Which one of the premium deer feeds has the best attraction due to its smell/aroma?
Let me rephrase the question. What premium feeds have you used and what where the results?
I've had above average results with deer 365. Has good smell and hardly no attraction from coons or hogs.
I just feed 14-16% protien pellets from the feed store, Deer love'm and its easier on the pocket book than the protien pellet bags with deer on them
Deer 365 is only thing I've tried so far besides corn and rice bran. Coons and deer didn't seem to carry for it.
How do you feed this, trough or feeder?
How do coons and hogs react? Do they eat it alot?
coons yes, deer yes , hogs i don't know don't have that problem at either place....yet
I can tolerate coons, Deer will eat a 55 gallon drum in a week at my place at mtn view and no coons in the pics
Everything eats the protein pellets where I hunt in Sharp county. Deer 365 works for me. The deer love it and the coons and hogs stay out of it. it is 18% - 20% protein.
We feed a deer feed made at Caldwell feeds. It added about 25% to their weight and about 25% to their Boone and Crocket score. It took a while for them to start using it. We mixed it with corn and added a few apples under the feeders.
It got expensive. We were feeding 6 free range feeders on 600 acres.
Those are impressive results. I think your last sentence explains it. We haven't seen near those results, but we only have 10 protein feeders on around 6,000 acres. There are some places here running 1 feeder to every 80-100 acres that are growing some huge deer. We can't afford to feed that much.
Ahhhhh the ole Texas A&M offense. Protein pellets everywhere. I hate that offense.
I think I read something where MSU research shows the high protein foods work for second generation - on captive deer that don't have food available elsewhere. In your opinion, how well does it work on wild deer?
They work amazingly on captive deer. I would rather not speak on wild populations. I.e. the "A&M" offense.
Did you just say "HOGS STAY OUT OF IT"!!!????!!!??!?!!
What about the unicorns? Seriously man you are lucky.
Not sure why but I have pictures of hogs near the feed trough with Deer 365 but never a picture of one eating it. If I put pellets or corn in the trough, they are all in it.
