What is everyone seeing with the start of protein? Are they hitting it hard or not really on it yet?

We're feeding Double Down and they're hitting it so hard where we are that it is difficult to keep the feeders full

Bosque County, supplemental feed is getting hammered in the tune of approximately 400# every 5 days.

Tom Green County, seems like they never stop hammering feed...ha ha

I hope this doesn't turn into another DD commercial!!

I have cotton seed out and protein, they aren't touching the seed but hitting the protein at a couple feeders. Lots of fiber out there right now so that might explain them not eating the seed much. Now that I have the coon problem somewhat contained they are eating more of the protein.
I had 12 coons on one feeder few days ago.

did i mention i hate coons?????

We can't keep our cottenseed feeders full right now. We put out protein last week, but they haven't ate much yet. This is in Atascosa County. We are feeding L&E.

I started my protein last week of December and they hit it hard until I put out cottonseed 2nd week of January. They worked over the cottonseed pretty good up until about two weeks ago. There is a lot of winter weeds now and I believe they are concentrating on those now. Overall right now taking about 3 weeks to empty a cottonseed basket and almost the same for a #1200 protein feeder. Of course all depends on how many deer you are carrying.

Do any of you guys have coons in your protein? they are already hammering me. I saw a thread about Coon hoods a few months ago, seem like they should work but havent heard anything since. Do any of you guys have experience with them?

Thanks for the reply. I think I'm going to have to get set of my own to slow these coons down!
