Find out how to get your deer eating a mineral source. Lance Cote,Mineral Source Mumme’s Inc. wildlife specialist, during the Mumme’s Inc Deer Program Q&A,  shares some simple ways to get started with Purina AntlerMax.


How do I start deer on the Purina Antlermax mineral?

Place the mineral near a deer trail or water source. Mix a mineral into the soil and then replenish the site as needed. You can also place some corn with the mineral at first to attract them to the mineral location.
