Deer Feeders

Anyone here have a deer feeder at camp and regularly maintain it. Just curious as to what you see, and whether it enhances the camp experience?

Re: Deer Feeders

Have had a feeder at camp for many years. It holds 1200 pounds of shelled corn. We get a lot of enjoyment from it and a lot of trail cam pics.

Re: Deer Feeders

I get a lot of enjoyment from going for a walk and seeing wildlife in its natural habitat.
The only feeder I have are the habitat improvement projects and the long term benefit they provide.
One of my neighbors spreads corn every day. Sometimes it looks like a barnyard. They've been doing it for many years so I'm sure they enjoy it.

I miss my hunting partner

Re: Deer Feeders

Members at my camp have a large covered wire cage that holds cob corn, cost a grand a year to keep in over the winter and provides lots of pleasure watching , deer, bear and turkeys using it. It is last filled when they close camp to provide winter feed.

Re: Deer Feeders

Any feeders that are in a reasonable price range that are heavier gravity feeders?..Something that I can pick up somewhere not trying to pay shipping charges for a heavy item. I've had hanging electronic feeders and other similar style feeders. The bears have destroyed them all. Any help would be appreciated thank you

Re: Deer Feeders

I have seen DIY feeders. Google it and I'm sure you can find something you like and is in your budget.

Re: Deer Feeders

A section of black PVC, a "Y" two caps, glue, a saw and a drill is all you need. Oh and the feed...

Re: Deer Feeders

I have gravity type feeders that I made. Made a big one for camp (holds 1200 shelled corn) and a small one for home (holds 350 pounds of shelled corn). I just looked at a old bird feeder we had and made the deer feeder only a lot bigger.
