In 2006, our owner and founder, Seth Wagoner, set forth to create all-natural high-quality year-round mineral feeds and potent edible attractants that were affordable to the everyday hunter yet powerful enough for professional outfitters. His goal was to create products that do what they promise, keep prices low and most importantly, provide wildlife with high-quality nutrition without fillers or processed by-products. After 8 long years of research and product testing, Ugly Buck was born!
Our products weren't created in a lab nor tested only on caged animals. Our products are the result of long hard days in the muddy swamps of the southern United States, months of tracking through wide open country and countless hours of gathering feedback from wildlife breeders, passionate hunters, and professional outfitters.
Ugly Buck manufactures our products using only American sourced materials and ingredients. We work closely with several veteran outreach organizations and employ as many veterans as possible. Even the ink on our labels is from AMERICAN COMPANIES!
At Ugly Buck, we understand the significance of the hunter and how our actions help shape the laws and policies put forth by the hundreds of Wildlife Resource organizations across the world. The use of low-quality feeds or mass amounts of corn damages the overall health of the herd, leading to malnutrition. This dangerous result gives fuel to the politicians and inexperienced lawmakers to battle the importance of hunters and make claims against the benefit of a high-quality wildlife feed.
One of the most common mistakes made by hunters, outfitters and wildlife breeders is the use of poor, low nutrient feeds and edible attractants or the reliance on corn. Some of the largest most well-known brands in the elk and whitetail feed community are packed full of fillers and harsh ingredients imported from non-reputable sources.
In the end, the banning of high-quality wildlife feeds hurts more than just the herds that depend on them. It helps to destroy the hunter's lifestyle and erase our traditions passed down from our fathers and their fathers. Hunters are the largest and most valuable asset to wildlife management and conservation. We must do all things possible to combat the negative thinking and the misinformation about proper wildlife management.
