Choosing High-Quality Deer Feeders

Thursday, October 20th, 2016

Tips For Selecting A Deer Feeder

Tips For Selecting  High-Quality  Deer Feeders

Free-choice self-feeders protect Deer Chow® pellets and provide them to deer whenever they want to eat. Because deer eat at different times several times a day, professionally made free-choice feeders (or even trough feeders) are the best way to feed your deer for maximum intake and antler growth. Spin feeders toss out grain or Deer Chow® pellets at timed intervals. They are also good to use with corn to attract deer to the area you want to start feeding with free-choice feeders.

One free-choice feeder can comfortably feed 25 free-ranging deer, each consuming an average of 1.5 lbs of AntlerMax® Deer 20 per day. Place your feeders along frequently used runways or trails and be sure to have enough so that they do not have to travel more than ½ to ¾ of a mile to a feeder. A good rule of thumb is to provide one feeder per 300-400 acres. Never hunt in a feeding area.

For best results, make sure your feeder location provides:

  • An easy approach into the wind
  • Good visibility
  • Access to fresh clear water
  • Easy escape routes near cover
  • Good deer traffic

To help keep deer on your low or unfenced property, place your feeding areas near the center of your land and no closer than 500 feet from the perimeter. Do not place feeders along fence lines, roads, power lines or in large openings.

J&N Feed & Seed offers high-quality deer feeders from All Seasons Feeders, Big Horn Metals, Atascosa Wildlife Supply, and Hang ‘Em High. Stop by our store and talk to us about starting a supplemental deer feeding program.
