Sorry I meant straw, but here its all the same, straw is called wheat hay and it is fed to cows and horses the same as you would Timothy and alfalfa and the deer eat every bit of it in the snow.

There should be how to make a dirthole sticky on the top, Instead there's a how to make a hay set sticky, which is what most new people see. Lots of hay set posts lately

Haha you didn't really use true hay in a hay set did you lol Anywhere there are any herbivores near by would eat it in hours especially in the snow. You use straw in hay sets guess they should really be called straw sets. I have never seen deer eat straw before but maybe mule deer do. I have had straw bells next to my kennels and deer walk by them daily and never had one eat it even in the dead of winter. They sure do a number on my gardens and my feeders tho.

It was straw, they feed the straw to the cows out here, the Mule deer eat everything and anything.

I use plenty of dirtholes. You can see them if you bring a shovel and help me dig down through the snow to find them...
