For all the hunters that feed cottonseed, what type of fencing do you use for the cottonseed? I will be heading out to the lease in Ozona in a few weeks and have about 600lbs of cottonseed that I want to put out. It will be in a feed pen that I currently have up for my corn feeder due to the rancher having cows on the ranch. If anyone can provide pics of their cottonseed feeders and what type of fencing you use that would be great. Thanks a lot...

Thanks a lot for reply tlk. Good looking bucks and nice setup. Is that the V-Mesh wire for the fencing?

Went out to the lease this weekend and got my feeders topped off and also setup a cottonseed feeder. Over night I had about 55pics. Deer were already starting to hit it. Also most of the bucks I saw still had their head gear. Should start dropping any day now.

We used the V-Mesh fencing. The picture below is not my pic, but gives you a view of the fencing used.

That is the same setup I use minus the plastic top.

Where did you find cottonseed and about how much did it cost?
