From what I understand they are just like the bucks (genetic wise) you have some does that are bigger and better than others.

Tell me and I forget. Show me and I remember. Involve me and I understand.

yep its the same.all animals,plants and people have genes

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

Man ronn what kind of work do you do? LOL just joking. I think that I read that the most mature doe or does get priority by like sparring with the front hooves with other does for seniority or something. I don't know.

Just ask Tiger Woods if genetics are important. Same for deer, better genetics, better baby animals. Good genetics/nutrition more chance of twins & healthly offspring. IF you believe in the spike gene possibility, then genetics play a big role in buck offspring. Take a look at the dairy industry, they want to clone the best mike producers which have been built by genetics through breeding, yes artificial insemination, but the product came from live animals, no pun intended.
