I'm needing to replace my protein feeder tubes. Every time it rains it will mold and clog. Mine is made out of 4" pic pipe. We have some on other protein feeders that were from academy and they clog too. I think they don't sell that one anymore.

Anyone recommend any?

Here are some I'm looking at getting. I'd like your input on each.

From Academy the new version of the ones we have:
http://www.academy.com/webapp/wcs/stores...avity+Feed+Tube

Boss Buck 3 way head
https://bossbuck.com/product/3-way-protein-gravity-head97.html

Spin tech feeder tube
Gravity Flow Telescoping Protein Tube https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00JMOLYNM/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awd_2YSGwbE01C291

Or any other that won't clog.

Chain link fence gate post cut to length and build a head. Plastic builds the moisture and thus causes mold and clogs.

Thanks but this time I'm looking for an already built one.

Anyone else?

Protein feed wicks in the moisture, so no matter what you use you will have issues until the deer start to hit the feed daily. Find you a dealer close buy for these.

Ranch is right, unless the deer are consuming regularly all protein will wick and starting binding in the tube...

I know. I figure someone should figure it out and fix it. I've been reading around today and it seems the Boss Bucks one does not clog. Anyone say otherwise?

I have the 4 tube Boss Buck,and it will clog up like any other when the deer aren't coming to it everyday. I just cleaned it out 30 minutes ago when I got to the lease.
