    So I am wanting to put the buck in with the ladies....but I don't want them bred until maybe October. Has anyone had any experience hobbling their buck so hey can't jump up to mate the does? TIA

    I wouldn't put the buck with the does now if you don't want them bred

    I’ve used buck aprons with great success. I’ve never heard of breeding hobbles though.

    Even with an apron, he is going to bother the does.
