I will discuss in this article the proper feeding techniques used when feeding deer. I’ll go over the placements of corn, rice bran and mineral lick too. I strongly suggest you to visit this page to learn more about this.
Feeding deer can be tricky at times and cause deer to move past your hunting grounds to another hunters territory. To reduce the risk the deer may neglect your food plots, I’ll go over some tips and tricks to support. First off, proper placement plays an enormous role in whether a deer chooses to eat at your designated site or not. If you have two lanes going from East to West in your tree stand then you should have two food plots. Most hunters choose about 50-75 yards away from their stands to have their food plots. This ensures that the deer who choose to dine on your plot isn’t too close but also not too far away at the same time.
First I’ll go over corn deer. There are a few methods to spread deer maize, but all of them boil down to either do it by hand or use a deer feeder. You can purchase your own deer feeders, or build them. We consist of four metal poles which are connected to a plastic bucket packed with deer grass.
Using a battery-operated device, you can choose how much deer maize is strewn from the deer feeder on the field, and how often. They’re not expensive to make but one can get expensive to buy. I would recommend throwing out deer corn by hand, if you’re on a tight budget. The key to this is to scatter it over a radius of 10 yards. Try not to pile it up as deer might miss it because of its “pecking” nature. Deer corn is a great choice which path you choose when feeding deer during and after your hunting season.
Rice bran is a popular hunters choice too. Like deer corn, rice bran typically comes in a 50 pound bag but the opposite of corn is the proper placement for rice bran. You want to make 1-2 piles based on how much you have, when using rice bran. Making piles is the preferred method, because the deer can see and eat very easily.
