It looks interesting but I'll be REALLY impressed if they can get it where hogs won't eat it. Most interesting thing to me is the fact that it seems to be moisture proof. I wonder if that's true. Pretty expensive stuff but I would probably buy a bag if it was available around here - just to try it out.

I would think hogs would still eat it

I think i would rather pay $9.75/50 and lose some to the coons

That would make my fill ups $324 instead of $175!

We feed protein year round and have cameras working year round. Not one pic ever in over five years of a coon messing with the feeder. They will be on ground under it from time to time, but not one pic of them hanging on it or anything.

I know this is an old thread but wanted to let you guys know about this product. I have been using this feed for almost 2 years now and it is the best feed I have ever used. Your deer #'s will go up and you will hold deer. Bucks can't get enough of it and you don't have to worry about feeding coons. I will have horn growth pics later this year.

Bumping this up to get more reviews. Maybe I'll have a review of my own soon, I put some out in a gravity feeder a couple days ago. We shall see how "coon proof" it is and if deer like it.

I didn't think $19 for 50lb bag was too bad considering Big&J BB2 supplement I've been trying is same price for only 20lbs.

$19 a bag isn't bad...if you're feeding a few bags a month, but it's a different story when you feed 3000# a month like I do.

A few bags doesnt do anything for it's intended purpose of protein...and not an attractant

$9-10 is alot nicer

their target market has to be the guy that buys 1 bag and dumps it out.
They say in their video that when it rains on the pile it crusts over.
I feed 8000# of record rack protien now.
No way i could ever justify paying $19.00 a bag

I was under the impression it was both a protein supplement along with minerals. Not just a protein alone (like Record Rack 20% that I also use in a separate feeder nearby). Hence the reason I compared it to BB2 since it seems to have both protien and minerals. Is this the case with this Deer365 supplement?

First year with Deer 365. We have some interesting things happening on trail cams. Coons are not interested at all. The trail cams on the location that was poured directly on the ground has hogs all over it. How ever when we put it out in a feed trough no hogs toughed it. What the deer spill out on the ground the hogs eat it up. No pics of hogs eating from trough.

My bachelor groups of bucks love it. And hogs love it also. Put it out of reach of hogs or in a feed pen and deer will destroy it at least in East texas. I repeat coons will not eat it

Even if it does work and coons leave it alone you are paying over twice the cost for your feed.. so you have to ask, do you think Coons are stealing 50% of your protein? If not why spend twice as much. If they are getting that much, why spend twice as much every time you fill? For what the difference in cost is to fill a 2000# feeder once you can buy a set of CoonHoods and be done with it... what am I missing?
