Our Deer Facility

Our new state-of-the-art deer facility allows us to easily work and handle our deer when needed.  The facility is used for a variety of specific reasons throughout the year - including separating fawns, vaccinating the herd, and (AI) artificially inseminating our does.

The hallway of the facility is utilized during the summer months as a passway from a covered feeding station to an outside play area in order to permit the fawns to easily acclimate to the building.

The facility which is 50' x 80' has three-fourths of the building devoted to the working barn and one-fourth of the building is dedicated to office area.  The office kitchen is for preparation of milk used in bottle-raising fawns.  AI work on does and semen collection of bucks may occur in either the office or the barn.

We are extremely pleased with the Priefert Deer Chute which we chose to utilized in our facility.  The four piece unit from Priefert is actually the first complete four piece unit produced and sold through Priefert Backwood Bloodline Wildlife Equipment.

Below are photos of the our completed facility, as well as photos taken during construction of the facility in 2012.

For those who are considering building a deer facility and/or for those who are interested in purchasing a Priefert Deer Chute, you are welcome to tour our operation. 

Prior to beginning construction, we toured quite a few facilities around the state.  We think that it is important to gather various ideas, and to design a building to fit your particular needs. 

We are happy to have visitors tour our building.  Just give us a call at 254.865.8787 to arrange a time to visit.
