Brownville's Food Pantry for Deer

My father has thoroughly enjoyed feeding deer for 18+ years. The first 10+ years my father lived in Medford, Maine.  He has gone from putting out 20lbs to 400+ pounds of oats per day throughout the winter.  A few bad winters over the last decade have diminished the deer population! 

When moving to Brownville my dad continued to do what he loves to do, feed the deer.  Within a week, there were 20 deer coming for dinner. My dad had to adjust the amount of oats to adequately feed the deer.  A month later there were 40-50 deer coming.  10 years later my dad has over 175+ (hard to count the exact amount). Each deer requires 3-4 pounds of oats to sustain their health. We are asking for your support in helping this very dedicated man help the deer survive another winter.

For the past 18 years my family has had the pleasure of watching the deer play and run. Seeing my dad's happiness through doing such a kind and selfless act is something we all cherish. 

Please help "Brownville's Food Pantry For Deer." Receiving just Social Security has gotten too hard for him to maintain the growth of the herd. Please visit our Facebook page "Brownville's Food Pantry for Deer" to keep up to date with the herd.  We also have a youtube channel.  You can search Brownville's Food Pantry for Deer on youtube or you can find a link on the facebook page.  There are four camera angles on youtube, including night vision.  Also check out the link on the bottom of the page to see a segment from Channel 2's 207.  Any donation is appreciated and the deer and I thank you so much.     

The oats are purchased locally, supporting Maine business.  This year over $7000 worth of oats will be purchased.  All donations will go towards the purchase of oats and camera maintenance.

Thank you so much for your support and donations throughout the years.  For your viewing pleasure, this year, we have added another camera and updated equipment.  We hope you enjoy this upcoming season and thank you again!  A special thank you to ProTech Solutions for all your technical support.
