This Simple Formula Could Help You Start Growing Bigger Bucks On Your Low Fence Property.
Often there is a misconception about big antlers only having the potential of being grown on high-fenced properties.
While that certainly is true to an extent, there are many free ranging bucks that grow above average antlers simply from access to a PROTEIN feeder (nutrition), a reliable water source and reduced stress on the animal during antler development season.
Letting your bucks reach their full potential is most important. We understand letting bucks walk on low fence properties is risky. The risk of neighboring ranches not being management-minded, motor vehicle accidents and predators all make us think twice before letting a nice buck walk.
At the very least, it’s best to wait until 5.5 – 6.5 years before harvesting bucks. This will allow bucks to reach full potential as well as give them time to spread the “good genetics.”
FORMULA: Age + Genetics + Protein Feeder = Monster Wild Deer
With responsible hunting, proper deer management and selecting the right genetics to let walk, great antlers can be grown on virtually any low-fence property.
