After a two seasons on my place I have come to the conclusion my deer really like what I feed them, but when it gets wet I canít get to my feeders. Thatís a problem. I am thinking I need to buy a couple lamco timered feeders for protein and keep it open from January through sept, then start timing it so it is open only during the day from sept to Jan.
I have a timed Lamco Protein Trough feeder. Couple comments...
- You MUST buy the rain shut off attachment, otherwise you end up with a deer repellent when you have a nasty blob of wet feed in the troughs.
- If you have an active coon population, the troughs will fatten 'em up if you don't thin the herd.
- With the above, I am a believer in it being much more economical on feed as my lease mates go through alot more protein than I do as none of mine ends up on the ground.
I like the unit, I wish Lamco would have made the troughs with a mesh bottom for water/moisture dissipation. I'm at least drilling some small holes in mine to do the same.
Has anyone used the All Seasons electric timed protein feeder? You can go up to 2000 lbs
Love my 600lb stand and fill!
I strongly considered this one, but if you've ever watched video of a deer trying to eat out of one, it's a pretty odd angle, I believe it's too low to the ground.
