what you are proposing was tried and shot down by the hunting community not long ago.you cant reuse deer ,either kill and eat it or leave it alone

Default What I See???

it take 3 to 7 years for a deer to produce a nice rack? (Right) Where I am from if it have antlers its shot and all the does a left behine and the spikes to breed them. So know in our area there are few big bucks and the genetics are so so. Leaving a 5 to 10 years before there will be any big boys in the area. Where darting a deer I can dart a yearling 6 pointer and still have the deer next year to be a 10 or 12 pointer. Dart that dear and the 3rd year have a nice trophy buck 170 class. 4th year with some of the genetics out there I would love to seethe next years!!! IF you kill him he is dead???

Growing deer. What's the fun in that. I'd rather take notes from wmi and and other seasoned hunters And earn my rack. That's where the joy of deer hunting lies.

The reward in hunting is being able to experience the great outdoors, learning the habits of all animals in your area, putting in the time and effort, and if all things work out harvesting an animal. This to me separates a hunter from average joe.

We found a couple deer locked up on the ice, one was dead and partially eaten and frozen to the pond ... It took 3 darts in the live one to bring him down ... I can only imagine the kind of night he had ... He was freaked out ... He ran off after being released ...

I'm stuck on your original statement of "I have to dart 8 deer". Sounds like somebody has a quota to fill for herd sampling as in a Wildlife Management Survey. If so, think of it as target practice.
