I have three big protein feeders on the ranch, but I'm looking for a smaller one for my house deer. Somewhere around 3-400#. I like the large tube type and not the plate. Can anyone recommend a small free choice protein feeder that doesn't clog, or waste feed? Thanks

Option 1
300# Boss Buck protein feeder (you can easily move around on your own) if needed

Option 2
500# All Season Protein Feeder

I looked at the Boss Buck. Not great reviews, but it is cheap.

I use the 300# all seasons

Work just fine.

For a little more the 500# stand and fill is the ticket


For it is not the quarry that we truly seek, but the adventure.

Yea, I had a 1000# all seasons before, it worked out fine. I sold it because I got a monster sweetheart deal on a 2000# Outback protein feeder. Neighbor was selling his ranch and sold it to me for $300.

I'm considering the 500# All Seasons.

Used these for quite some time. If you find out it is not enough capacity, just add anothe one.

Why would you not consider a timed protein feeder for your house deer? If you want to watch deer and not coons that's what I would use. Mine goes off a little after sun up.


An unethical shot is one you take, that you know you shouldn't.

That's what I use at my local bow lease that's close to home. They are surprisingly clog resistant.

No Coons, got cameras on 4 protein stations and 1 corn feeder, not a single Coon has been coming to them. I got rid of them...for now. Plus I like to see them come and go all day. Haven't seen a Coon in over 4 months, even then it was just two.
