Default Hudsons trophy deer lick

Anyone use these? It's 14% protein and has peanuts and molasses and other stuff in it.

It's a 60 lb tub for 45 bucks... figured this would be good to have by my feeder to take place of sweet feed. the goats, aoudad, coons, and pigs would love it I'm sure, but the deer and axis might eat on it as well

Used a similar kind of big tub from TSC and it was molasses flavored. I am loaded in deer and hogs. Neither would touch it

I had a buddy try it on his place in San Angelo area, he wasn't impressed with the results. I would save your money.

I've used them on my lease at Dryden. Not sure if its the same brand, but its in a 40# bucket with molasses and peanuts all over the top. It took the deer a little to get used to it, but they liked it. The problem was I couldn't keep the wild sheep and hogs off of it. The first one lasted about 2 months. The next one lasted two weeks cuz the sheep and pigs found it.

Acco/Sportsmans Choice made a tub that was molasses based 16% protein IIRC that a lot of people fed out west years 15+ years ago. Not sure if they still make it though. IIRC they made it in a short green tub. Everyone said the deer really ate it well and it lasted well in the areas west of Hondo to Del Rio and north of Hwy 90 into West Texas.

Yep that's what this one is, that's what I figured once the goats and pigs found it would be game over. But it'll give me something to shoot atleast, and maybe feed a deer or axis or 2

I use to feed this as well. The deer in the hillcountry loved it. I am afraid the hogs will love it as though. I can't find it anymore though.

I built three feed troughs to put Rice Bran in. I am going to try three of these tubs and set them in the troughs with the bran.

Hope your deer like it. I'm going to go put mine out next weekend, but won't be able to check up on it until April

Just hope the goats and aoudad don't demolish it in a couple weeks. Then again that would give me something to shoot so maybe it's not so bad lol

Positive feed in Sealy makes a tub. I think it was $50 something. We didn't think the deer were eating them, but when we went out 3 weeeks ago they are down about a 1/4, so something is eating them. Plus positive Feed is localy family owned.

I put mine out last weekend, it got rained on and you could smell the molasses in it from a long ways off. I'm sure all the pigs and goats love me by now...

Will find out the first of April how they took to it, if the pigs didn't push it off in the brush somehow/somewhere

I saw it in the Harper feed store last month. I'm sure it would work really good. Like the already mentioned green tubs they used to make worked good. The problem is the raccoons, hogs and everything else like them to. If you elevate it some that will help keep the critters off of them a little.

Do you have any pigs or goats/rams?

I'm going to the lease next weekend so I'll find out what kind of damage the pigs did to it
