The best bang for your buck is soy bean from a local farmer. Mix about 25 % to 50% in a feeder. According to what I have on camera, some years I don't bother. This year is a year to do it. Ive got several that have good potential. The first pic, has a poor rack for his size body. The body size reveals that he has no lack of food but for sure a genetic restraint that will never be overcome by protein. The middle deer pic..... Not sure. The last pic.... this deer has good potential with good genetics. Protein will help him reach his max potential. The key is reaching max potential. Yet potential is determined by his genes. EDIT, after another look, the last deer is older than my first impression led me to believe. He should have more rack than this although what he is symetrical and 10pts. I guess you work with what you got.

I have a thread on the trail cam section that shows a 6pt last year and 8pt this year. He is the same deer, I know for a fact. I don't necessarily think one is better than the other but feed is good. He was fed buck muscle from March till Oct.

how can you know for a fact that you are looking at the same deer? Not trying to be a smart rear, just asking a serious question

There's no way you have land in Macon county and not be relatively close to agriculture, that being said soybeans have higher protein than buck muscle and would be cheaper.

I have property in Macon county and have been feeding buck muscle for two years now. Deer absolutely hammer it during the spring ang summer and I use it as an attractant during the season. The feed is first rate and the buck muscle boys are great people.

I could care less about the followers. I just want to know about the Buck Muscle.

If you have FB you can see if it's any good.

I know people who use it. I personally don't.

I changed over to buck muscle 2 years ago. I am not feeding the coons nearly as much when I was feeding a different feed.
Manchester feed sells it. You can buy direct from the farm but need to buy 10 bags minimum.

He had a broken left front leg last year, watched him all winter, heal up. If you look at the 8pts front left leg just below the elbow you can see where it healed up.

In Newnan its about 15/ bag at Arnall.
Much cheaper if you buy direct but they told me by the ton only. I dont have anywhere to store it.
They did eat it well all summer but walked away just after the acorns came down.

I think using soybeans mixed with my corn would be cheaper too.And the soybean is like 34% protein,I think I read that right.I had the Buck Muscle in my trough feeders 2 yrs ago on this same property,I couldn't keep it in there fast enough,they hammered it.And I cant afford to feed them like that.If I put soybean in with my corn,it should work well in my tripod feeder.I can limit how much they eat that way.

I know there is agriculture in county,just saying my tract is not within 3 or 4 miles from any crops.
