Re: Feeders at Camp
Had one at camp a few years back till the state told me to remove it. I now just put out some scratch feed or a little shelled corn in late winter or summer. Nice to watch the wildlife come in to feed, especially when you think there's none around.
What your going to find is the deer will use it until a bear shows up, which I'm sure you will agree, isn't all that bad. The problem is he won't want to leave until there's nothing left to eat, and the deer won't return until he does.
One thing you might want to keep in mind, especially during the summer. Corn bring mice, mice bring snakes, so watch out for rattlers at that time of year.
The way that you wander is the way that you choose,
The day that you tarry is the day that you lose.
Sunshine or thunder, a man will always wonder.
Where the fair wind blows.
