Default Rice bran

What is the advantage of feeding rice bran?
Is it an attractant like corn or more beneficial?
We already feed protein

Fattening! I pour a couple piles at each feed station. Bucks will hit it before anything else. Occasionally mix 10-15# with corn in the feeders.

Do you use the rice bran that is sold as a horse supplement or another kind? Thanks, Mike

Same type they feed to cattle in the powder form. I also mix it with my hand corn and place in piles along my shooting lane. If you mix with an attractant the rice bran will also absorb the smell.

Built a wood rice bran feeder I think I put 10 bags and was gone in like a week to two. They love the stuff. High in fat and puts on the calories that helps them get through low food times

I will feed it during hunting season. I built a trough feeder and the deer will go through about 150lbs a week.

The horse feed is stabilized rice bran, the fat content is reduced I believe and it’s way more expensive.
West TX deer love, my eastern deer have just started to eat it someaftwr a couple hrs of trying it, hogs and especially coons will hammer it as well.

It’s like crack for the deer around San Angelo, Atwood’s is the most consotant place to get it but there is not many Atwood’s around except dfw area.

Many of your attractants are nothing more than scented rice bran with a few peas and corn mulched up in it.

Come on..it is rice. You must not have many hogs.

Coons will eat it and even have a possum that shows up every night.

Its the only thing I have put out that pigs don't bother with at my farm in Houston County. The deer love it and will eat it before corn. I like it cause I can put it in small, off the path locations that are great for bow hunting.

I am planning on picking a bag up this weekend and putting a camera on it

No expectations of deer eating it but I can add it to the list of things people have said deer like that the deer on my place won't even look at
