Spring Minerals for Deer

Spring is in the air, and with the new season comes the long-awaited warmer temperatures and lots of new growth. For deer hunters, growing season means much more than green grass and new leaves. Spring is when whitetail deer begin to develop their antlers for the upcoming season.

Many hunters believe that the time to feed deer minerals to improve their general health and increase antler growth is during the latter part of summer before the fall hunting season begins. Unfortunately, this assumption is false, and hunters miss out on the most crucial time of year for improving deer health. A whitetail doe needs a boost in her mineral intake as she prepares to give birth to her young later in the spring. As for the males, they need an increase in mineral intake during late winter and early spring, when the first signs of antler growth begin to appear as a spring flower. To get the most bang for your buck this fall, now is the time to start using Big and J’s Headrush.

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

Because a deer’s body mass and strength suffer after the rut, the need for a mineral boost is vital. Add to that the need for more nutrients to start growing your new antlers, and it’s easy to see why spring is the most crucial time for hunters to supply them with the necessary Big and J’s Headrush minerals.

Headrush is packed with bioavailable trace elements that a deer’s newly developed antlers crave during the spring. Big and J have added a lot of vital calcium to boost antler growth, which deer cannot find in their natural environment. To ensure deer return to their mineral sites frequently, Headrush has the same powerful, far-reaching scent as Big and J’s popular BB2.

With the increased aroma of BB2 and the added salt that deer naturally love, Headrush will not only help add inches of bone, but the aroma and flavor will keep deer close while you literally toy with their heads.
