I getting a 600 lb feeder in a couple of weeks to replace a 300 lb feeder that's currently there. Rather than selling the 300lb feeder etc I've decided to see about using it with something that quite frankly might give me an edge. I've thought about protein but I'm not sure if it's the best or if there's something else I can use that will draw deer in. And guys I'm already using Indian corn.

Deer attractant is designed to attract hunters/buyers more than deer. Maybe just use some deer ration corn soy bean mix if you just want a stronger aroma
If you have IG or FB go give me a follow at TexasKillingFields

Agree with sapper, too many attractants will gum up a feeder too.

I have used roasted corn and soy and the deer love it. It may draw them in but what I would do is pour a bag on the ground to get them interested. once they know it is there they will love you for it.

Another pour on the ground type of attractant that may help is rice bran. Smells just like most other attractants with a sweet smell but it is bulk and you get a discount for the bulk size. Wasn't a huge believer in it, despite numerous reports of it working, so thought I would try and sure enough deer like it just fine. Many of my cell cam pics have shown them in it, preferring it slightly over BB&J attractant.
