We recommend a free choice gravity feeder. This type of feeder will deliver Grow the Bone without failure. Free choice gravity feeders allow for maximum consumption. Maximum consumption equals maximum results. If you cannot afford a gravity feeder, learn how to build your own by watching our “Use it to feed” video on our homepage.
If whitetail deer have already been exposed to Grow the Bone, a passing shower will not greatly affect the attractant. However, if you are using Grow the Bone on new property and there is a heavy rain, the product can spoil. For maximum scent and flavor transfer, very little water resistance was built into Grow the Bone. Make sure you pay attention to the weather forecast before using this attractant.
Great care should be taken when selecting a feeder location. Select a site that you can access without disturbing your deer. Avoid accessing your feeder where bedding areas will be disturbed. Travel to and from your feeder site like you would access your tree stand. Prime spots for feeder locations are natural staging areas between bedding areas and final destination spots, like agricultural fields and food plots. This will encourage deer to visit the feed site during daylight hours.
Yes. Adding Grow the Bone to your current feed Corn/Pellets will greatly increase the consumption rate of your feed. We also recommend the use of a trail camera at your feed sites. This is a great way to inventory your deer herd.
For attraction purposes, we recommend adding Grow the Bone at a rate of 6lbs per 300lbs of Corn or Pellets.
For increased herd health and antler growth, we recommend using Grow the Bone at a rate of 6lbs to 25lbs of Corn and 6lbs of Grow the Bone to 150lbs of Pellets.
Yes. Grow the Bone is made from all natural ingredients and attractants. If you have whitetail deer where you live, Grow the Bone will work as described. Grow the Bone has been extensively tested from Mexico to Canada with outstanding results. However, if baiting is considered illegal in your state, then you cannot use Grow the Bone deer attractant. If you are unsure of the rules in your area, please contact your local state game and wildlife office for the rules in your area.
How you use Grow the Bone to fill your tag is only limited by your own creativity. However, we have found several methods that are tried and true.
Method A. If you are using Grow the Bone in your feeders…
Grow the Bone will concentrate your deer in close proximity to your feeder sites. In early season, your bigger bucks will dominate your feeder sites. This is a great way to inventory your deer herd and start a hit list for the upcoming season. You can hunt directly over your feed sites at this time of year.
As the rut approaches, the bucks will split up and start cruising for the first hot does of the season. Your trail cameras will show that the feed sites will now be dominated by does and younger bucks. At this time of year and throughout the rut, hunt down wind of your deer feeders. The bigger bucks will be cruising downwind, scent checking these feed sites for hot does. Put out about 1 to 2lbs of Grow the Bone in a heaping pile in front of your new stand site right where you want your buck to stop. A deadly tactic at this setup is to call and or rattle late morning when the biggest bucks are on their feet.
Late season when the rut is tapering off, check your trail cameras for your big bucks returning to the feeders. The bucks’ bodies will be craving the vitamins and nutrients in Grow the Bone this time of year. This is a great time to hunt the travel trails between the bedding areas and the feed sites. In some cases, you can actually start setting up directly on the feeders again. The bucks keep their movement to a minimum this time of year. They will spend a great deal of time eating at the feeders once they arrive. The bucks may not be bedded too far from the feeders, so be careful accessing your stands.
Method B. If you are not using Grow the Bone in a feeder, you can still be very successful…
If possible, pre-bait your hunting location several days to a week in advance. This will allow the deer to key in on the Grow the Bone. Just freshen up the site the day of the hunt. If you can’t pre-bait your hunting area, that’s okay. The deer will be attracted to and eat the product the first time they encounter it. We recommend putting out several heaping piles about 1 to 2lbs in size where you want the deer to stop for a shot. Select a stand site where deer come to feed naturally. A group of hardwood trees or an isolated feeding area works great. This is a natural place for deer to stage and eat. They are most comfortable here and they are looking to feed in these areas. Deer typically reach these areas before dark and stage there until venturing out in open feeding areas after dark. This is also a great place to intercept the deer coming back to bed in the mornings.
We recommend using Grow the Bone as a part of your year round management plan. Feeding Grow the Bone to your does when they are pregnant and nursing is just as important to your herd’s health as feeding it to your bucks when they are growing their horns. You will be amazed at the jump in the antler size of your young bucks by doing this.
Grow the Bone can also be used as an attractant during the season or before a hunt, to help attract whitetail deer directly to your tree stand or ground blind. Just make sure to put Grow the Bone out a few days prior to your hunt, so that the deer become exposed to the product and keep coming back for more!

Grow the Bone was developed over 15 years ago. It has been used exclusively by some of the top outfitters and guides in the country during this time. It was released to the public for the first time in 2011.
Deer have up to 297 million olfactory receptors in the nose, plus a vomeronasal organ which also detects scents and odors inside of their mouth. As a comparison, dogs have up to 220 million olfactory receptors in the nose, plus a vomeronasal organ. Humans only have up to 5 million olfactory receptors in the nose, and no vomeronasal organ.
Deer have a home range just large enough to meet all of their needs. Traveling long distances is bad for their survival (they burn excessive energy and increase exposure to predators). When the deer habitat provides their food needs, deer will be satisfied with as little as 20-30 acres.
