That are somewhat Coon proof. Looking for a couple of 1000#ers.

Anyone having a coon problem at their All Seasons protein feeders? Says on their website that they are rain and varmint proof.

We’ve got 2 of the All Seasons, they do stay dry for the most part (a little gummy at the bottom lip after a good blow).
Pics show coons cleaning up the dropped stuff but not climbing on them like the old barrels with drop tubes.

All I see on their website is spinning corn feeders. I'm asking about free choice protein feeders that are coon proof.

contact Tim at the link above and he should be able to help you. They show a picture of a timed ~700# protein feeder on their Facebook page ...

That timed one will definitely not be Coon proof. Thanks anyway, looks like if I have a problem it'll be an All Seasons I guess.

just curious, how would you coon proof a protein feeder ... out of my own ignorance, never dealt with protein ... most seem to have a spout around chin high for a deer.

I've wondered the same thing and I have a protein feeder!

I asked the question on their Facebook page about making a coon proof protein feeder ... their response

GreenGo Feeders I can add a plate over the spout so they can't sit on them

GreenGo FB page on protein feeders

also shows a partial picture of one of their gravity feeder protein feeders.

The more Coon proof ones are feeders that the coon can't sit on the spout. The All Seasons have an angled spout and this is probably the direction I'll go. Was just wondering if anyone had any experience with another brand that worked well.

Any body had problems with boss buck feeders and coons/squirrels chewing spouts?

Texas Hunter Products has their 1200 lb. on sale for 999.00

A lot of feeder for the money. I like the design. None will be coon proof, but chain some dukes traps around the feeder frame at the bottom and you can get rid of the coon problem quickly since you live there. up
