Been doing it for 4-5 years now with great success. Do it only in the afternoon about 2pm. Thinking about starting a run about an hour before I walk out to the stand in the morning. Should I have started earlier during the year? Even in e.texas, the deer are waiting to come out after I spread. Feeder goes off at 7am, get to stand at 6 spread at 5. Sound good?

I spread corn every morning and afternoon before my hunt (hour before). The deer like you said will get use to this and will be there waiting.

if you want them to stay a little longer, try 1 or 2 liter bottles, deer will roll them around to get the corn

Can you explain what you mean by road feeding? I'm game for just about anything to up my odds, just never heard of this term.

Instead of or in addition to your normal feeder, you attach a road feeder to your vehicle and scatter corn in different locations as you drive around the pasture. It works and it's also good to get the deer to be less spooky about vehicles.

Spreading corn in a sendero. The road referred to is not a public road.

Anybody have one of the road feeders from Buccees? I believe it's in All-Seasons for less than $100. I'm thinking about picking one up this weekend.

I could be completely wrong, but all of the All-Seasons road feeders I've seen were north of $200.

I've got right at $140 in my Foreverlast from Academy and couldn't be happier with it. $99 for the feeder and $39 for the receiver mount kit. The remote wire is long enough to hook the feeder into the back receiver on a 4 door, long bed pickup, and have the remote in the drivers seat.

All Seasons and Texas Hunter Products both make good road feeders. My cousin is actually the warehouse manager at Texas Hunter. I had a foreverlast, it was a nice little feeder but glad I used it on a 4 wheeler as getting in and out of vehicle to open it sucked the few times I did have to do it.

We got the one from Bucees last year. For the money it is okay, remote is long enough to reach inside veh or utv. However, if you do not close the damper/spill it will allow to much corn to flow down on to the spinner while your driving/bouncing and then when you hit the remote on to throw and it will not throw and is the PIA (with hand/stick etc) to clear out enough corn to allow spin to operate. Thus, recommend each time you reach a place you want to start feeding, get out open slide, feed, get out close slide and drive on to next area.
