I made a couple out of 4" PVC.

4" 5' tall install a Y at the bottom cap the bottom and leave the Y open for them to feed.

Cap the bottom so the grain stays in and place a removal cap on the top to protect from weather.

I set one out in the spring and got 1227 picture of racoons.

Drill a couple small holes in the bottom cap so moisture has a way to escape.

retired, i noticed you are from Indiana Co. too. where at? im down near Saltsburg. i get deer in the field and the yard most every night. they are always looking for a handout. ive been feeding them corn during the winter by throwing it on the ground but i would like to have some kind of feeder. just might make one of those feeders with the pipe.

I'am near Blairsville,If you make one of the tube feeders,make sure you fit a cap on the y fitting in the store so you get the right size or you may need to add a 4 inch piece of pipe to the bottom to get the cap to work,also some small drain holes in the bottom cap.

4 inch by 5ft high pvc pipe typically holds about 25-30 lbs of shelled corn... i have 2 feeders on 100 acres of land and a 50lb bag of corn cost me $7.25. its not too bad. my deer have it gone in 3 days... along with the coons and turkeys!!! Sit back and enjoy!!!
