Feeding Directions

Best Results
Feed to whitetail deer, mule deer and exotic deer as a supplement to native habitat or pasture. For best results feed free choice in a covered trough or self-feeder. If fed to deer in confinement or forage becomes limiting, supply good quality legume hay. Feed Purina® Antler Advantage® Deer 20 ARS Deer Feed during the antler-growing season.
This feed contains added copper and should not be fed to sheep.  Store in a dry, well-ventilated area protected from rodents and insects. Do not feed moldy or insect-infested feed to animals as it may cause illness, performance loss or death. USE ONLY AS DIRECTED
Regulations for the feeding of game animals vary from state to state. Check with your State Game and Fish Department or the Department of Natural Resources for guidelines on the proper use of this product.
Management Practices
  1. A feeding program is only as effective as the management practices. Actual results can vary depending upon feed intake, environmental conditions, and the quality of the management practices.
  2. This feed is a supplement, not a complete feed. Animals in confinement may be fed this product, but only when fed with free-choice access to adequate hay or roughage. Animals in confinement should not be fed this product as their sole diet without access to hay or roughage.
  3. Deer, elk or other game in confinement should not have free access to corn because eating too much corn at one time can lead to digestive upsets.
  4. Provide a source of fresh, clean water and Purina® AntlerMax® Premium Deer Mineral at all times.
  5. When changing rations, the change should be made gradually, increasing the amount of new feed and decreasing the amount of old feed over a period of 7-10 days.
  6. Consult your veterinarian for recommended herd health and parasite control programs.
