Hand picked white-tailed deer genetics released over many years
The deer pens are comprised of 38 pens with alleys (all but 1) that lead to the deer handling facility (deer barn). Each deer pen has food, water, and shelter. The deer barn funnels the animals into a series of 7 rooms for sorting. An animal is capable of being pushed into a chute or cradle for hands on needs, de-worming, medicating, vaccinations, antler cut-off, artificial insemination etc. The whitetail herd contains “x” of males and “x” of females that have the codon that make contracting chronic wasting disease a much lower probability. Artificial insemination has been a normal practice each fall for the last 10+ years. Some great genetics are present and continually produce top quality animals for breeding or stocking purposes. Near the manager’s house are fawn rearing pens if bottle raising is needed for the animals in the pens. It has 10 partially covered runs and an equipment shed for storage of necessary supplies.
Pen Reared Animals
~185 whitetails hand picked and bred for many years with many exhibiting the codons for resisting CWD
FAA has a surface use agreement on the property.
