How to Start A Supplemental Feeding Program

May 17, 2018

Find out how to start a supplemental feeding program for your deer. Mumme’s wildlife specialist Lance Cote shares some simple ways to get started.

How do I start a supplemental feeding program?

You start by mixing corn and Purina AntlerMax at a rate of fifty percent pellets and fifty percents corn. The corn is used to teach deer that the pellets are a food source. Continue to reduce the amount of corn in a ration until you’re feeding a hundred percent pellets. When you fill the feeder up the first time, only place a couple of bags of pellets and corn in the feeder to ensure fresh feed.


Wildlife management is a major part of the South Texas farm and ranch scene, and Mumme’s is here for you. We are the largest AntlerMax feed dealer in the United States for Purina Mills, the leader in animal nutrition. We offer a large selection of deer blinds, feeders, and hunting supplies.
