I can't seem to figure out why I don't have any deer showing up... [Linked Image]

If that feeder is 12V, you"re probably tossing some corn outside of the pen, maybe even with a strong 6V feeder. Either way, may need to increase the pen size.

Can't tell from the pic, but you may need to cut down on the height of some of the panels if they're all standard height, but you definitely need to increase the size.

The hogs can do it, they will reduce deer activity. Could probably make the pen a little bigger to keep more corn in and less hogs interested, would also make the deer feel more comfortable in there.

Not sure of the size of that clearing from the TC pic, but we have seen in several areas that our deer don't like feeding at feeders with tight cover all around, and if they do come to it, its only a deer or two. We have had better luck by clearing more area out around the feeders, I think it makes them feel more comfortable to have a bigger clear area to prevent something from sneaking right up on them.

Looks like you need to turn the feeder pen into a great big hog trap.....

Just to say it... the reason you don't have deer ,is not because you have hogs. Single feeder and no pen? Maybe...


Pen size, no Protein, panel height, time of year, etc. etc. etc.

Do you have pics of deer there, just not now?

I would increase the pen size to at least 10 panels. Part of the problem is staring right at you. Very green for this time of year.

Before you increase the size of the pen, put a one way gate on the side of the pen, and make a lot of your problem go away.

Does he put up a "Deer Only" sign on the gate? I don't understand your recommendation?

He is saying turn the feeder pen into a hog trap and get rid of the hogs before making the pen bigger. He would catch a bunch of them with that style of trap.
