As velvet covered antlers begin sprouting like fresh wildflowers across the country, there’s no better time than now to begin assisting the health of your whitetail herd through rich nutrient based dietary supplements.
Moultrie offers a wonderful Game Nutrition System that provides hunters a complete collection of nutrition products that are designed to lure deer to your property, as well as give them the beneficial ingredients they need to grow strong bodies and big racks.
With opening weekend only a few months away, it’s a great time to begin walking your property and pouring mineral around bait sites to help aid the entire whitetail deer herd. There’s really no better time to begin supplementing your herd with nutritious attractants such as Moultrie’s Trophy Maker Mineral Block than now. Rich mineral-based products such as this, aid in the development of whitetails' skeletal system, antlers and so many other things within their amazing robotic-like bodies.
Most bags of mineral you find on store shelves are basically salt. It’s something called ‘filler.’ Even though these pricey bags of antler booming magic claim unrealistic results, you must sift through the nutritional facts first. Before making your purchase, check to see if you’ve bought a bag of salt, rather than the good, solid vitamins and minerals you really want!
Nutrients can be summed up to be how deer turn their food into living body tissue. Water, protein, carbohydrates, lipids, minerals and vitamins are the essential basics to what a whitetail needs to grow big! Within the mineral, calcium and phosphorus are the big players in bone and antler growth, milk production and metabolism. Healthy doe’s produce healthy fawns. Healthy fawns grow to be healthy deer. It’s as simple, yet complicated as that.
Great places to put mineral is near stumps, under logs, in a dirt patch, or by a deer trail. We’ve all heard of deer literally eating holes into the ground! They aren’t necessarily engulfing the soil, but rather the sodium that drains into the stump, log and soil. Salt is an attractant, as we all know. In my own sense, salt is the primary tasty draw to get deer into the mineral pile. Finding a product with balanced nutrition is key to not only your budget, but also a whitetails health. Next time you buy a bag of mineral, check the back of the bag first. Don’t let a graphically cool front fool you. The important part is not what’s on the outside of the bag, but truly, what’s inside.
Moultrie Game Nutrition System comprises an excellent year-round game management strategy. Use these nutritional supplements to attract deer to your property and then give them the diet they need to grow. When you score a trophy buck this season you'll be thankful you used Moultrie deer nutrition products.
