I went to check my property this past weekend and had 1500lbs of protein eaten in less than 45 days.

I'm guessing it ran out out around the 30 day mark but not sure.

I normally would be ok with this but my dam trail camera was not working at the time so I didn't even get to enjoy seeing what I was feeding.

I can relate to that also. Since 8-3 I have fed 2350 lbs out of 3 feeders. Not very much rain now since early July, 100 deg temps, zero mast crop and not much green the deer are hitting feeder hard now. Fawns are also jumping into pens and eating protein. In Oct a fawn will eat the same amount of feed an adult doe will eat per day. Bucks will pound the feed in Sept-Oct to get ready for the rut. But I do have TC pics grin

Went four weeks between feedings and only went through about 700 pounds. No fawns jumping into pens yet. In hindsight, I wish I would have made them a little bigger (10 panels instead of 8). Does and young bucks seem reluctant to jump in and I rarely have more than three in my pens at one time.
