Our deer have picked up greatly this month. We went from a 4.5ton a month avg. To around 7tons this month. I would be we will see a major decrease this month with the heat finally kicking in. Ranch is still super green also

Our 1000 lb feeders are empty. We filed them
3 weeks ago in south Texas. Deer are hitting them and the cottonseed hard at our place right now.

Our deer are addicted to protein and if you feed free range they will eat 1k pound in anout 10 days no matter how much rain we have had, any time of year. Del rio area.

I chipped in on this one a while back - and it has been up and down since. Once the heat set in, they started pounding the protein again. It has been a race to keep up on the feeders. We are on cycle 5 of 3k fills and getting ready to go again in llano/Mason county. Got new water troughs next to a couple of the feeders.

Anyone made any mineral slicks or had some good response to mineral thus far?

Hitting them hard right now. They also seem to be working over a world class crop of partridge peas.

We use food plots as the primary supplemental feeding but started two protein feeders up by the farm house. One is a 55 gal drum feeder and one is a 400 lb protein feeder and they are lasting about a couple of weeks at the most. They are feeding pretty good at the feeders. I built a pond this yr and used alfalfa pellets for organic fertilization on the pond. I have 250 lbs of the alfalfa pellets left over from the pond fertilization and was wondering if I can add these to the protein feed? has anyone had any luck using alfalfa pellets for protein feed?

Filled ours in Mills county last weekend and they were all empty except one and it had about 300lb left. It had been 3 weeks between fillings and we have 6 feeders that hold a total of 6,900 lb of protein.
I expect most will be empty before I can get back out to fill them on the 8th.

Up until a month ago they were hitting it lighter than usual

I have never seen deer eat the protein like they have this season. They are leaving the cottonseed and hitting the protein hard. We fed 39 tons this month on the place I get to hunt. Excited about this season already!

Well our consumtption is up 25-30% YTD. Part of that is limiting our doe harvest last year but I feel like the deer are spending more time there too. Not uncommon to see one buck on camera stay at a feeder for 15 minutes at a time. Also, I wonder if having all the creeks, ponds and low areas full of water is affording them more time to eat and less time traveling to get water.

Seems like our deer have finally slacked off over the last couple of weeks...a couple of members only had to add a bag to each of our 14 feeders...this is pretty normal this time of year as we are finally seeing temps above 100 consistently..
