Wildlife game feeders and food plot forage - resources for supporting and managing your trophy wildlife habitat.
Deer Feed Study - Summary
Wildlife feeders and food plots are useful in supporting game and non-game species populations while improving wildlife habitat.   The below described study was conducted for a student science project to determine which wildlife feeds are preferred by deer.  The green bar chart at the top shows the order of preference.  Preference was determined by evaluating feeding activity from an overhead trail camera on a daily basis for several months.  The feeds eaten first and in the most quantity were scored higher in the rankings each day.  A final score was determined using a spreadsheet and the results appear in the green bar chart above.  The soybeans ranked first, corn was second, acorns were third and grain pellets were last.  The study was conducted in the fall of the year when other natural foods like acorns were also readily available.  A recent summertime study suggests that grain pellets are a top choice in the spring and summer months providing a good source of protein for the deer.

Deer eat about 4 lbs. of food or (3% of their body weight) each day.  Like cattle, deer process their food through four connected stomachs and 65 feet of intestines.  It takes from 24 to 36 hours for food to pass completely through them.  The first and largest of these stomachs is the rumen which does not produce acid like a true stomach.  Instead, the rumen acts as a holding tank full of microbes that digest most of the plant material and make the nutrients available to the deer.  The relatively small rumen in deer requires more nutritious and easily digested forage than is required by cattle which posses a large rumen.  Consequently, deer are highly selective feeders.  Their diet consists of leaves and tender tips of many woody shrubs and vines, succulent green plants, brasses, acorns, mushrooms, aquatic plants and many other types and parts of plants within about 5 feet above the ground.  Due to their selective feeding habits, deer can change the relative abundance of plant species in a given area.  As their favorite foods become less available, their diets gradually shift to less nutritious and less preferred foods which can have an adverse affect on reproductive success.  Supplemental feeding may benefit female deer (does) and increase productivity of the local deer population.

Remember that animals can become aggressive.  Bears, squirrels, chipmunks, rabbits, raccoons, opossums, skunks, woodchucks, mice, and deer are often attracted to game feeders. Bears and raccoons can be particularly aggressive.  Laws vary from state to state on wildlife feeding issues. If you have questions or concerns about feeders for wildlife, check with your state's Department of Natural Resources or Conservation Department before taking any action.  Also, verify feeder regulations for your area with your local Game and Fish Regulatory agency.  Feeders may also attract wildlife species you may not want to feed such as bears, hogs, and squirrels.  Feeder design, placement and the type of food can help deter unwanted species.
