    I have a friend who is interested in making a couple feeders out of PVC. Not exactly sure on how to make one and what size PVC tube to build it out of. Also, how do you keep it standing upright against a tree?

    6" PVC works great. One 10' piece of pipe can make 2 feeders. I put 2 elongated hole in the back of the pipe and hang it to the tree with 2 lag bolts. Or you can just strap/tie it to the tree.

    Have fun with the raccoons, i'm still trying to figure out how to keep them out of the corn. They eat more then the deer.

    Where are you located? I have a couple I made a few years ago that I dont use anymore, free if you want them

    Take a peice of 8-10" peice of pvc about 5ft long, buy a cap for one end as your lid. On the bottom, cut a half circle about 1.5-2" wide for the corn to flow out. Next screw a peice of plywood onto the bottom and make alittle tray so they cant make a hole and drain your feeder. Tie it to a tree and fill it up. My 10" feeder held just under100lbs

    You can seen mine in those trail cam pics

    Just a long section with screw on cap on top, and a cap with a small hole in the bottom. Mid way on the pipe screw a big hole in one side so you can screw the other side to a tree. Duct tape over the hole
    Make it only an inch off the ground so only a little corn will come out at a time

    I need to lower mine, too much feed gets out at a time and I'm constantly filling it. Keep it low to the ground and a small hole on the bottom

    The only things I don't like about them is that yes the the raccoons are all over it besides the deer. The corn goes in a heartbeat too. You can put a full tube of corn and two days later it will be all gone compared to an automatic feeder. I haven't used mine in two years but might put it up again this winter season due to crooks and thieves on my property. Don't want my auto feeder stolen when I haven't even tried it yet
