At our ranch we put out broken bales of alfalfa. The axis will eat every stick of it they can. In the pastures that are mainly whitetail, the whitetails will hit it and take mostly the leafy ends of the hay. The rest gets scattered around as they paw the segment apart.
As soon as the few axis in those pastures find it though, it's pretty much all gone.

Rifles are similar to boats and young women...there's no end to how much money you can pour into them without making them any more useful.
