Sounds exactly like raising livestock to me. I'm totally against it.

I don't see anything about releasing them into the wild. I think that would be illegal just about anywhere.
They wouldn't waste the $ to release them plus, it's illegal at least in PA but probably nation wide via diseases.

those deer are breeder deer I think, they take the deer that are bred from those and send them to the wild
As most have said, this isn't to let them loose in the wild. No way, now how. Its big business pure and simple, these deer will be sold to the highest bidder on high fence ranches and preserves.

Wonder how much you'd be looking at to purchase some bred does from that outfit. I bet 10,000 per doe, there's no telling. Don't like it though.

well i saw this website on TV and that is what they said they did, i think on the website they are called stocker deer this is what is says on the website...

Stocker Deer
We can help stock your ranch with some great bucks and does
Huntinman,
Those are stocked into HF ranches as the others said. Heck they have whole market in Texas based around FARMING deer. It's so common place that many Texans see nothing wrong with it. When you can raise deer and sell hunts at $3000 - $15,000, a lot of farmer/ranchers are finding there is something even more profitable and fun that cattle, and easier too!!! Hell, Deer are probably the #2 livestock in Texas.



Sounds exactly like raising livestock to me. I'm totally against it.
+1, don't tell them Texans that, you'll be in a fight for sure!!!!

J/K'ing for you Texans that hunt wild deer not farm animals!!!

What's the big deal? They raise deer, sell them to other high fence operations to use. Nobody bitches about breeding cows for size/shape/taste but when it is deer, then we all get revved up. People that hunt high fences want big deer, not an 83" PA 7 point. There is no way to get deer of that size without selective breeding, and that's what they specialize in.

Well, their are deer of that size in the wild, but you have to hunt them and they are few and far between.

Cattle aren't hunted, at least that I know of. I guess as long as it doesn't affect me, but if it would change the whole way hunting in my neck of the woods is done then I would rage holy hell. I'm thinking Texas Trophy Hunters Association.....[:'(].

I don't like the fact that they can send them to be cooped up and shot in high fenced hunting, they have no chance. I disagree with the way those outfitsconduct business.
