Inside the archery industry there is intense competition to create the best product. Retailers are swamped with hundreds of “new” products offered every year. With great pride, we announce Big & J has been voted by archery pro shops nationwide as the best feed and mineral product line for attracting and holding deer through a survey conducted by Inside Archery trade magazine.
“It is an honor to receive this prestigious award from the retail community,” said Jeremy Atkins, president of Big & J Industries. “We founded Big & J Industries with the promise to create the best deer attractant and nutritional deer feed supplements hunters could buy. This award is evidence of delivering that promise to consumers and retailers.”
Disappointed by existing deer feed on the market, Big & J Industries was established to provide specially formulated deer feed and attractant, backed by scientific research and tested by hunters to meet the highest standards and produce the largest whitetail bucks and deer herds. Big & J’s BB2 and XX formula is so powerful and desired by deer, that it not only attracts whitetails, but keeps them close and coming back for more. But, Atkins and the other hunters who found Big & J knew there were more improvements to be made to deer feed and attractants on the market.
This year Big & J released The Cube – a long range deer attractant meant to be consumed by deer – and revolutionized the world of supplemental deer “blocks.” The Cube is not a licking block, but a compressed square made out BB2’s proven formula and powerful deer attractant abililties. With a higher crude protein content (23% minimum), less filler and a long range deer attracting scent, you can be sure wherever you put it down deer will find it.
“Winning Inside Archery’s annual Best Buy Award is a great compliment,” said Atkins “But, we are not content to rest our achievements. We will continue to work hard and develop products with an innovative passion that challenges the existing deer feed products not delivering on their promises.”
If you want to put the power of Big & J to work in your deer hunting pursuits, find a Big & J dealer near you to attract the biggest bucks with the biggest bone.
Right after the rut, bucks are attracted to areas with high-quality food sources that will quickly replace weight loss after the fighting, chasing and breeding activity surrounding the rut. The only problem is, it can be scarce.
If you are not proactive in assuring the deer on your land have a high-quality feed designed to deliver proper nutrition, and by proper, we mean a scientifically proven formula of ingredients that we have come up with over years of testing to assure Big & J products are safe and effective deer attractants and supplements.
We know most hunters care about the deer herd and want the best for the animals, but too many folks are unaware of the complexity of deer nutrition. They place 50 pounds of corn out, and think the work is done. Sure the deer will eat the corn, but in reality, feeding deer straight cracked corn is unhealthy due to its high starch content.
To avoid problems that may arise from feeding deer straight corn, we recommend adding Big & J’s XX nutrional deer feed supplement to provide a maximum level of nutrition. XX serves as an excellent addition for whitetail managers already using corn or other feed by combining a high concentration of proteins from processed grains and refined soybean oil and increased mineral content that includes calcium and zinc.
For land managers and hunters looking for all the key ingredients in one bag, the formula of BB2 deer supplement will provide deer with the essential nutrients they need and crave after the strenuous rut. BB2 is a nutritionally well-balanced supplement and deer attractant that promotes health in deer herds during the winter months.
Hunters who still have a tag to fill will find the long deer attractant power of The Cube mineral supplement block to be helpful in their late season hunting pursuits. If you are looking for a block that will supplement and attract deer after the rut, check out The Cube. It lasts longer than other blocks on the market, will not mold and is meant to be consumed by the deer, not licked like other rock-hard blocks offering no aroma to attract deer. Hunters wanting to cut down on human contamination in an area will appreciate the long life of The Cube – especially in the late season when hunting pressure is high.
Although the peak of the 2012 rut may be in the books around most of the nation, the deer are not done traveling. Bucks will travel a long distance to find a good source of nutrition that will boost their health before the stresses of a long winter arrives. Keep your deer herd healthy and on your property by feeding them the nutrition they need and crave with Big & J deer feed and supplements.
Unless you planted rows of corn to specifically hunt over, chances are it has been harvested already and the deer that were buried in it are now looking for habitat that the cornfields once provided them. Big & J deer supplements will attract deer that are relocating from the food and cover that vanished with the standing corn.
Food is what drives deer movement. Even during the rut, the does will be looking for food and the bucks will be looking for does. Once the corn is gone, deer will be searching for another food source. It may be acorn flats, neighboring agricultural fields that have not been harvested yet, food plots or areas you have placed Big & J deer feed. Simply put, deer will be looking for new areas of food and cover once the corn is gone. Attract moving deer to areas you hunt with the long range scent attractant power of BB2, XX and The Cube.
After the corn is shelled, many of our customers tell us they start getting pictures of bucks they saw in the summer again. They thought these deer had disappeared. The deer didn’t disappear, but were hiding in the corn. After it was gone, they relocated to areas that will serve their nutritional needs. Other customers say they will see deer they have never seen on the property before. Post-harvest is a great opportunity to attract bucks from bordering properties that are looking for a food source to replace the corn, and because Big & J products are long range attractants, there is a good chance deer will flock to your supplements. Once they try it, they will be hooked and continue to use the area.
An early corn harvest is good and bad for deer hunters. Standing corn will hold deer on your property but they are hard to hunt when they are hiding in the large fields. When it is removed, the deer are forced to the timber where they can be hunted easier as long as there is enough food. Give the deer on your property a backup food source and begin to attract more bucks when the corn is gone. Big & J deer feed placed around cover is not only a great substitute for cornfields, but it will also attract deer where you can hunt them more effectively this fall.
