Before you head to the lease, pick up deer feed at Wells Brothers!
Not sure if it really exists, but here are some ways Wells Brothers can help get the most out of deer you have. Our whole corn is in 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 is 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.
If you are planting food plots we can help you with that also. Product selection in this area is vast. Unfortunately, many selections are tailored too large or too small for the plots we plant or even worse, the wrong area. That is why Wells Brothers has put together a “Build Your Own Plot Mix” section. This allows hunters to buy wheat, oats, clover, turnips, and Austrian winter peas by the pound. This gives you options. We also carry 2 “Fall Deer Plot Mix” in 50-pound bags made in Justin Texas. Come on in and take a look. I would like everyone to have a safe and effective season.
