We used Record Rack for the 1st time this year. Fed from Late Feb til around July when we topped feeders off with corn. I hunt in Gillespie County, central Texas. We typically shoot 2-3 120's every year. This year we have shot 6 and have the new lease record on camera. Will score every bit of 145-150. Never seen this many good bucks on our lease in a single year. Very impressed and has convinced us to feed Record Rack again this spring. Of course, good rains help

Usually shoot 1-2 trophy's with 10pts or better. This year we have seen 7-8 different 10's and several good 9's. Several deer with extra points.

They are almost identical feed. Record rack smells sweeter that's what made me like it better but really just take your pick

We have used Record Rack for 6-7 years and we have tons of deer but I have watched bucks for the last 3-4 years that just do not seem to be benefiting a lot from it.

I mean before we started it they shot deer over 150 EVERY year now never. Don't get me wrong we have nice bucks I just think they should be producing bigger antlers than they are. Maybe its the weather and not the feed just trying to get others input

Ffread, I started feeding AntlerMax 20 on my small place, picked up a pallet last year for $10 a bag. I'd think any 20% is pretty similar in rumen and nutrition but could be mistaken, wouldn't be the first time. Anyhow, I've seen your buck pictures and think you must be doing something right, lol....Could be the drought the past few years.

Give Total Deer a good hard look. It's not cheap but the overall health of our herd has benefited greatly from it. We hunt two ranches that are about 3.5 miles apart as the crow flies. On the main ranch (2500 acres) we feed free choice Total Deer and on the second ranch (165 acres) we don't. The does on the main ranch have lot and lots of twins and most of them survive to maturity because the mom can handle the extra load while eating Total Deer. The does that have twins on the second place usually don't keep both and they look very drawn in if they do. The Bucks on the Total Deer seldom break horns and we have seen about a 15-20% increase in size since we started with Total Deer. The Buck on the second ranch break off all the freaking time and are significantly smaller horned

If you need Some Pricing and more info holler at Neal Hughes 325-668-9710 he's a great guy

I feed a lot of the Purina 20 on low fence. Excellent feed and Purina spends a lot of $$ on research not just another knockoff.

Have y'all adjusted harvest numbers and kept up with population and ratios?
