Thread: Feeding deer

    Feeding deer

    Just wondering what if anything you can put down for deer. I was told apples are a good option. Just curious as I have salt licks in another area already

    If you can wait a couple of months get some sugar beet. Cut that up and spread it around. They are rather partial to it and its cheapish.

    Not tried so cannot say for sure. Apples are good but I find beet, cheap, readily available and both reds and sika love it. Not sure about other species but cant see why they wouldn't be the same. Another good thing is that the size means that they will take quite a while to eat it.

    It depend's if your using a feeder etc ... I had good success just spilling a sack of wheat / barley onto an old tree stump that had fallen over, I found if on the ground they only ate the piled stuff and left the stuff on the dirt.

    I am trying to get a tube feeder of some sort knocked up atm. I also have a big drum of rolled oats mixed with wheat, going to give that a go soon :-) also brings in all sorts of things like squirrels and birds too.

    Do you just throw them down on the ground or put them in some sort of feeder ?

    I have seen Fallow really getting stuck into Hay but i have no idea if it is good for other species or even a good idea in the first place. Maybe Forum members can comment please.
