How many seconds for your feeders in the off season? How many times a day?

Whatever they will eat up per feeding. How green or dry it is dictates the number.

It would be nice to be able to be on top of things as much as STx but for most of us we set it after season and we are gone for a month or two or three. In that case we set a 55 gallon feeder to run out in two to three months. Theoretically every feeder can throw different amounts per a length of time so hard to say how many seconds. A lot of feeders would be 2 to 3 seconds but I look at it at about 2#s per throw and throw twice a day.

Eliminator spinner plate does not throw as much as the non spring loaded spinners, Non spring loaded 4 seconds now twice each day. The eliminator is going 8 seconds twice a day. Hope to keep some turkey in the area.

Once a day in the evening for 4 seconds just to get some hogs out in the open where I can kill them easily.

About 5 seconds morning and evening. I’ll turn it down when they stop eating the corn in spring.

4 seconds in morning and 2 seconds in the evening. I think more of my corn goes to deer instead of raccoons this way.

Depends on the size of the feeder. the 55 gallon drum feeder is set at 3 and 3. The 600 lb feeders are set to 8 and 8. I don't want the feed to staying long enough for weevils to start turning it into dust.


Sometimes it's hard being me! But somebody has to do it.

Anywhere from 3-8 seconds. Seconds is a poor correlation of how much your feeding though. Our feeder that feeds 3 seconds feed about the same amount as the one for 8 seconds.
