Just your post above is a perfect example - butt hurt? No...... just rational people not buying into the hype that you have chosen to buy into

I am not mad at holden or DD. Never said it was not a good feed. If any other feed company was doing the same silly "over promotion" of their feed I would feel the same

What I (and many many others object to) is the over promotion, info commercial type hype that the DD people put out.

Some of us have been around long enough to recognize the exaggeration
when we see it. Some of the sensationalized claims about what this feed does is silly IMO.

Keep in mind that the vast majority of hunters out there cannot put feeders out every 100 acres and do not have an unlimited feed bill. It is very close to being a feed lot whether you want to admit it or not. I have even read claims that "deer will pass up natural browse so they can eat DD feed" - who in their right mind would believe that if you know anything about free range deer?

So for the average hunter, feeding enough DD to produce 200 inch deer will never happen. But the promotion draws people in on the hope that they too can reproduce what Holdens ranch does. I do not like seeing people being taken advantage of and spending their hard earned money on promoters. So if you think that is being "butt hurt" then go ahead and believe that.

Last but not least - if anyone dares to question the miracle feed, the "soldiers" come out in force to bash anyone who dares question their feed - please observe what your response will be to this post - you will prove my point by your response.

Iím Not currently feeding protein... but can DD or any of the others be broadcast out of a timed corn feeder? Iím sure itís not ideal, but better than nothing I reckon.

I think its a great product and kudos to him for growing an awesome place. There’s no doubt he changed the bell curve on his place but i have some questions after listening to his podcast on youtube with wildbuck. If its so great why do they still feed cottonseed. Peanuts grow underground, do deer even eat them in the wild or do they eat the plant? If they claim its not for penned deer cuz forage is needed with it, then why brag about deer making their biggest jumps at 11 years old because they have no teeth and only being able to eat double down cuz how palatable it is. If the deer live at the protein feeder and you shut them off to run timed feeders during the day, why did it take 44 hunts to kill your deer. And most importantly how was he able to make 44 hunts during bow season(i am hating on that cuz jealousy). That being said, i think the higher tdn makes it great and helps but i think his success has more to do with his management program than type of protein he feeds but if you can afford it cant hurt to try it

I am feeding Bee County Coop feed. My deer eat WAY less than when I was feeding DD.
Feed bill has been knocked way down. My deer are Fat and Sassy.
Guess they are getting all they need and don't need to stand at the feeder 24/7.
Bee County Coop only uses the best quality feed products, no fillers.
Trust me, they told me so, only top quality stuff!!!

In my experience from North Texas to West Texas... big mature bucks don't like to be near feeders at all. In fact, all my big deer stay 40+ yards away from them when chasing doe, and they have one specific pattern, living nocturnal.... and it is absolutely frustrating for a bow hunter. But, you will get lucky in November..

+ if you buy 12 tons, delivery is free.
It is $380/ton for 17% and $420/ton for 20%.
If I were you Black Gold, I would put either DD or this Superior Bee County coop feed in your spin feeder with your corn and feed it timed with your corn.
