What’s Needed to
Maximize Antler Growth

  • The mineral content of whitetail deer antlers have been found to be composed of:
    Calcium: 19.01%
    Phosphorus 10.13%
    Magnesium 1.09%These ratios are comparable to those found in bone. A good mineral should supplement these nutrients, in addition to the amounts found in the basal diet or habitat, to provide these main, and/or “macro” minerals, in approximately the correct ratio. Big Buck Mineral® has these essential nutrients where as most other brands appear to have little to no nutritional value.
  • Salt. Deer minerals should have 25-50% salt. Higher levels are a cheap carrier, leaving too little room for Calcium, Phosphorus, etc, and lower levels tend to be ignored by deer, unless diluted with salt by the user.
  • Trace Minerals. Antlers also contain various other minerals, including zinc and manganese. Research shows that deer are able to pull Calcium and Phosphorus from their bone for use in antler growth in season, and replace it in the bone during the times of year when antlers are not growing. But that same research has been unable to find that deer can resorb the trace minerals needed for antler growth from their bones. Big Buck provides these nutrients in balance, while others have little, none, or imbalanced levels.
  • Vitamins. Vitamin D is important for Calcium & Phosphorus metabolism. Only half the competitors lists any
