Deer farming. AKA, the creation of a large, fenced area of open woodland or cleared woodland stocked with a reproducing deer population for sale/commercial hunting. A friend has recently begun a deer farming endeavor, and is seeing success in gaining interest for his stock even before he is ready to begin selling. Chalk that up to the recent trend in venison consumption (more of it). Plus, since we're seeing more and more people turn to obtaining their food locally (joint beef purchasing endeavors etc.) I think this could have real potential as a source of income in the U.S.

better have very tall fences-
clearing a 6 foot fence is child's play for deer.
there's a 'ranch' near here that uses
8 foot tall fencing with a 'hotwire' strung another 6 inches up and out at top.

elk are another possible cash 'crop'-
i understand the antlers are quite valuable.
sustainable too since they grow/shed a pair yearly.

Hadn't ever thought about that. Pretty clever idea, I must say.

And elk have fairly long lifespans, up to 26 years from around 13 or 14 minimum, so you could probably expect 17-19 pairs per elk at least, assuming you kept them healthy and weren't also in the meat business.

I love this kind of stuff, I think its amazing how many ways to make a living and alternative methods to accepted practice are out there (for all sorts of things) that are so overlooked.

Guess a stew's going to be have to be thrown together to send your way :D
