Deer like to feed on food high in carbohydrates, especially in the winter. A deer feed recipe they will love consists of a few simple ingredients you can find at any cattle feed store. The main factor to keep in mind is how many deer you want to feed and how much you're willing to spend. Deer go through feed very quickly and filling a feeder every day can be costly.
Add equal parts corn (you can use cracked kernels, whole kernels or ground-up corn) and whole oats in a large bucket and mix thoroughly. Wear gloves if desired.
Pour molasses on top of the mixture. Add 1/4 cup of molasses for every 2-1/2 half cups of corn and oats.
Mix until the ingredients stick together slightly..
In warmer months, add soybeans to the mixture to provide extra protein and nutrients.
