If you can’t seem to find success with your food plots or maybe you’re over run with weeds and can’t win, you can always look at this way:

“What is a weed? A plant whose virtues have never been discovered.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson 

Or, instead, you can optimize the plants you’re gonna plant — those that have already been discovered — with the assistance of these fine products.

Ani Logics Mineral Dirt 180

Studies of deer across the country show that macro-minerals like calcium and phosphorus (the ones that are always the focus of discussions) are rarely deficient in white-tailed deer. But key micro-minerals such as copper, zinc, selenium and manganese, are almost always deficient in the livers and circulating blood of deer. Studies reveal that supplementation with these minerals, such as with Ani Logics’ Mineral Dirt 180, has been shown to increase antler growth. Ani-Logics’ use of chelated minerals, in which minerals are bound to a protein, helps increase absorption in the body by up to 70 percent. This makes these minerals more available and useful to the deer. Mineral Dirt® 180 also contains Ani-Shield TX4® Technology, designed to promote whitetail deer health and antler growth. MSRP: $20.99
