    The state regulations are getting tougher because of cwd but as long as my father is able to keep his permits the buck hopefully will die from old age.But right now he is only 4-1/2 he still has awhile to go.

    The fence is 8 ft. with two stands of barbwire above that. we have around 15 acres under high fence. We have around twenty deer we do supplemental feeding to make up for the size of the pen.You can tell we are doing a good job feeding due to the mass on the racks and the body weight of the deer.Our does usually produce two offspring which is antoher sign of a healthy heard. I not worried about getting our license revoked but they might make it to expensive with a bunch of check ups wtih the vets and pen restrictions(making sure their in the top quailty)We have to tag our deer and keep records on every one. So we had to purchase a dart gun and all the stuff that goes with it. Not complaing about it it just gets preatty tuff to keep up with all the stuff that goes along with it. Alot of work & money for a hobby.

    Do you bring deer in to keep the gene pool from being screwed up??? With your does producing two fawns apiece, what are you doing to keep the number of deer at 20????

    Are you concerned about the new bill that's in the Senate???

    We use to trade the yearlings but we never had a breeder buck breed for more than a couple of years a new guy usually steps up and takes charge. As far as are genetics we have five bucks that we score over 140 all the way up to 170. I'm not sure about the bill your are talking about. I just hope we don't over react to cwd like wisconsin did. we don't know how long this disease has been around. We just didn't check for it or have a name for it. I'm not scared of it wiping our state herd out. I would like to find out alot more about it before we make drastic changes.

    What county is your deer farm in????


    "I'm not scared of it wiping our state herd out. I would like to find out alot more about it before we make drastic changes." FACT--Almost every case to date of CWD has been traced to a captive deer herd operation.


    Senate Bill 112-Here it is. I'm surprised you wouldn't know about it. It could cost you and your dad millions of dollars if one of your deer causes an outbreak of CWD in the State.

    SB 112:
    AN ACT relating to cervids.
    Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Kentucky:

    Section 1. KRS 150.720 is amended to read as follows:
    (1) The Department of Agriculture in cooperation with the Department of Fish and Wildlife shall promulgate administrative regulations pertaining to health requirements, eradication of diseases, and identification of privately owned and farm raised cervids maintained for the production of meat and other products. The Department of Fish and Wildlife in cooperation with the Department of Agriculture shall promulgate administrative regulations pertaining to the importation and holding of cervids.
    (2) If any person imports a diseased animal into the Commonwealth in violation of the statutes and administrative regulations, then that person shall be responsible to the Department of Agriculture and the Department of Fish and Wildlife for all costs incurred in the investigation, response, and eradication of that disease.
    (3) No person shall import or transport a live cervid into Kentucky or receive shipment of a live cervid in the state from without the state.
    (4) The intrastate movement of live cervids shall be done pursuant to regulations promulgated under this section.
    (5) If a captive cervid escapes and is not recaptured within forty-eight (48) hours, it shall be deemed nuisance wildlife and may be destroyed without compensation to the owner. The Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources may recover from the owner costs incurred in capturing or destroying the animal.
    (6) If any person holds or transports cervids without a permit, the animals may be seized and disposed of without compensation to the owner.
    Section 2. KRS 150.990 is amended to read as follows:
    (1) Each bird, fish, or animal taken, possessed, bought, sold, or transported and each device used or possessed contrary to the provisions of this chapter or any administrative regulation promulgated by the commission thereunder shall constitute a separate offense. The penalties prescribed in this section shall be for each offense.
    (2) Any person who violates any of the provisions of this chapter or any administrative regulations promulgated by the commission thereunder may, in addition to the penalties provided in subsections (3), (4), (5), (6), (7), and (8) of this section, forfeit his license, or if that person is license exempt, may forfeit the privilege to perform the acts authorized by the license and shall not be permitted to purchase another license or exercise the privileges granted by a license during the same license year. No fines, penalty, or judgment assessed or rendered under this chapter shall be suspended, reduced, or remitted otherwise than expressly provided by law.

    These deer look very similar to the deer two of my buddies have pen raised over the years , they both had large fenced lots and did the supplement feedings too, I don't fence but I do the feeding and have seen very similar results on free roaming deer. The only reason I think we will see CWD show up is from the elk brought in and released, other than that I have watched as many as 10 deer stand and eat from my feeders and have seen no signs of disease or other problems related to feeding. Supplement feeding does improve the health and quality if not over done and I don't see any reason to ban feeding of deer.

    I'm all for a person being able to feed deer if he wants. This can't spread any disease unless one of the deer already has something. But I'm dead against fencing in wildlife that belongs to the state and moving those animals from one location to another. Hopefully this practice will be cut back after the Senate bill passes.
