  1. So we have Red deer on one of my families ranches... and two of our does did not really care for there baby, so we had to bring both little bucks to the HOME ranch.... This is Teresa and Daniels 1st encounter with a baby deer...

  5. I had to tell Teresa that she cant catch the babies by the neck... because it hurts them... i think she got the idea... but other than that... Teresa is learning to bottle feed them... she calls the deer, "My Baby Deer"

    Quote:Do you raise them for meat? I have seen dear in a pen in Ohio before but I never thought about raising them. I just thought the silly dear jumped into their fence. lol!
     
  7. We dont really raise them for meat... however once in a while we eat one... not offen...

    They are mostly ornamental.
