Spring Minerals for Deer

Spring is in the air, and with the new season comes the highly anticipated warmer temperatures and plenty of new growth. For deer hunters, the growing season equates to much more than green grass and new leaves. Spring is when whitetail bucks begin growing their antlers for the upcoming season.

Many hunters believe that the time to feed minerals to deer to improve their overall health and increase antler growth is during the latter portion of summer before the fall hunting season gets underway. Sadly, this assumption is false, and hunters miss out on the most crucial time of year to improve the health of deer. A whitetail doe needs a boost in her mineral intake while preparing to give birth to her fawns later in the spring. As for bucks, they need an increase in mineral intake during the tail end of winter and the early spring when the first signs of antler growth begin popping through like a spring flower. To get the most out of your bucks this fall now is the time to start using Big and J’s Headrush

Deer need minerals to thrive; phosphorous and calcium are two of the most important for antler growth and bone strength. Headrush from Big and J has these minerals and the key trace minerals such as zinc, copper, and manganese. Not only are these minerals important for antler growth, but studies have shown that a healthier doe will produce more milk for young fawns. Headrush becomes a one-stop shop for the minerals the entire herd needs to thrive, not just bucks for antler growth. Headrush is also bioavailable, meaning that the trace minerals are readily absorbed by the deer rather than excreted.

Because a buck’s body mass and strength suffer after the rut, the need for an increase in minerals is vital. Add to that the need for more nutrients to begin growing their new antlers, and it is easy to see why spring is the most crucial time for hunters to provide them with the needed minerals from Big and J’s Headrush.

Headrush is packed with bioavailable trace minerals that a buck’s newly developing antlers crave during the spring. Big and J have added a high amount of calcium vital for increased antler growth, which is unavailable for deer to find in their natural environments. To ensure deer return to your mineral sites often, Headrush has the same powerful, long-range aroma as the popular BB2 from Big and J. 

With the increased aroma of BB2 and the added salt that deer naturally love, Headrush will not only aid in adding inches of bone but the aroma and flavor will keep the bucks close by while it literally messes with their head.
