Is deer feeding a seasonal or annual event?
Depending on your region of the country and the type of property on which you hunt, feeding may be either a seasonal or annual event. For those people who do not have an annual lease or own their own property, seasonal feeding may be the best option. For those that have leases or own their own property, an annual game management program is the preferred option. Not too long after the traditional season for whitetail deer hunting is complete, in approximately March or April male deer start to lose their horns. Once the horns have dropped it is up to mother nature to determine the amount of protein available in the wild for regeneration of their horns. Supplemental feeding of protein in the Spring of each year helps to maintain a consistent herd of animals with both healthy horns and body mass.
