How to Use a Deer Mineral

May 17, 2018

Find out how Mumme’s wildlife specialist, Lance Cote, recommends using a deer mineral to supplement your deer’s diet in this video.

The product that’s often underutilized in wildlife management is loose deer mineral. This is Purina’s Quick Draw mineral. It’s very palatable. Deer will eat this. The problem with most minerals is deer won’t eat it therefore it does no good. This is a great product to add to your arsenal of wildlife management products. The best way to use this loose deer mineral is go to everywhere deer frequent such as a water source, just find you a clean spot on the ground, pour it in a pile and those deer will find it, and when it’s gone they will actually dig a hole there and keep eating that soil that this has leached into. After its gone go back and get yourself another tub of it and put it right back in that same location.
