Q: Will feeding deer corn in the fall and winter will help them grow bigger antlers next spring?

A: NO. It’s a biological fact: corn lacks the nutrients necessary for strong antler growth. For the most part, the only nutrient requirement deer have that corn provides is digestible energy. Just remember: “if you feed too much corn, you won’t grow horn”. So feeding corn to deer in the fall and winter might help them survive, but it won’t help them thrive. In fact, feeding deer too much corn too fast can actually founder or even kill them! AntlerMax Rut & Conditioning Deer Chow 16 is the ideal fall and winter body conditioning diet so deer stay in good shape to grow big antlers next spring.
