Deer eat a variety of foods throughout the year; however, in winter months food in their natural habitat is scarce. Whether feeding deer to supplement their diet for the winter or providing feed for a deer farm, you want to choose a type of food that they are most likely to eat. One food option is sweet feed. Deer are highly attracted to the smell and will eat it as long as it's available.
Check your state laws regarding deer feeding. It is illegal in some states to feed deer for supplementary diet purposes, but legal to feed them for research or deer farms.
Put the sweet feed in the deer feeder.
Place the feeder in areas frequented by deer.
