept his distance even when his doe were in heat. You have to lock the dog up if you are working deer. They try to help but cause problems. I got Moose for Dad for Christmas when he was about 6 weeks old. I enclosed underneath one of our feeders that has a roof over it. I put straw underneath it and put Little Moose under there. He would not come out for about 3 days. His feed and water I put under his shelter. The bucks became more and more curious about him. They had to eat out of the feeder he was under. Soon he was licking noses with every one of them. He has been in the deer pens for a couple years now.

Mike

I will find out what he is asking for one.

I would give Jim a call. I believe there are both male and female pups. I spoke for one female but I am nearly sure he has another.

Mike. Excellent choice to make the purchase. I bought mine in July, and I can't say enough good things about him. He has been with my bottlefeds since I bought him. I have introduced him a little to each pen so far. He has no desire to chase deer, so when he's put with them the deer naturally are curious what the big white thing is in the pen and the proceed to sniff him. It does not take the deer long to adjust. Bennett barks at raccoons, cats, other deer, pretty much anything sneaking around the outside of the pen. Once time back in September he started barking at 4 am and wouldn't stop, he was getting me angry, lol. So I went out at daybreak and found 2 of my 200" stockers stuck in an alleyway and panicking because they tore down a section of fence during the night and got themselves stuck in the alley, Bennett was trying to tell me sooner, but I was lazy and ignored his efforts. I currently have him patrolling the outside of all the pens all night. He makes me feel so secure, but I am going to do as Jonathan suggested and put him with the bucks.

He sure loves this November weather. The cooler the better, lol.

So buy with confidence Mike, I doubt you'll have a single regret. They are great watchdogs, but still very sweet toward people and children, my one year old niece loves to play with Bennett.

That sounds great Matt but i have to worry about yote's around here. We hear them on the 700 acres about every night and they do come out behind the back pens. Now will these guys put the run on them if they are on the outside of the pens and then not find their way home? *Also we have like 7 pens that are all hppked together by gates to separate everybody. How do you get the dog to patrol all the pens say in case the yotes dug in say in the back pen? *I thought maybe a doggie door where he could bang into it and get into the next pen and so on but as big as they are and the deer watching the deer my catch on and use the door also! lol

For the first time, my breeder buck attacked my GP today. *They were both in the alleyway and the buck had just finished breeding a doe. *They have lived *together for almost 2 years but this is the first time he has shown this kind of behavior. *However, has never had does with him this time of the year. *On a side note, he also wanted to get me and has never done that before either. *


*


How long should I expect the buck to be at the height of his aggressiveness? *

On a brighter note,it appears "Maggie" got away unscathed. *She also barked and stood up for herself which is out of character for a GP. Usually, they show submissiveness but she must have sensed the seriousness of her situation.

When in an alley they will attack the dog. I doubt in the pen he would be that aggressive. Our GP has been attacked in our alley because of the confined area. I would never put the dog into a confined area such as an alley or corral with any of my deer bucks or doe. They are only in open pens where they can respect each other's space. Even an aggressive buck will not follow the dog into a confined area. The dog may walk into a situation though where an aggressive buck may feel a bit cornered.
