    What is the best thing to feed deer in winter

  • #2
    If they are eating out of a food plot than a winter wheat, alfalfa, winter peas blend is good for them. If it's not a food plot than corn or even hay will do very well.

      Deer will eat tons of corn all year round. Cant go wrong there.

        Del I've had a lot of luck with canola food plots in Kansas. Like rabbit said though if its not a plot corn and milo work really well. If you want more info on my plots look at the message board http://www.fieldandstream.com/forums/hunting/whitetails/food-plots

          Corn from a feeder with a timer.

            I forgot, whatever it is spread it out. Deer will fight over the food in the winter and the smaller ones won't get any if it's in a small pile.

              Lead, or arrow tips- just kidding. Deer around here line up for alfa alfa and apples.

                    In the midwest its unlikely alfalfa or milo will be standing very long, it'll get ate or snowed under as you must know. I'd go to a Co-op and get the cheapest protein type meal available, you can buy in bulk pretty reasonable. And buckhunter gave a good tip about spreading it out.

                        I'm going to disagree here with most and say go green. winter wheat, clover, peas, beans. Corn is great but I think there are better things out there that will last longer.

                        also the crows and squirrils won't eat as much of them like they do corn. Trust me I've got hundreds of pictures from a game cam of crows, squirrils and other stuff eating my deer corn.

                            In MI we can't bait, so food plots are your only bet. I have tried several mixes, but rape or brassicas have worked well in the winter. Also any thing like corn or soybeans is always a good bet. If you can supplement minerals too.
