Will they come when the feeder goes off?
Maybe, maybe not if you have already put hunting pressure on them.

A feeder will bring them in.
A pig pipe, barrel or ball will keep them there for hours and hours.

Sounds like pretty good ideas. I've got a bunch of 30 gallon plastic barrels. I might rig up a chain and t-post setup they can push around like a big pig pipe and give it a try.

Put this out on Saturday with a camera. We'll see, they've been emptying a pipe in 4 days or less here.

I put a full sack of corn and had some leftover protein (10-15 lbs) I put in also. I get just over 1/3 of a sack in my pipes. Seems heavy, but we'll see I guess. I put (3) just under .5" holes in it.
