we are trying to findd how to make a homemade deer food to attract some deer at our house! does any one know any recipes
we have raised 5 deers and I find they like the horse and mule sweet feed best. we also use plain whole corn or crete. but they will also browse on other green stuff. and still come back to the horse and mule feed.no matter what you feed them, they will still browse other food we had 2 bucks and 3 does. and they does brings in their little one's to us.they also loved to be scratched behind the ear's and jaws
I know a guy who mixes calf or horse mineral from a feed mill (no more than 30% salt) with corn, dried molasses chips(from where..?), acorns, and other seeds and it is supposed to have incredible results. Problem I have is finding some of the ingredients and the costs involved. I have a deer feeder out my back window with usually corn or bird seed (1 gallon limit by state law) and it's gone every night....This hobby can get rather pricy. I like to throw old apples in it in fall, too.
My dad in PA uses plain cracked corn, he said he had up to 30 deer one time in his yard feeding. Wow! a hunters dream!!!
