Put two or three years in the feeder. Older deer generally have bigger racks.

be happy you have 8 pointers, the area i hunt they dont get 8 points till about 4 years old, and less than 1 percent seem to make it that far.

I don't know how much acerage you have to control, but unless it is a lot there isn't a lot you can do. As they mature they will start ranging over several hundred acres and the odds are you either won't ever see them many times or somebody else will get them. Time is the main ingredient.

Miracle Grow found in the Garden Center at Wal MartPut it on your Food Plot and they will double in size[8D]

Really, Good Food(Corn, Wheat, ECT.and Minerals will help more that nothing at all. Good luck!

The 8 & 6 point are probably about two year old, but i only have about 40 acres to manage, does the Antler King really work, and can i find it at the feed& seed store?

DONT BUY ANTLER KING!!!

your just paying more money for a company's name.

50lb stock salt
50lb di-cal
100lb trace mineral

200lb = $20

im so sick and tired of companies ripping us hunters off. just like foodplot seeds. your paying for a name brand.



a 2 year old 8 point really aint that rare, but he will grow into a shooter.
i agree with timbercruiser. its all about time.
mineral licks and food plots does help the deer heard but to grow big bucks you need to cull also, and LET'M GROW!

not an expert as i haven't had time to research the makeups of each of these products, however, i'd venture to say it is much like what you could expect when an athlete is taking supplements...now, you can get the more expensive stuff that is the highest quality possible that is specified to your specfic needs, or you can go with a generic that will, yes indeed, give you results as well...however, with the higher quality stuff, you will see better results faster IMO[&:]
