I Just wonderd how much protein others have gone through this year? as well as how long their feeders last before having to be filled again? I have 5 - 2000 pound feeders and as of last week have gone through 31,000 pounds of feed. Right now I am having to fill my feeders every 3 to 3 1/2 weeks. Need some rain in the worst way!!

120,000 pounds of feed and it's still June???

What kind of protein are you feeding? Even at $7 per 50# bag, that's $16,000+ just for protein.

We have a smaller tract of land and it's not dense with deer. 2nd year feeding with free feed / spinners.

Spinners = Soy/Corn

Free Choice = 2/3 protein (17 or 18%) and 1/3 soy.
