He has some mass roger. In my opinion, I would sacrifice some width and have a good heavy racked deer. Nice buck


Thank you for looking and for the kind words.

I agree red, I would take mass like that any day, even if it means I'd have to lose a few inches of width. Beautiful deer Rodger.

Thank you Antlershed.

We always want the complete package you know. I do suspect next year the width comes back again. Sometimes width comes with a sacrifice of mass and or tine length. His daddy is nice and wide this year.

Thank you again guys! It is much appreciated!

So I have been asked by a couple of people about semen from Ruben. I do not have any collected as of now, however I think I will be collecting him this year.


I am interested in two things.


*


1. Who would like some?


2. Would you use it this fall or defer use until another year?


*


I ask this to see how much interest there is in him, and if I should collect before this breeding season, or do it afterwards to obtain the very best quality semen.


As far as price goes, I have given this a lot of thought and decided that in today's market few are looking to add does to their programs. They are instead looking for bucks and maybe a doe or two for the program. Therefore price should be set accordingly so as to be profitable to the buyers. So I will set the price at $500 per straw. I will also have a buy 4 get 1 free offer. These prices will stand until I am either sold out of all but 20 straws of what I get from the collection, or until June 1st 2016.


I want to ensure I have at least 20 straws for my own farm should he die before giving me another collection.


Then in late summer of 2016 I will determine price again based on the look and score AND the current markets at that time.


Last year Ruben was 4 buck to 1 doe fawn. And this year he was 8 bucks to 1 doe fawn. All of course from live breedings.


I prefer emails with any questions or purchases regarding this offer.

Thank you all for looking!

Roger what is Rubens pedigree?

Thanks

OwenI suppose the pedigree would have been a good thing to add now wouldn't it. LOL!

I will also add a pic of him last year at age 2 in fall. And a pic of his father Shadow Man when he was age 2 also.

Ruben won 1st place for 2 year olds at the Whitetails Of Wisconsin banquet last April.

Well look at what came across my radar today. This is a beautiful and big, deep pedigreed one year old buck. I have already committed to semen from him and look forward to using it21704:image21705:image21706:image.

Decided to post a couple pics of one of the boys. Big body so don't assume the rack is small.

These yearlings are owned by Haymarsh Whitetails. They are the only two yearling sons of Ruben in 2015.

These bucks are not high scoring fellas, however at age 2 they have some nice looks to them. These are all Downdraft sons.

Nice Roger. I have a group of two year olds out of a double bred Big Guy son (Two Big) that look real similar. These kinds of bucks will be in high demand over the coming years.

I agree Josh. Too trashy is not going to last. You need a frame that is balanced. Extras for score is good but not crazy stuff.
