I think I’ve mentioned this before, but I didn’t need suggestions then. It was cute the first time I saw a deer bumping a hanging bird feeder and licking up the seeds. Not so cute now that they are cleaning the feeders out. Filled the feeders yesterday and they were empty this morning. Had a doe on her back legs getting high enough that she could get her tongue on the top of a flat feeder. She was licking up the seeds and chowing down.

With coons and squirrels eating the seed, I have the Tikka solution. For the deer, I have no solution yet.

Suggestions?

Hang bird feeders from small cable higher up and out of reach of the deer?


High fence, low fence, no fence, it really doesn't matter as long as you're hunting!

I have 4 buck that I feed(corn & peanuts) in a feed trough I built and they still clean out the bird seed every night.
I only put out enough for the birds every evening. I also dont feed the deer until the squirrels go to bed or they will clean out the peanuts.

I made a bird feeder out of 4 inch PVC and hung it from a tree that there was no way coons could get to. WRONG!


Without a sense of urgency, nothing ever happens.
