Smile Farming Deer for Market

Hey everyone, Iím a recent Auburn graduate thatís contemplating my next steps in life. I always told myself once I got through school I would farm. But now Iím finally out Iím having a hard time deciding want I would like to raise and produce. Does anyone in Alabama raise deer for market much like we do cows? Any successful stories? I know everyone either does shooters or breeders but what about opening up a market for meat?

you don't get enough meat from a whitetail to justify the feed cost

We would have to start breeding for feed efficiency.
