I'm sure this has been discussed, but I've gone back through a lot of posts and haven't seen it. What is the best feeder hunters would recommend for around $500? I would be willing to pay more if warranted. It is going on a high fenced ranch with whitetail, blackbuck, fallow, axis, aoudad and red deer. I've heard someone recommend Platinum Feeders, but wanted to see other recommendations.

With auodad and red deer you will need a stout feeder. Outback would be my starting place to look for a well built feeder.

Texas Wildlife Systems "Old Timer" is pretty slick and pretty heavy duty. I'd give it a strong look.

I can usually build my feeders with a Spincast brand feeder for around $250. I use heavy pipe legs. Cows or hogs are never a problem. Only holds 300 pounds but I could get you 2 feeders for the price of one all seasons feeder.

Obviously this one is well liked. Any concerns about the aoudad or red deer beating it up? I've never used a stand and fill feeder before - is the spray pattern equivalent to raised feeders? Meaning, is the area that the corn is spread large enough that smaller animals can come in to eat while larger animals are eating?

The best feeder that we have used are the same as the hang em high feeders (and they may actually be them).

Their website is: http://www.hangemhighfeeders.com/

I saw them at Mumme's feed store in San Antonio for I believe it was $479.

I would like to try an All Season's feeder sometime, but these are very stout feeders, and you can't beat a crank up feeder. I am not a big fan of going up and down ladders, especially with a 50 pound sack of feed on my shoulder!!!

Oh, $479 was just for the feeder, no timer included.

We have several hangem hi's. They are good feeders. I put texas hunter timer kits in them and they have been good.

I will always have crank up feeders. If you have/have had one you know why.

Several people make crank up feeders for less than hangem hi's and you can easily make your own for even less. A well built feeder is a lifetime investment. Skimping out a hundred or two dollars gets you a couple year feeder.
