a few years back there was a 18 wheeler on the side of the road selling Alfalfa, so WTHeck, I bought a few bails. I put one out close to a spin feeder at three different locations at my leases in Central Texas (Burnet, Lampasas & Llano counties).
The one in Burnet county looked almost exactly the same 2-3 months later untouched, I rolled it over to find it was now a full size habitat fire ant mound. I burst the bail open and it turned back into dirt over the next several months without anything (except fire ants) going to it. The one in Lampasas county went untouched from Oct. thru mid January before the hogs rolled it around enough to bust it open and it turned into compost. The one in Llano the cows got to it and it was gone within a few days.
My BIL hunts in the panhandle around Clarendon and has pretty good success with putting up a feed pen with a bail of Alfalfa that seems to draw in the mule deer but not so much with the WT.
