One of my good buddies has had land in Madisonville for generations. 2016 deer season will be our first year to hunt it. Anyone have any good luck in or around Madison county? Just put up a deer stand early this month and will be setting up a feeder this weekend. Also, how much do you recommend to feed during off season? Is it a good idea to feed protein as well?


Thanks in advance,

.243 Man

I have my personal place in Buffalo and outside my high fence we feed 3-5 seconds mornings only from now until September 1st. We have hogs come and go and some predators but we try to keep them in check.

We feed soybean/corn mix throughout the year and the deer are starting to show it. Heavier body and horn mass. It's pricey but worth it. The pellet protein has gummed up both the gravity and spin feeder so we switched to the soybean/corn mix. Quail and turkeys love it too.
