    Yep. Can't think for themselves and can and will run full tilt into the fence. It is a pain in the arse to get a mum on one side of a fence and a youngun on the other when moving a mob out of a paddock (mum goes through the gate into a race and the fawn doesn't).
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Yeah pretty much, they jump into the paddock here downhill then cant make it out on the uphill.Shot one in the next paddock a few weeks ago that had tried and ripped the tendon out of one leg and dislocated the other hip.Got this one out through the gate though. Good crop of clover regen after cutting hay sucks them in.

    They sure beat the shit outta themselves pacing the fence line. Same principle for most of the deer traps I've seen.

    Once fence educated tho its amazing what they will get over. Thats a Youngun so bit different of course.
    Back when we had our small farm all the deer were live capture except a couple of sire stags.
    They were all mad as hell for the first couple of years and we would get them in the sheds for a couple of hours 3 or 4 times a week to get them used to it.
    Most of them settled down quite quickly but a few didn't and in those days it was worth paying a vet to amputate.
    IL testify to the fact that a "mad" hind who never got used to domestic life could easily clear without even touching the wire full hight deer fence with only one back leg. She used to do it regularly trying to get them in the sheds and she should have been steak but she had twins quite often.

    We were told in the very early days to put the deer in dark shed on their own when they came of the chopper,lt was crap, Mum decided it was much better to handle them right from the beginning, they seemed to need company and adjusted to humans very quickly, to many of the early ones that were left alone just fretted themselves to death. Orphan fawns used to live in an open box in the toilet in the house for the first few weeks. At $3000 a head they probably would have got my bed if it would have helped

    Sneeze, if only they were still worth this sort of money, I could give up working and go hunting more often than I do. As to hand reared deer, they are a pain in the arse, I had a 10 year old hand reared hing give me the bash on Sunday. I was bending over starting a chain saw and she took the opportunity to establish dominance, got up on her back legs and gave me a quick half dozen smacks with her front legs.

    Imagine the chopper activity . Yes, obviously never raised any stags that way. We still have 2 toilet deer, never gave us any trouble but Mum was a bit of a doctor dolittle .Very old now and most likley couldnt stand on their backs legs if they wanted to. Ones barren but the other has a fawn to a wild stag every year,sort of accidental deer farming
