Thanks for the feedback... I sure don't want a feeder that may not work most of the time. With my lease being 4.5hrs away in Ozona, I need to get a feeder that is pretty reliable. Currently I am using the Moultrie Pro-Magnum 6volt and it has worked without issue going on for 2 yrs. I wanted to upgrade to 12volt feeder. Have not had any real issues with coons, so I don't really need the drop down. I will be looking into the Texas Hunter or All Seasons..
