I have come across 2 hundred pounds of brown rice. I have put some aside for myself but was wondering if deer would eat it if I spread it?
Why is that? You are comparing avians to ungelates ?? Just wondered how you drew that conclusion.I would suggest finding another use for it. I suspect it would cause the same problems for deer that it does for birds.
Hundreds of thousands of ducks and geese(and other birds) eat the left overs from flooded rice fields every year. Nothing bad ever happens. That myth was started by Ann Landers a buncha years ago. And, for what its worth, Alka Seltzer won't explode sea gulls either(personal knowledge... )I would suggest finding another use for it. I suspect it would cause the same problems for deer that it does for birds.
I've already convinced myself that I'm right, so I don't need to prove it to myself. Heck, maybe I'm wrong, but I'm quite certain that the absorption rate for rice is much greater than corn. I still don't think they'll like it, but it'll be one heck of a bird feeder.you do that magis
Not to hijack the thread, ( but I'll do it anyways)I am going to put a few small piles out. I spoke with a local biologist and she said rice should have roughly the same effect on digestion as cattle corn.
as far as where I got the rice, I am what you call a prepper. Which I highly recommend in these uncertain times. nuff said:shhh:
Now I wonder teriaki or no tariaki?
