Yes but protein on the ground swells fast. It sucks in moisture quickly.

It can also swell in the feed come on top of the spinner plate also

Free choice feeder, yes. Spin type like a corn feeder, I wouldn't recommend. BoBo is right, protein feed on the ground is not a good idea.

What you can use and works pretty well is the roasted soybeans mixed with corn. I’ve run almost 2k lbs of it within the last year thru my corn feeders. Deer are happy, Turkey like it more than I’d prefer and it’s about $2-3 a 50lb bag more than corn at Shoppin Baskit in Ballinger or Coleman.

I used a mix of corn and protein pellets in my spin feeder for years at my place by Luckenbach. Behrends Feed. (They're in Harper too.)

Assuming you mean a timed broadcast feeder. The short answer is yes you can. If you are doing it with the intent that you are going to see the preferred results of supplemental protein feeding, I'd spend my money elsewhere. Free choice feeders for protein would be the preferred method if you are seeking to achieve some level of improvement to overall deer health, increased body weight, improved antler development, increased fawn survival, etc
