Looking for options on pipe feeders. If you have a main spin feeder are pipe feeders worth the effort when they may only be a few hundred yards from the main feeder. I know a lot of people make there own and some you can buy. Any options on which style works the best? I'm hunting the woods were you don't see deer coming for a long ways away , so maybe Its best to have as many feeding areas as you can get. Any options?

I've built quite a few from both PVC and wire. I sometimes use them along with spin feeders. If you use a pipe one, be sure and put a lid on it.

You tend to feed a lot of coons with pipe feeders.

will deer come to pipe feeders or just go and hit the spin feeder? Any benefit to have one when you have a spin feeder running?

IMHO, the more feeders you have out, of any kind, tends to dilute the deer sightings. If you are hunting a spin feeder you want them to come to it. If you put out several pipe feeders, because they are basically a free choice feeder, the will eat at those until they are full and move on and may not come to your spin feeder.
