Thread: Barley for Deer

  1. #1

    Barley for Deer

    I have been asked to get to grips with some muntjac in a large wood, there are feeders in the wood but no longer in use l have no wheat available but do have some barley.
    I dont wont to get into a debate on the ethics of baiting deer its been done to death before but will barley work the same as wheat or am just going to waste my time.

    I can't see any reason why it should not work, I feed barley to red deer. Just start off with small quantities as it can give them the shits if they eat too much too soon; their guts need time to adjust. If one animal gets the hang of it before the others and eats a lot they can get toxic. I use milled barley but others use whole barley.
