I see too often a hunter pouring a bag of attractant into a feed bin or spreading corn and apples on the ground and a sweet syrup. I literally cringe because one of the reason why I enjoy hunting so much is that I am eating an animal that is completely grass fed without any chemicals and genetically modified feed!
With how often people bait, Makes me wonder if the game I killed has been eating all this non natural bait too. The animals people ate throughout evolution roamed free and ate grass. I want to continue to eat “real” food.
Studies show The way animals are fed can have a major effect on the nutrient composition of the meat. Look below on “why?”.
DO buy Organic/NonGMO, OMRI, pesticide free, artificial free ingredients!
