    Most breeders want to be able to evaluate the doe to ensure she is the quality that you would want to keep a buck from. A yearling is still very immature and can change quite a lot (for the good and for the bad) by the time they are 2. Since a buck can really affect your entire herd (as well as the breed in general) most breeders are VERY selective on which males get to stay in tact.

    You need to get you a smoker. One of my next prodjects here is to build me another one to smoke deer hind quarters on.....when I get done with it , I'll post you a pic and show you some of the best "wild goat" meat that you'll ever sink your teeth into.
