Tips From the Expert

Feeding White Tail Deer

There’s a few things you should know.

Buck

Feeding corn or hay to deer can do more harm than good. It will bring on Rumenitis – an inflamation of the rumen often caused by Carbohydrate engorgment.

Feed facts!

  1. Corn in the field contains up to 50% moisture while corn from the mill ONLY has 14%. Its harder for your deer to digest corn that you put out for them during the winter months without having adequate moisture.
  2. If adequate moisture is not in the feed that you are giving your local herd then Rumenitis may occur. Feed may ferment in the Rumen before being fully digested, often putting deer into a coma and killing the deer your feeding.
  3. During the Canadian winter months Whitetail Deers water consumption drops dramatically once Lakes, Rivers and Creeks freeze up. Typically in Janurary through March. If your feeding you local herd straight corn with a lower moisture content, your deers Rumen is having to work harder to digest that feed. This will do numerous chain reactions in the body of the whitetail deer.
  4. First – the deer will go and bed with a full stomach. Being a Rumenant animal (4 stomach of digestion) they regurgitate thier food numberous times to break it down and to get out all the needed energy, carbohydrates, fat, protein as well as fibre out of the food. With food digested on a daily basis the deers stomach create heat. (keeping them warm)
    Second – While the deer is regurgitating that food it is thinking that everything is fine and that it trying to burn out the normal winter months and waiting until spring but in fact, the moisture level is not in the feed to digest the corn that it had ingested hours before and now is robbing the body of much needed moisture in order to digest it.
    Third - Now the corn is past the digest period, the deer still knows that it has feed in its stomach and is probably starting to feel some pain. Fermentation starts to happen in the Rumen. This is called “Rumenitis”.
  5. Bad toxins are sent through the body of the deer. The deers body reacts and could cause coma and even death. It often takes 12-18 hours for this to happen so you won’t know whats going on.
    Feeding your deer hay/clover/alfalfa mixtures during the winter could be harmful too.
  6. Whitetail deer need certain micro-organisms to break down the clovers and alfalfas. Because Whitetail deer feeding habits change daily their body adjusts to what it is eaten. If Janurary comes, its been a bad winter and you think well they where in the alfalfa field why don’t I through out a bale to help out. DONT. During that time of year moisture content is up and the deer are use to eating fresh greens and their body can slowly adapt to what they are eating but it has been found in the past that deer (especially yearling deer) don’t have this organism during the winter months to break down the feed you have given them. The deer have a full stomach of feed and don’t feel that they need to eat. Their stomach stays full because their body does not digest it, resulting in starvation. Do you want to help out naturally? Cut some fire wood for yourself and drag the limbs to a feeding area. Deer are also attracted to an area where a chainsaw has been they know what is going on.

There are feeds on the market that are sold at co-ops and local feed mills. They call them rations, and are often that. Sweepings from the floors, often the mix changes on a weekly basis and is inconsistant. you can’t control anything that you are feeding your deer. I have even seen flipped beef tags that are fermented with “deer” on the back side writen in pen. I can understand the co-op trying to make their money back but it isn’t fare to the deer.
