Why Does Trophy Rock Work?
The more time you spend hunting, the more you come to respect deer. When you go out scouting you don't just see developing antlers, you see a developing herd. You come to understand that in the survival-of-the-fittest world deer live in, small changes in the environment can bring about huge changes in the herd. That's why so many hunters are Trophy Rock fans for life – it's a small change with a huge payoff.
Deer Need Minerals
Just like you and me, deer need nutrients and minerals to stay healthy. Unlike you and me, deer can't just pop a daily multi-vitamin, and if they don't find what their bodies need on your land they'll leave to find it somewhere else. The minerals in Trophy Rock improve muscle function, bone development, digestion, lactation, and gestation. In other words, Trophy Rock can improve overall herd health.
Deer need some key minerals, like calcium and sodium, in large amounts. Trophy Rock provides these macro minerals required for deer health.
CalciumCalcium combines with phosphorus to help make hard crystal-like substances that create the foundation for stronger antler, bone, and teeth.
PhosphorousFound mostly in the animal's bones, phosphorous also helps regulate the release of energy.
PotassiumPotassium helps deer maintain chemically balanced digestive systems and form electrolytes in body fluid.
MagnesiumMagnesium helps turn food into energy and helps the deer's body use calcium efficiently.
SodiumThe basis of most salt blocks and foundation of mineral supplements, sodium naturally helps the body absorb other nutrients.
SulfurSulfur helps animals digest food and is important in developing tendons and cartilage.
Trophy Rock also provides micro minerals in a naturally balanced ratio. Without this balance, micro minerals can become toxic to deer.
IronMuch of the iron is used in the blood, with the rest stored in bone marrow, antlers, and other organs.
CopperCopper deficient animals can have weak hearts and vulnerable immune systems.
ZincZinc builds new cells and is critical during antler development, pregnancy, lactation, and healing from injuries.
ManganeseHelping break down carbohydrates and fat for energy, manganese also plays an important role in strong bone and cartilage.
CobaltA mineral found in vitamin B-12, cobalt helps animals digest feed.
IodineIodine helps regulate muscle tone and energy production and is important during breeding.
The Bottom Line
Deer herds seem driven by instinct to find the minerals they need to survive. Trophy Rock provides these minerals in a natural form, making it easy for you to supplement the health of the deer in your area and keep them nearby. If you care not just about big antlers but about healthy deer and healthy herds, there is no natural mineral supplement better than Trophy Rock.
