Deer hunting season has arrived and it’s time to put out Antlermax, whole corn, blocks or mix to bring the deer in close. I would like everyone to have a safe and effective season. The safe part is on you, the effective part is where Wells Brothers come in. Our price on whole corn is $7.75 for a 50-pound bag and still, no tax. We have Purina’s Antlermax deer feed, blocks, and loose mineral. The protein percentage of these 50 pounds bags of deer feed are 24%, 20% and a 20% water resistant pellet called “Watershield”. The Antlermax blocks are 33 pounds with a protein percentage of 18. The Antlermax mineral is in a 25-pound bag. We finish this list with MFM’s (Martindale Feed Mill) 16% protein, corn, and roasted soybean mix.
If you feed protein, mix 1 bag of whole corn with 2 bags of pellets. The corn will help keep the pellets from packing in the feeder and it also acts as a desiccant. Watershield will keep moisture from swelling the pellet both in and out of the feeder. I have found that blocks work best when you bury about 3/4 of them. I have used them successfully in both east and west Texas. But the holes are easier to dig in east Texas. You can apply mineral in 1 foot deep holes (pit) or sprinkle it on stumps and logs. I have found the pit method to work the best. MFM’s corn/roasted soybean mix is the best product I have found for getting new feeders active. Come on in and take a look.
