Do whitetail like alfalfa hay?
If they fly stack 'em high

I've seen them eat it but it might take a while for them to try it since it's not a natural good source to most of them in Texas.

I've been told they love alfalfa but when its balled they will pick through the bale and only eat the leaf thus leaving you a pile of stems. I think those that feed alfalfa use hay racks to feed with to try and eliminate this from happening.

Good luck.

Everything up here eats alfalfa; whitetails, mule deer , antelope and elk. They do the same , eat the leaves and leave the stems.
They hit the horse hay as soon as we put it out, doesn't take long at all for them to find it.

They'll eat it like crazy but it's too expensive IMO.

I've never had much luck with it but only tried it a couple of times.

I have tried it but couldn't get the deer in east Texas to eat it. I have fed it to mule deer in west Texas.
