I am going to try something. 5 WT does, a buck fawn, a 4 point, 6 point and 9 point and 2 Axis does have gotten into about a 20 acre trap that I was deferring from the Ibex. Starting since about the first of the year I have been feeding free choice all they want Lyssy deer protein. Also have a feeder that throws out a few seconds of corn twice a day. Also have been feeding Beef Grower which is a textured feed from Lindners in Comfort. This is the feed I feed the Ibex. I want to see first hand what the difference in antler grow and fawn growth from non feed deer from around here. We shall see if I can keep them until about August and what the cost is and if it is worth it money wise.

I do not hunt Ibex here. I raise them. You must be one of those anti HF liberals that voted for Obama on here that sound off frequently.

I did not take any before pictures. I found one half of the 9 points antler. They stay in about a 3 acre cedar brake during the day and I do not want to go looking for sheds in there.

Can you be certain the deer in the alternate group are not getting similar or better feed or into a better food plot? Always thought you had to have "controlled" groups to compare. 2cents

No matter how it turns out, if they are expendable come fall, please let me know.
