I really want to build a stand and fill feeder my only concern is missing a shot with a deer behind the feeder.

I haven't, but the prominent feeding position is usually right under the spinner and bucks will almost always take that spot. Thats on tripod feeders, all I have used.

If I had one it would not be a problem since I put extra corn out from a road feeder or throw extra out from a bucket. That puts deer where I want them.

No. But my stand and fills have 12 volt motors that really throw the corn out and spread it good so I have plenty of shot opportunities that aren't right next to the feeder.

You could always shoot the deer BEFORE he gets to the feeder.......

No issues here either. Most of feed is broadcast well beyond the feeder, but inside the fence. Bigger issue is not hitting the cattle panel fencing. Trying to sneak a bullet half inch hi or low of the cross wire has cause me a deflection or two!

Ditto, I don't shoot em around the feeder

Never hit thr feeder while hunting deer. Did put a hole through one of feeder legs while shooting a coon.

I've shot very few bucks standing directly under a feeder. and truthfully not that many does even. we hand throw corn when we sit...so there is a broader area there for the deer to feed. the majority of things that I've shot directly under a feeder have been hogs and raccoons.

like anything...just be patient on your shot. wait for them to move.
