In all honesty I have no clue how many deer we're actually medicating but remember it only takes 2 or 3 mouthfulls to medicate a deer.
In all the deer we have harvested in the last 2 years we've only had one that had parasites present. Pretty good results in my opinion.


Sounds like it’ll be worth a trip down there to pick up a trailer load. Or my guys fat fingered the keyboard. But I’m not spending 1k for wormer

We fed it this year and obviously hadn't seen any results but feel it can't be a negative.

Charles Eckel with L&E out of Llano came to my place yesterday to take some fecal samples. I ask him about the rate of application and he told me they recommend 2 lbs per day per head for 7 days. Using that as a guide, a ton should feed 140+ head.

So basically they’re recommending that you only feed enough for them to clean up in a week?
