Deer dehorning.... please help!

Hi everyone! I was hoping someone could tell me if you are keeping deer in not so big a space is it a good idea to dehorn them? I would be very grateful for any help in this matter. Thanks very much to take out the time to read my post

Cervid: mule deer,whitetail,elk,goats,bighorn & stone sheep
My answer is that the lessor buck animals in age would be at the mercy of the dominate bucks so I would cut the hard antler off above the burr.

Jack you are too nice.
My answer is deer don't have horns they have antlers. Learn the difference.
