Benefits of Supplemental Deer Feeding

Monday, July 25th, 2016

Supplemental Deer FeedingThe hot summer months in Texas wreak havoc on white-tailed deer and supplemental deer feeding may be necessary. As natural food sources are low, they will be looking for supplemental feed sources wherever they can be found. This is antler growth season and deer need high quality nutrition in order for maximum antler growth.

There are a number of good reasons for supplemental deer feeding at this time of year:

  • Increased antler growth for bucks
  • Better milk production for lactating does – translates to better muscle and skeletal growth for their fawns.

We recommend feeding Antlermax, 20%-protein pelleted ration designed to enhance the deer’s natural forage diet. Formulated with patented AntlerMax® Technology.

  • Improves antler size and mass and improves body condition.
  • Optimum reproductive performance and strong healthy fawns.
  • Proprietary AntlerMax® Mineral – optimal antler growth, density and strength.
  • Highly palatable – strong proprietary flavor attracts deer and elk.
  • To be fed free-choice with adequate forage or quality hay.

Texas Deer Hunting Regulations

Tuesday, July 24th, 2012

Deer hunting in Texas is a popular pursuit, governed by the regulations set forth by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. Hunters have their choice of white-tailed deer or mule deer to hunt in the Lone Star State.

 Licenses

Texas law requires that every deer hunter possess a license. Those younger than 17 must have a youth hunting license while those 17 and older must purchase a regular hunting license.

Types

There are various types of open seasons for both white-tailed deer and mule deer in Texas. There are seasons for taking these species with a bow, with a muzzleloader and with a rifle as well as seasons for antlerless and “spike” deer.

Identification

In Texas, the regulations define a “buck deer” as one that has a hardened antler sticking out of its skin on its head. A “spike deer” is one with antlers that have no more than a single point on them.

Limits

A deer hunter in Texas may bag as many as five white-tailed deer during the various seasons, but only three of them can be bucks. For mule deer, the combined seasons’ bag limit is two individual deer, with only one a buck.

Special Permit

The Texas Parks and Wildlife department can issue a “managed lands deer permit” to qualifying landowners. It allows hunters to exceed bag limits and enjoy an extended deer-hunting season. These hunters must have the permission of the landowner to hunt on the property.
