Default Anyone use Record Rack Deer & Elk feed?

Going set up a gravity feeder next week and bought the Record Rack deer and elk feed. I bought sacks of corn to mix with it. Your opinions and reviews good and bad would be greatly appreciated and appreciated.

I used 1 sack of it last spring/early summer here on the farm in Zachary. I set it up in a gravity feeder on a heavily used trail that's actually a funnel running along the bayou with pasture on other side of bayou and hardwoods on opposite side of trail. The trail is loaded with briars, blackberries, and privet. I had more pics and videos of the deer eating their natural forage than the record rack. I also mixed corn with it but coons ate more than the deer did.

You have to get them use to it. Cut it with feed they are use to getting, and gradually let the pellets take over. We don't feed on our property, but if I didn't have the available acreage to plant it would be different. Use to hunt a place in eastern Texas, and we feed them that and had good results from it.

We use it with success but we find that they don't stay and eat a lot at one time but come more often.

I used it when I hunted in Alabama. Deer used it most late late July, August, and September until acorns started falling. Like others have said, when natural browse is prevelant and lush (spring/early summer), they don't eat it as much. They don't eat any feed super well then unless the population is above land capacity. As the days get real hot and the natural browse get dried out and more woody, they get hungry and will hammer it. Good idea to cut it with corn. We placed corn and the feed side by side once. Corn went untouched. Mixing it helped keep cost down.

Used it with Boss Buck feeder. Took a while before the deer figured out what it was. Not sure if it was the feeder or the feed. But coons sure loved it. Had to stop cause the coons were eating most of it. Just got some offset legs and will try it again this summer. On a good note I have some protein-fed fat *** coons. I set some coon traps and caught about 8 of them suckers. But that didn't make a dent.
