    is there a best time of day to put the does in with the buck? sometimes my buck doesn't seem very interested.

    I breed mine mid-mornings too (around 9-10 am) and that always works for me!
    I put the doe in and make sure I see it happen and then I put her back (my buck is lazy after 1 breeding!) and I put her back in with him throughout the day...usually every hour or so until around 6 pm.
    I know it sounds difficult but I gotta know for sure that she's pregnant ha ha :p
