I was thinking of putting out a Redneck t-post feeder this weekend on a travel pinch point. My question is how high should I go up with it to encourage the deer to feed from it and discourage the hogs. I would like it to be unpenned, free choice unlike my other penned spincasters. Thanks.

If deer can reach it, a hog can obliterate it.
