Thanks for visting Canes Deer. We, Malcolm and Kathy Cane have been farming Deer in Reporoa since 1985, initially for velvet and venison. Soon after, we began producing Canes Deer Velvet capsules, and for the last 25 years our main emphasis has been on producing quality stags for the trophy market. At the same time we have bred stags for good vevet production and calm temperament.
Hinds: Canes hind base began with the purchase of a small pure Woburn herd, from the late Sam Lawson, along with selective puchases from Windermere, Tower Farms, Bob Atkinson, Dick Makill, and more recently the Torpey brothers and Foveran Deer Park.
Stags: We have always chosen to invest in quality stags, starting with the top Adonis son, White 18 from Gordon Fraser, followed by a Yugo/Warnham stag Y3 from Dick Makill. He was incredibly quiet, and his spread was over 60" wide and main beams of 45". We then added Kane to the genetic mix. Over the last few years our main sires have been:
These sires have added width, weight and points in our young stock, and they continue to impress us. We are confident that we are on the right track. From here, the following young stock have made it to our sire mob.
- Adidas - a top Matthew son
- Ody II a superstar coming through scoring 660 IOA @ 5 yrs
- Malibu another Odyssues son 651 IOA @ 5 yrs.
- Koruba - Odysseus son 610I OA @ 4 yrs
- Hunter - a home bred Davidson son, scored by Peter Crowle 800 IOA at 5 years
