Wild Rivers Whitetails has been feeding Purina® AntlerMax® Diets exclusively on their farm since 2004. In 2011, they grew a deer named “Ballistic” that scored 561 Boone and Crockett. To the best of everyone’s knowledge, it was the highest scoring deer for the 2011 antler growing season.

With the help of Purina® AntlerMax® Diets, “Ballistic” was the highest scoring deer for the 2011 antler growing season.

The Boone and Crockett scoring method is the single most well-known method for scoring white-tailed deer antlers. It does a very good job at measuring key antler parameters, looking at the following factors — mass (circumference), beam length, tine length, and inside spread. Under this system, heavier antlers have higher mass measurements than thin-horned racks, longer beams are better, more and longer tines add inches, and bucks with larger inside spreads get added inches and higher scores.

Purina® AntlerMax® Deer Chow contains our AntlerMax® Protein & Mineral Technology. It promotes antler growth by improving protein quality with ideal amounts and ratios of vitamins and minerals for optimal antler growth. Purina® AntlerMax® Deer Chow also helps milk production, milk quality and strong, healthy fawns with high survival rates.

Purina is proud to be a partner with Wild Rivers Whitetails located in Fence, Wisconsin. Gary Nelson, owner of Wild Rivers Whitetails, stated “There are 561 reasons why we feed Purina® AntlerMax® products to our deer, beginning with optimum nutrition, great customer service, and knowledgeable professional technical support.”
