I just recently bought 31 acres west of ranger. I happened to get a elevated blind , pond , feeder with a pen and a few feed plots with lots of trees/shrubbery everywhere.
Since I have only owned it for 2 weeks I have only been able to replace the tripod feeder that was poorly working with a new HB hunting products Feeder with a larger capacity.
I have a lot of mowing/shredding ahead of me however since I just replaced and added the new feeder I figured I would give the pen/feeding area a little attention first.
This is my first pen set up as on leases I have hunted on in the past they didn't need them. My new property has tons of feral hogs so this pen is a must.
I can't tell you if this pen is to small or if it needs some work done to it and made larger.
In a few days of filling the feeder after the purchase of the property I have only seen 1 doe and a dam Racoon.
It's been months since the old feeder had anything in it however with the feeder close to the pond I'm guessing that is how she found it.
Could you all give me some pointers if there is anything you see I need to do with this pen set up or area around it to get it moving in the right direction? Feel free to be up front and honest. I know it probably needs some work so any info is greatly appreciated.
Looking forward to getting to know each of you and sharing stories/info
