We also run a 5/32 creep pellet through our free choice protein feeders that really help with antler development, nursing doe, and helps the bucks regain body mass after the rigors of the rut takes it’s toll.
Baiting is legal here in Louisiana for sure. I actually hunt places that I bait and I hunt some places that I don’t bait because there’s plenty of natural food. I film all of my hunts so I will say sometimes baiting makes that a little easier because I know where the deer are going. However, sometimes I just like going into a big oak flat and watching them scratch for every acorn they can find.
Baiting is not legal here in Minnesota, but we are allowed to supplemental feed in the off season. I really like Ani-Supplement GOLD from Ani-Logics because it includes a health pack with probiotics, essential oils, chelated minerals, and vitamins. It’s also a really good attractant and I use it for herd surveys to develop a hitlist before season.
