That's right by me. I'll have to look up what it is. Price?

It's not cheap as you know. I guess I am also paying for the convenience of not having to drive to Dilly. I paid around $14.50 a bag I think.

My bud is running DD on his ranch and deer became addicted to it. It's crazy....deer eat, then go lay down for a while then back on it. And this is an area with very lush range conditions. Bud has 2 protein stations on his 300ac and since he switched to DD his deer numbers have gone way up. I know there could be other factors involved but I've never seen deer literally run to protein stations like a kid to the ice creme truck.
Darn sure something in it they really like.

I am not familiar with this feed. Is it a complete deer ration or some type of mineral?
Thanks and Adios,
Gary

It is a complete deer ration to include a mineral package,very high fat content(peanuts) and fiber (cotton seed) from what I have seen on a couple of different ranches that feed DD the body weight and antler growth is remarkable. If you are looking for a distributor in the Boerne area call Petra at Strutty's 830-981-2258 they received their first load of DD Monday and they are already out. She said she can fill your order within a couple of days notice if they are out.

20% protein
4% fat
6.5% fiber
So far no public info of nutrient / mineral content or a guaranteed analysis so it can be compared to other well known / reputable feeds.



The marketing sounds like Buck Crack in a 50lb bag.

I've been feeding it two years now it has made a very noticeable difference for us. Just be ready to dig deeper in your pocket. I fed over 90,000 worth last year compared to about 70,000 the year before we switched

DH....you not the first I've heard this from in so tex. In fact im pretty sure our manager at the HF ranch near Catarina is going to switch to it next year. I'm hearing more and more positive feedback from DD and believe me I'm a very skeptical person.

I've taken many, many photos of deer on a large place in SW Texas for several years now. The deer have added more mass and length than I thought was possible from year to year. I'm not selling the stuff and I don't care what anyone feeds but I know what I've seen and photographed!

think the record rainfall for the past two years has anything to do with it? We feed a different brand and have had awesome horn growth the past two seasons

we also saw noticeable improvement when we added cottonseed to our ranch

The ranch I'm referring to in Maverick county had 7" last year per the land owner. Not exactly a record!

I am in Maverick County and there was officially right at 38 inches of rain last year (2015) - the year before that (2014) it got 19 inches or almost three times the average - the average is 7 inches a year. I am less than 20 miles from that ranch - If that ranch only got 7 inches then its gauges need to be checked

no internet report - we track it in several different ways and off of actual gauges - Also know several other LO in Maverick and they all recorded the same levels - so if you really believe that a ranch in Maverick County got 7 inches total in 2015 then you keep believing that.
