If I’m hunting 80 acres with 3 time feeders. Do y’all set the times all the same or space them out so deer make their rounds ?

Unless the deer are starving and waiting for the feeder to go off and gobble everything down, they will just make the rounds anyway, within your property and between your property and your neighbor's.

This sounds like a word problem from 8th grade math.

This place is heavily wooded and there will be 3 stands in place. 1 5x6 box stand for when it’s raining or someone wants to go with me. Then 2 ladder stands that I can hunt depending on wind direction.

I hunt 75 acres in Rocksprings and have three feeders. I set them for the same time. I can’t see my other stands and don’t see the same deer. I have big hill on my property that keeps the deer separated. Not saying they never make it to the tiger feeders but when I hunting I don’t see them making the rounds to all the feeders.

I have 6 feeders on 133 acres. Been doing it for 20 years and gives us some options. Of course, keeping them running, changing batteries, buying corn...……..
