Default Supplemental protein is paying off.. BIG!

Late this year I started supplement feeding for all the obvious reasons, but I had no idea how expensive it would become or how rapidly the body weight would increase due to consumption. This feed is still a small scale operation but looks to be promising as you can tell from increased body scores.

Overnight results. And yes these are low fenced, free range deer

What are you feeding to cause them to get spots?

Found these buck droppings in the food plot leading out of feed pen. Camera must have missed him (WI junk). But look forward to hunting him next season!
