Ask ten game farms, get ten different answers. Look at the nutritional contents to see if it has what you need for your deer. If it does, then it should work fine. Purina's Antler Max is some good stuff, and it won't absorb water so fast (good for feeders in the rain), but it's pricey. Acco makes a good pellet for much less, but it doesn't have the stuff in it to shed water. What your deer prefer will be determined by them only. I've heard people say that their deer won't touch Antler Max, and I've heard others say that their deer hardly let it hit the ground before it's gone. What I suggest to you, is to buy a few different kinds that have high protein and try them out on the deer. Whatever they eat best is what I would go with. Deer can utilize about 12% protein for their bodies, and little more than that for their antlers. You don't need anything more than 20% protein. Put out some minerals for them too. Buy minerals specifically for deer. All of that should help antler growth, but don't expect miracles the first year. It takes a few years to notice any changes, and even then it's not a huge difference. Nutrition is only half of the equation.
