Why it’s the Best Time to Start Feeding Protein

Posted by

Developing big deer requires consistent efforts throughout the year including the spring and summer months. Whitetail deer are searching for the necessary food needed to stay healthy year-round. Texas Hunter Protein Feeders are a great way to supplement your deer’s diet because they provide a steady stream of nutritious feed to improve the overall health of your deer.

Higher Survival Rates = More Deer

A consistent diet of protein feed will result in a larger population of deer because of the  higher survival rates with feeding. A protein feeding program gives your deer the energy they need to survive. During the rut, bucks get worn down. With a protein supplement they’ll have more energy and faster overall body recovery to help increase survival rates and initiate antler development.

Improved Antler Development

Feeding protein also gives deer the important nutrients they need to maximize their antler growth during the spring and summer. By providing protein year-round, you’ll improve their antler development and their chances of growing a bigger rack.

Does and Fawns

Don’t forget about the ladies! High protein diets are also beneficial to pregnant and lactating does. The higher nutrition benefits fawns during initial growth in the womb as well as after birth through the milk from the does. With a higher fawn survival rate, you have an opportunity for more trophy bucks in the future.

Corn Attracts and Protein Grows

Feeding corn with Texas Hunter Directional, Wildlife, or Road Feeders attract deer, but Protein Feeders give the higher nutrition needed to maximize buck and doe health. It’s ideal to have both corn and protein feeders to provide a complete diet for your deer.
