I may be way off, but I bet if the deer density is as high as you say you're going to need a protein feeder about 3 times that size to keep it from going empty in less than a week. We've fed 20% protein now for 3 years in East TX with a very, very low deer density and it's nothing for them to eat 300lbs in a week during the spring and late summer.
