Any ideas or successful attempts to keep coons from a tripod protein feeder? I've seen everything from loose PVC around the legs to spikes around the tube mouth. Any of these or other ideas work?

As long as they are not jumping from a nearby tree but vasoline or grease on the legs. Vasoline is cleaner.

Go buy some carpet tack strips and mount them on the legs.

I use 4" PVC around the legs on my protein and regular feeders. Have not had an issue since. The carpet strips just give them a foot hold.

PVC pipe is working for me. Make it thick enough that they can't get their mitts around it.

Carpet strips don't work, I tried making my own shark teeth, there was blood all over them and still coons hanging from them

Are you talking about access to the spinning plate or access to the corn on the ground?

My feeder has a cage protecting the spinning plate. On ground, you need to get rid of them. Or they will call in more and more friends.

I think he is talking about a protein feeder with spouts ...

Sorry. I did not ready carefully.

I don't even know what a protein feeder with spouts is.

Duke Dog Proof coon traps will solve the problem, anything else is a bandaid temporary fix for the problem.

Worked like a champ for me and cost about $3. They never played trapeze artist again.

That's pretty wicked looking Charlie. They'd have to be some hungry fellers to hang from that.
