I want to see what y'alls setups look like this year. This here is a setup for a client of mine and I thought this would be a fun show and tell.

I use a double feeder set up. One throws in the morning, one in the evening. That way if one clogs up, etc, I'm
still throwing once a day.

My favorite spot on my place sets on top of a big hill over looking a gas line. Really the only place around that you can see very far.

That's a pretty good idea.

Thanks, and they last twice as long between having to fill them up.

"What's the capacity on that bad boy?" It's a combo corn and protein feeder. We love them though they are a pain to fill in the heat. All Seasons no longer makes them and for the life of me, I don't have that figured out. You can put this one device in a pen and be done with it. At the start of season, we take our cottonseed cages out of the pen. Klappenbach and myself have 7 feed pens between the two of us with one of these seeing the most numbers of deer and the other one in 3rd. Our lease ramrod always says country deer don't like to go the city and we believe having only one device in the 46 foot square pens may be part of the reason for the larger deer numbers.

Listed as a 2,000 pound capacity, it can accommodate 24 bags of protein if you stuff it in and 700 pounds of corn. These feeders give us little in the way of issues and the round feeder ports seem to keep the protein from caking up as much as the troughs when the random rains do hit.

350lbs per drum. It's close to home so it's not to hard to keep up with. It's 10 years old and I had to change one lid. The spinner is an old moultree that I had to add a timer to. The combo is still going strong and change the battery twice in that time.

Sounds like a pretty good quality set up there. Is that a solar panel on the back leg?

Don't have a picture of mine, but i got 15ft pipe, and welded a piece of angle iron about 3 feet length on the end of it, and then bent it over at a 90 degree angle, and thats what i hang the feeder on, and i got a rope and 2 pulleys to aid in lowering and lifting it.
the pipe is placed over a T-post, and about 8 inches in the ground,, and i drove two T-posts in the ground butted up against the pipe and wired them together, suprisingly sturdy.

This was one of our first ones on our place. The base was an old elevated hunting stand that someone left on the place I cut and reconfigured to hold a drum. Everything but the timer was scavenged off stuff we found on the place previous owner/lease hunters left behind. Ill have to look if i have any of our current setup.

Five years ago - I slapped together this little 'mini' feeder for my 'backyard lease' which has worked out perfect for my needs - easy peasy 1-man no tools refill!:
a 6-gal galvanized garbage can (holds 1 bag perfect, which I can easily carry on my shoulder for the 2-min walk from my back door wink ),
and some EMT tubing, a few bolts, baling wire, and pvc caps & pvc pipe for squirrel/coon proof, and a timer:
[Linked Image]

Easily 'folds down' to refill by untying one leg (all 3 held by re-bar stakes and wire) and moving 3rd leg to a small hole dug 10ft away;
[Linked Image]


The turkey seem to like it;
[Linked Image]


and the hogs seem to like it (free fresh pork - yum);
[Linked Image]





and of course 'the boys' like it fine too: (date-year is off on camera, this was 2018) grin

Great looking birds! Are they hunted on your 'backyard lease'?
