About 10 tons and 4 tons of cottonseed. That's just because I can't keep up while I'm gone for work

If I had a choice I would go food plots over protein feeders every day of the week - we run cameras on our feeders and at the best a deer will come to the feeder twice per day and be there less than 5 minutes each time. How much can they really ingest in that short of a time?

On the other hand, deer are born to browse. If they have a food plot to graze on they will stay out there for hours and ingest much more than they ever could or would at a feeder.

We are in south texas so unless you have irrigation (which we do not) a food plot is just too iffy - but they are the ticket IMO

I have a little different results on my lease. I feed protein free choice for an hour and a half each morning and each evening. My cameras show deer showing up and waiting for the feed to dispense, then once it feeds, they show to be eating for most of an hour. They'll eat a bit then wander off and come back a bit later for another bite. They repeat the back and forth until they've had their fill.

I just have one protein feeder out. They are hitting it pretty hard now, about 500 lbs or more a month. I know I am feeding a lot of coons, but I am beginning to put a dent in them.

that is interesting - we have free choice and have cameras on the feeders. Our cameras are set to trigger every 5 minutes - most deer are gone by the second pictures and almost always gone by the third picture

2000lb feeders, about to refill them for the 4th time. I didn't fill them the 1st time until mid-Feb and haven't been good about not letting them go dry. Otherwise add another 1-2 fillings.
