Being that Mow is from Granbury and hunts west of Abilene I'm thinking Red Chain Feeds from Gorman Milling. I know when I called them about a month ago they were about $9.50-$9.75 for 20% picking up direct at the mill. One of these days I'm going to swing by there with a trailer and pickup a couple tons.

Fed Red Chain Protein pellets for 10 years year round. It did nothing for bucks antlers, but it did put some body weight on them. Switched to L&E protein a couple of years ago, seems it's doing the antlers a lot better.

Red Chain smells kinda funky to me. I'm assuming they use cheaper ingredients. As always, YMMV.

I have used Red Chain with good results. It has been peanut meal based and the deer take to it better than any other pellet I have tried. However, I just bought several tons and the current mix does not appear to be peanut based. The label said plant and not peanut. It did not smell like peanuts like the pellets I have bought in the past. I'll see how it goes.

I have never fed the red chain, but after perusing the THF for the past 12 years Red Chain is a pretty common name with folks who have had problems getting deer to eat it I believe.

Saw a guy with 2 skids of the Red Chain on his trailer out in Rotan on Friday. Would've liked to have stopped and talked to him but as usual I was in a hurry.

Not sure of the brand we are feeding. Get it at Carbon Ag and Feed. Deer took to it quick and well. Raising us some trophy sized Coons for sure though. eeks333 bang What we buy is more expensive then 9.00 a 50 lb bag though. I think its 22% IIRC.

I paid $11 a bag for Record Rack (sportsman choice) this weekend. It has better nutrients compared to the other stuff they had I believe.
