hey yall,
im lookin to get a feeder for my deer property. I have seen tons of different kinds..i was lookin a 5 gallon hangin feeder. seems pretty easy and reasonably priced. My question is.. is that the right kind to get?..i think it would work great from where my stands are, and now that i have the whole summer to prep the newly acquired land i got just before permit shotgun this past season i want to do it right. also about how many times do you guys have your feeders spittin out feed? any information will be great![up]


i also have heard of making some homemade feeders, does anyone have one and if so how is it made? pics would be cool!

thanks guys:D

Go with a 30 gal feeder you will spend less time filling in and more time hunting.Set it for twice a day an am feeding around 7am and 6 seconds and again around 4pm same time.We use multrie pro hunter motors on 30 and 55 gal cans.We set them 20 feet up in the air to spread the corn out in a greater area,this makes the deer search for the corn rather then standing in one spot feeding.It will give you better shot opp's

Great advice.
Make sure it is all metal or the squirrels will eat right threw it.

if you use the 5 gallon one you will have to fill it every week ,get a 30 gallon one at least they last a long time when set on 2 feeds per day ,the small ones are a waste unless you live on the land and have time to carry 50 lbs back to it
