Not sure if it really exists, but here are some ways Wells Brothers can help get the most out of deer you have. 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 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. Come on in and take a look.
If you are planting food plots, we can help you with that also. Visit our “Build Your Own Plot Mix” section in our store, where you can purchase seed by the pound. We also carry “Fall Deer Plox Mix” in a 50 lb bag, made locally here in Justin, Texas.
