    pine deer and electrionic feeders.

    purchasing a very small piece of land in zone 65, i don't know anything about pine deer but thought an electric feeder might scare the piss out of them because I've heard them deer are extra spooky. would a silent gravity feeder be a better idea ? I understand zone 65 isn't very good hunting, no need for negative comments.

    You can condition deer more than you think. I would use the electric feeder and start now

    They can be edgey. Lol. Start it now. If you want funny footage put a trail cam on video mode and place by the feeder when it goes off. You'll swear those deer have wings. If your lucky you'll have some of those elusive pigs show up. If they do...don't tell anyone lol

    Some spots, the sound of the feeder going off brings 'em running in like a dinner bell. Let them get accustomed to it well before,the season starts. Don't expect any slammers on the feeder, but secondary trails about 50yds off the feeder,would be ideal for intercepting scent checking bucks.
    I piss off stupid people...

    Just remember with a gravity feeder...non stop feeding...could and will possibly turn deer nocturnal...varmints gonna go on a frenzy. I speak from experience with gravity feeders....I only use them for winter supplements now. Just my 2 cents

    Big pine bucks will come to the bait in the daylight. I always have been wary of using a feeder though.

    I'm not much of a fan but if you're going to use one, good luck.

    I hunt private in zone 65.. I could never hand in long enough to see my deer become accustomed to a feeder .. It took months for them to even eat at night .. After 18 months I was lucky to get a dozen pic a week and all of them at night. It did see the random fawn in shooting hours but that's it. Pulled it and they were hammering corn on the ground the same week.
