What is the best supplement feed program? I’ve read filling them with corn throws off their digestive system and can cause more issues than it solves. Any recommended food?
I’d be careful with that.
Feeding deer is banned in all of MN.
Food plots are best but obviously too late for that.
When it was allowed, I never fed corn. They can eat a ton so not cost effective and if they haven’t had it as part of their recent diet, can cause problems like you said.
Hay or grass baled that year was safe. But again, they eat a lot.
Also once you start, don’t stop.
I hinge cut trees which brings buds down to their level. Or any type of browse cut and piled. This year, good luck getting in the woods. I can’t right now but hope to later this winter and do some hinge cutting. I could say a lot about this type of thing but it’s best if you Google it.
Bottom line is unless you can provide something natural like browse. Don’t do it.
Bird feeders? Great but be prepared to buy a lot of bird food!
