Daisy Mae Line
Off the flees farm we identified 2 doe groups we want to work with. We are by no means saying there is any flaw in their many doe groups we have just felt with where we are going these 2 doe groups work for us. The 1st is Daisy Mae, she is the maternal Dam to Bucky and Daisy. Daisy is the only daughter Daisy Mae had before she died. Daisy is the mother to Harry and Daiseree, the mother to 1 of our dams. Her father is G-36, Daiseree is the mother to Duke the largest typical 2yr. old ever on their farm. TD and 2 Timberjack sons which were 2nd and 3rd largest yearling ever, remember who was 1st. I know of know sons, grandsons, or great grandsons out of this line that do not stand out. Of these does we have a daughter also out of our doe and have contracted another daughter off the Flees’ farm. A Primetime daughter out of maternal Double bred Daisy out of Daiserees sister Miss Daisy. This program is young and it will bee at least 2010 before we will offer a female from this line.
Split II Line
A little history will help you understand why this typical line fancy’s me. Split II had a son in 2004 that was 216” nearly perfect typical and was recognized as the largest frame in the country, 24” inside 6 by 6. I started digging into how Robert Schmucker had come into this line. When he started he approached Roy Yoder and purchased 8 female fawns out of his program. When delivery was to be made Roy explained that the family had attached themselves to 1 doe fawn and asked if they could keep her and deliver 7, Robert agreed. That lone single doe fawn was Dena the mother to Redoy Bill, in my opinion one of the most influential breeders ever. The reason for the story is we know Split II and Dena have the same father, but I believe they actually are even closer as in womb sisters. Back to the beginning after visiting with Robert in 2004 I realized that Split II had just birthed quintuplets. I told Robert that I had interest in them and by the time I left I bought 4 of the 5. Kert Hunter ended up with the fifth sister, in 2008 he had one of the sharpest 2yr. olds, 235” 21” inside. Along with the four girls I purchased another daughter out of Ruger and Split II and rented Split II and Magnets womb sister in 2005 and AI’d a Sunny Son out of Split II, Magnets half brother. He has bred and backed up on our farm 205@3, sharp buck. We Lap AI’d 6 doe out of Split II foundation to Highroller and Bucky to continue this huge frame. By the way I know of no offspring out of Split II ever under 190” @ 3 or under 20” inside, all frame enjoy her sons and grandsons in this pictorial offspring will be for sale in 2009.
Dan Weaver Line
We were very fortunate to get our hands on this doe line, it is what put Dean Borntrager on the map. Dan Weaver Doe is the grandam to Highroller, Drifter, Rimrock, Eagle, Waylon, Waldo, and probably the mother to Sundance. Even though She puts a lot of multiple points she does consistently put on big frames, which is what we are after. We have both sides of the fence here with a granddaughter out of the Moose doe (P-7) who is from Deans Moose and the Dan Weaver Doe. We also have a daughter out of Highrollers sister (P-2) Waylons sister, who is out of Y-4 and Bambi. We have had some success with line breeding Highroller into this cross with 2008 fawns. This year we used Highroller along with Maxbo. This line is very exciting; we will offer a limited amount of offspring this year in 2009. We will have to see what we receive through AI.
The Pebbles line is the other doe group we are working with from the Flees Farm. She is the dam and grandam to many famous offspring, females include O-105, B-37, R-32, R-33, and Little Pebbles. Sons and grandsons include Maxbo Encore, Hardcore, Maximus DT, Maximus CR, Updraft, Flees’s Poncho, 0079, Maxbo Premeir (largest yearling to date out of her line.) We now have three that go back to O-105. Added to her are Flees Harry and Silverado, another has Buster, B-70, and Maximus DT, and the third has Ice and Bucky added. We also have one with Maxbo XL, Flees Harry on P-4 and Little Pebbles. We are very excited about this line and hope to offer offspring in 2010.
Y-69 is a foundation doe from Griffith Brothers, if you are a deer breeder you should know her #, she is dam to PA Geronimo. He has a sister that all of our lines go back to. Mary from Jeff Huston, dam to Hatchet and a huge Herbie yearling on Jeff’s farm this year. Grand offspring include Sipes Smiley, Scarface, Warden, Shattered, and out widest yearling this year. We have a direct daughter out of Hatchet’s twin, she is the mother to a 215”, 186”, and a 185” yearlings, all out of Reno. We also have the yearlings full sister and a Bucky daughter out of her. We have a direct Mary daughter with Jeff Huston's Jake as her father as well.
We have both sides of the fence here, world famous Eddie Ray’s Patrick 111 and 112, dam and grandma to Thunderstorm, Silverhawk, Silver Bill, Silverstorm, Blazer, Punchbowl, Blackhawk, and many others. The other side is Gzell foundation which has helped put Mark Sipes, Jeff Huston, and Bruce Ritchey on the map. Big sires include Doc, Creature, Herbie, Cyclone, Elwood, Jethro, No Max, Barry, Smoke, and Moose. Both lines are all about big frames, one of our requirements. We own Punchbowl and J-8’s wombsisters, and a direct daughter of Blackhawk’s womb, a daughter of Creatures sister, Elwood’s full sister, granddaughters of PJ 50. We have built serious foundation with crossing big proven sires, Maxbo, Reno, Silverstorm, and in 2010 adding Shadow, Maxbo Hardcore, and Bucky.
