Whitetail Deer Nutrition - Whitetail Deer Food Plots: Nutrition For Bigger Whitetail Bucks & Better Deer Hunting! Nutrition is the key to growing trophy Whitetail ...

you know when I talk about food plots

you know most of us look at it as an attractant in some states we can't pour corn on the ground or powders on the ground which you guys you know have different Adir attractants so we got to use stuff we can grow out of the ground you know and we look at that and I sell here's my attractant but I also look at in the last seven years that Larry and I have been putting whitetail Institute product in the ground the improvement and our the quality of our deer is incredible two weeks ago a deer I've hunted for five or six years called the beer-can buck walked in front of my stand and dropped this I can get I can not get my hands around that that's over seven inches now these are not pinned up there free-ranging there and the picket fence there that you guys have used and some of your articles came from this same farm and the quality of deer and it's got to be nutritional value that's doing this yeah it is it's something that all you know they mean that's that's world class wherever you are on a kind of mass and I mean it you know there's just a lot of nutrition and goes into growing these think you meant to some earlier

you know this know three things gonna affect how big these are number one is the genetics which we can't really control in a while free-ranging herd number two we can't control less age preferably we hope to get the deer to four five six seven years old if we can we can get them that age and feed them good all the way along the way you got an opportunity to produce world-class deer and again in Illinois or Iowa some of those Midwestern states you come to Alabama you know if you're looking for a hundred seventy inch deer you know you're probably be here a while we don't generally go week we grow a few of those don't get me wrong but those are rare but what you can do with your property by improving the nutrition that's available to the animals that live on it you can have the best deer in the vicinity in your neighborhood if you will in other words if 160 class deer is average in your area we can bump that up to 170 hundred eighty hopefully in Alabama average dear whatever 110 hundred twenty we hope if we can get them to 130 140 I mean and this is one of the most amazing things there is it's the fastest growing tissue in the animal

world and you can imagine something like this grown in a matter of you know 180 200 days I mean some of y'all be able just sit there and watch it grow but that's a whole lot of boning and this hard antler like this it's 45 percent protein 55 percent mineral as it starts to grow out of the head in the spring what's not blood water but as it starts to grow is 80 percent protein now why do I say that as a rule research has shown do you need about 16 to 18 percent protein average protein in their diet each day during the anta going process to have an opportunity to express their full genetic potential for example a pure white shell clover can provide up to 35 percent protein it's one of the first things to green up in the spring they're gonna be wearing it out in the spring and that's gonna translate into bigger antlers the following fall so by providing a high-protein food source in the spring and summer months not only you help in Bucks grow better quality antlers but also the dough's are in the third trimester of pregnancy when most of the fetal growth occurs plus a higher protein diet will help her produce more

milk for her phone which is going to help that phone get off to a faster start and again the phones are gonna be the deer that we're hunting for five six years [Music] before you spend your hard-earned money on one of those bargain tripods ask yourself whether the tripod you're considering is lightweight and easy to carry does it require a noisy assembly in the field that will scoop game does it have heavy gauge galvanized steel legs does it have a 400 pound weight capacity does it come in four Heights that range from 10 to 16 feet does it have a removable shooting rail that allows you to hunt with rifle and boat does it have a completely silent 360 degree swivel seat does it have a five-year warranty if you're spending less on one of those bargain tripods you're probably getting less why not do it right the first time visit back country journal comm today to learn more I'd like to take a moment to tell you about the lightest most portable highest quality hunting tripod you're ever going to find let's start from the very beginning when your tripod

arrives via UPS at your doorstep here's what it looks like once you've unboxed everything there was some very minor initial assembly required first you attach the legs to the footrest and then you attach the rails to the chair and then you attach the chair assembly to the leg assembly and you're ready to go hunting here's the tripod with the chair D passed from the legs in the 5 foot bed of my Dodge Dakota quad cab now if you're older and heavier like myself you'll probably want the optional double steps that's a step on each side but if you're young and agile like Brodie here you probably won't need the double steps roadie is on a double step tripod but he's showing how you would climb a tripod with alternating steps [Music] here we see Brodie using the rifle rail and in this shot Brody has removed the rifle rail so the chair can be used for archery hunting then here is Brody fishing out of it it's probably gonna be a while good thing he brought a sandwich with him so let's recap shall we before you spend your hard-earned money on one

of those bargain tripods ask yourself if the tripod is lightweight and easy to carry desert require noisy game swooping assembly in the field does it feature heavy gauge galvanized steel legs because I have a 400 pound weight capacity is it available in 10-foot and 11-foot six Heights does it have a removable shooting rail for gun or archery hunting is it completely silent with a 360 degree swivel seat does it feature a five-year warranty if you're spending less on a bargain tripod we are probably getting less why not do it right the first time [Music]
