Supplemental Minerals have not been proven to do anything for a deer's antlers. A good food source will help some, but nothing will beat time and mild winters.

Good luck with them next year -

Iowa, Mo, KS, Ohio, IL, WI, NY, MA, these places don't have very many Mild Winters do they? I lean towards the Food Corn, MIlo, Wheat and as I think about it Time.

Just give them some age. They will be larger next season without doing anything, give them another year and they will be bigger yet. There is nothing out there that will give them instant large antlers. For at least the first three years a buck is working on growing his bones, this takes away from antler growth. After this he will start putting more into his rack. Bones first antlers second. It sure will not hurt to put out some of the suggested products, but don't expect big results. Sorry.

It will just take time, give him a food source, and give him time.
