Who uses one and could answer a few questions? I'm considering starting protein again. In the past, I lost so much to coons that I'm considering a timed feeder.

I use the Krivoman feeders with hammer timers. Have had them 5 years & they work great. I have them open at 6 AM & close at 6 pm. My protein loss to coons disappeared.

That's what I was hoping to hear. I was considering All Seasons, I believe it operates differently. I've just started looking into these. Thanks.

You will still have a coon problem just not to the same degree. Lamco, Ranch King, Outback, and All Seasons all make them. All do the same but look a bit different with prices to match.

With the All Seasons, looks it could be set to dispense once, at say 0630, 12 lbs and you'd be good for about 6 weeks. I am leaning in this direction.

A buddy of mine uses the all season & has been happy with them.

I’ve got 2 Lamco’s, been flawless for the 1.5 years I’ve used them. In fact, just picked up 3 Lamco stand & fill 600 lb corn feeders to replace 3 turds I bought a while back. Design and functionality can’t be beat.

Only thing to remember is the footprint is absolutely huge….way bigger than I imagined. No big deal until it’s time to trailer them.

The folks at Lamco are great to deal with too.

We are running three of the Ranch King Mighty Buck 1K protein feeders. Been solid and reliable.
