So You Want To Break Into Elk And Deer Farming
In order to make an elk and deer farm profitable, the initial investment can be rather steep. However, just think about the potential and all the fun you’ll have pursuing your passion. There are plenty of buyers out there within different niches, so you should be able to sell your deer and elk easily enough.
It’s all about supply and demand, and let’s just say there is always going to be a demand for deer and elk when it comes to those hunting preserves. Of course, the buyers aren’t just going to make it easy on you. You’re running a business, and you have to tackle the marketing side of things, too. In other words, you need an online presence in order to capitalize on the market. Our friend runs a blog (Midwest Roofing Trends) and he’s going to help us with the online stuff.
You also have to decide what type of deer and elk you’re going to breed on your farm. Furthermore, you have to figure out how you’re going to transport your deer, and you have to familiarize yourself with all aspects of raising them and keeping them healthy and disease free. Are there any deer farms nearby that you can visit? This will give you a great idea on how you might want to approach running your own deer and elk farm.
Thinking About Starting A Deer Farm?
I have a friend that owns a deer farm. I was asking him lots of questions about it because it is something I have always wanted to have. He said he breeds the deer, raises them and sells them to hunting camps that offer pay to hunt experiences. I am so interested in doing this too and I have asked him how he got started. He said this is something his family has always done since he was a kid. He said his grandfather raised them, then his dad and now him. Since it has been handed down over the years he didn’t need to pay to get started with it. I told him about my interest in getting started and he said he would help me. We have been talking about what all I need to do to start. First, I will need to buy some property to put it on. He told me what to look for and how large it needs to be. Once I find property that will work, I am going to purchase it and figure out everything else as I go. I’m glad I have him to help me.
Elk And Deer Farming Can Be A Profitable Business
Are you a hunter or just a land owner? If you own a bunch of land, you could raise white tail deer and also elk for yourself and others to hunt on your property. You do know how popular white tail deer are, right? Of course, if you’re going to start a deer farm on your land, you need that license to do so. It’s not that difficult to get one though.
Are you going to breed and farm deer and elk in order to turn a profit? If so, then you’re going to have to invest a little more money than you would if you were just doing it for fun. One site I’m seeing suggests that you’re going to at minimum need to invest about 25,000 dollars to work on deer farming as a profitable business.
People have all kinds of questions about deer farming. For example, is bottle feeding the best option? Are you going to end up selling deer as they get older, and if so, who are your buyers? Those hunting preserves could be your best bet, but you can also get networked with other breeders who are looking to buy deer and elk as well. Enjoy getting started with your deer farm.
About the deer farmer
My friend works at a local lumber store. He has a friend that works there and he has a deer farm. I didn’t know people had deer farms and I asked my friend how it works. He said he breeds the deer and grows them, then sells them to large hunting places so people can pay to hunt them. It sounds a little unfair to me that people do that and it sounds like it take the whole hunt out of things when you are given something to shoot. I grew up around hunters, and my dad is one too. I’m not sure that he would pay to do this, but I guess lots of people do. My friend said he would pay to hunt for these deer. He said some of them grow very large before he sells them and they are worth paying to hunt for them. I just can’t agree. I have been looking around to see what people pay to hunt and it is unreal to me. I guess if you like to do it and want to do it that way what can it hurt as long as you are having fun.
I love wildlife and for years have talked about owning a deer farm. We haven’t really had the money to put into owning one and all the extra fees and licenses we will have to get. I’ve been talking a lot about it lately and how interested he is in doing it. I told my wife we should look into getting a loan to get the property and everything we will need to do it. We can build a home on the property so we will be there at the farm all the time. I told her I am willing to do this, and I wouldn’t mind having a new home too. We are going to look around and see how the loans work and if we will even be eligible to get a loan. I can’t wait to see what we can make happen. I would love to be able to make a dream I have always had happen and I want to have a new home too. I hope we can make it all work for us so we can both have what we have always wanted to have.
