So a few weeks I put out a couple protein feeders to help supplement my deer herds, and it brings me great pleasure to let you know how successful they have been. Normally this time of year is very difficult for the deer and other wildlife, but with the unseasonable warm temps they seem to be just fine. I normally put out minerals after deer season has ended, and last year I added protein to the mix. Protein is not only important to bucks for weight gain and antler growth, but it’s also very important for the does as it helps with lactation for the upcoming fawns. Below is a few pictures I have gotten since I put the protein feeder out, and they are tearing it up. Check it out.
So as you can see my deer have certainly taken quite an interest in the protein feeders and minerals I put out. This particular spot I have had better than average activity, as some of my other spots it has taken the deer some time to warm up to the feeders. But believe me not, once they get used to it, it’ll be hard to keep them away. I can tell you I’m so excited to see the results come this fall. If you haven’t tried mineral and protein supplementation I highly recommend you do.
