Get the Facts About Minerals and Deer Health
By: Jason Snavely
Do minerals actually work for improving deer health?
Last month, we discussed what’s really in a bag of food-plot seed and how to make sense of that without getting caught up in the marketing. If you read that column, hopefully you are now wise enough to ignore the fancy graphics on the front of the bag (think 200-inch bucks) and instead flip the bag over to read the label.
This month, I’ll take a similar approach to the topic of minerals. As any bowhunter knows, the same aisle stocked with food-plot seed also has a plethora of mineral supplements GUARANTEED to grow massive racks almost instantly. Lots of hunters use minerals, and if you are one of them, have you ever wondered if you are throwing your hard-earned cash in the dirt along with the pixie dust? And if you don’t use minerals, have you ever wondered if you’re missing out on something that can truly offer benefits to your local deer herd and boost your bowhunting success?
