Guy's - posted this on other forum but wanted to put it here also. Been a reader on these boards for years but never signed up or posted. Brand new so bear with me please.
I have a product idea I've been playing with for a feeder accessory. I have two manufactured prototype units and need some unbiased testing & feedback. Looking for two serious hunters willing to test (can keep the unit when done) and willing to share pic's and input both good & bad.
Here is the setup you must have:
Must use a 55 gal barrel feeder.
Must have Std two leg square/rectangle spreader/control box.
A coon problem with your feeder.
Perhaps you have a varmint cage that either doesn't deter them or knocks down corn and doesn't spread it very far.
This unit is varmint/coon proof, mounts easily in the field, and throws feed farther than normal. The benefit of the broadcast distance is that it reduces competition for feed right under the feeder, spreads animals apart from each other, and animals have to hunt & pick around for the feed which keeps them on site longer as the feed is not consumed as quickly. Nice benefit for deer and hog hunting.
I have a pen around my feeders & with increased distance it throws a little feed past the pen to keep hogs interested, but leaves majority of feed in the pen for deer. Nice set up if you like to hunt both pigs & deer but don't want pigs cleaning up your corn.
Wish I could accommodate everyone that is interested but only have the two units to share at this time. If interested please email me and give me an overview of your situation and include pic's of your coon problem and set up if you can. Thanks in advance for helping me out.
