You do know that there is a binding agent in pellets? When they get rained on and wet, that will look like a bowl full of oatmeal.
I like it though...even if you built it first but don't know how your are going to attach it to the feeder yet.... scratch

rofl


Its complicated...I am thinking of cutting off that elbow and pipe and putting a piece of Rebar in concrete under the feeder and having it suspended from the ground eeks333


See that 90 degree elbow...thinking about cutting it off there and leaving a straight pipe and it falls down into the tray...
Man I have the creative juices flowing roflmao

With it being so small and very deep I would not mount it under that pipe if you cut the 90 off. I would be more worried about velvet antler damage from bucks to trying to eat out of it. If you are going to cut the 90 off then I would scrap this "trough" and just put a piece of plywood or flat plate table under the feeder for deer to eat the feed off of.

Oh now you did it. He is rethinking this epic build it first without designing it first "trough". Those creative juices just soured. grin

I'm glad you're too stingy to by a Lamco, thus keeping us entertained. I can't wait to get a picture of a corn vulture roosting in your new build. Of course you may get the last laugh when you sell the blueprints to your buddies at WGI! grin
