Did you adjust your feeder clock for the time change?

If so what are your new AM/PM throw times?

I didn't change my feeder clock and my throw times are 7:30am and 5pm.

I'm sure I'm not the only one that had this recent discussion.

In the morning I have mine go off at sunrise, then an hour later. Again an hour or so before sunset.

I'm curious, I wasn't able to change my feeders. Will there be any effect or will they still go off at the correct time?

645 & 845 in the mornings & 500 in the evenings. I have two throws in the mornings because sometimes I go hunt after I take my daughter to school and if the deer have cleaned up the first throw of corn I want some more there for them if they come by for a late snack...

the clocks don't know anything about daylight savings etc...so I don't think they will throw at the wrong time...lol...

The sunrise/sunset is different everyday. So what I set this week is going to be different next week but will still use 20 minutes before sunrise as my time I want the feeder to feed. I used to use a timer that adjusted the sunrise/sunset daily on its own. All I did was preset the minutes before sunrise or sunset or after. Those minutues never changed. The timer was a geo timer manufactured in Austin Texas.

Ok thanks. I may end up adjusting mine a bit, but for now she'll do.

Last couple years we have been starting the season out at 6;45 in the morning and mid to late season bumping it to 7:00 as it gets light later.

Pretty much always set the afternoon feeding for 4:30. We also throw an old paint can of feed by hand in a few areas every hunt.

My sunrise tomorrow is 6:48 and sunset is 5:41. My feeders go off in the morning at 6:20 and 5:30 in the evening(set a week ago yesterday). So in the next few days I will adjust them 5-7 minutes more or less. Deer move very early in the morning or late here in the afternoons unless the temps are really cold. On other places they move differently that I have hunted.
