I think it would do well out there, we're in the junction area and they can't get enough once they figure it out. Not sure if it was the axis or white tails but they ate a whole bail of alfalfa out of our converted feeder in two days flat just last week. We just cut out the bottoms of some old feeders and attached four L shaped braces that connect in the middle about 10-12" down. Drive up toss it in and go. We only use the Chaffhaye when actually hunting because they eat it overnight.
If some animals are good at hunting and others are suitable for hunting, then the Gods must clearly smile on hunting.
