Default protein for deer

has any one feed tubs of 20% cow protein was looking at tsc and they have a pretty good sized tub for around $50.00 Would deer eat it? I don't have any protein feeders Thinking about trying a tub of it. I know that I can feed protein through my corn feeders but think this would last longer. Thanks for any input.

I was curious about this a couple of years ago so I set a camera up on one. Never had one picture of a deer at it.

We use troughs. Deer eat out of them no problem. We put range cubes in them

My buddy bought one a few years ago, to try, it was a waste of money.

think it depends on how hungry your deer are. I have feed the tubs and cattle cubes and my deer hit them both hard. is entertaining to watch them chew on the bigger cattle cubes.
