Alamo Wildlife feeder. Set it and forget it. Coon cages suck!

Tack strips are cruel and don't work. PVC pipes have to be installed when the feeder is empty so you can slip them over the legs. Centrifugal spinners work but only on 12V controllers that deliver enough current to pull them down and will fail OPEN if not maintained.
Greasing the pole is a joke. It will eventually melt off in the Texas sun and those "umbrella cones"? Good luck with those. Best solution with 100% guaranteed results are Coon-A-Hoops. Here's a link to eBay:

Coons are akin to yotes, Kill all you want, but it does lil' good. Take some out and that there territory then becomes rich in coon nutrition from under-utilization and new coons move in or the remaining, existing coons increase their birth rates. Whatever you do, never, ever attempt to poison coons at your feeder set up. Never, ever.

If a varmint cage does not encapsulate all wires, you had better figure out something or they will use it like a trapeze. The PVC might be a good solution. The best solution which completely erases coon carnage is the feeders previously written about, Two of my four pens have the Lamco feeders. Klappenbach, next pasture over, has two of his three pens set up similar. Both of us wish they had come out a long time ago.

They are hard to defeat.

My DIY feeders have nothing exposed for them to mess with. They crawl all over but nothing has been damaged.

Followed that link and checked that out.
Seems like a simple and at the same time elegant solution to the problem and it's something you can afford.
