A few night time visitors.
« on: September 02, 2017, 10:19:21 AM »
This feeder is about 40' from the ground I'm anticipating turning into to a long lean clover patch in a pine row.
Wiley E. Coyote came by and a few days later several bucks I had not seen on camera.  There is a spike by the feeder and the 2 other bucks with the bunch that were rambling in the rain that night.

Is that a pickle barrel you used for the feeder? Lots of folks this way are using them now, they are very sturdy plastic. A lot of folks are also using them for rain barrels, just add a spigot at the bottom for watering their gardens.

You need to do something about that yote, a little lead poisoning seems to be in order  --09--0

Gutshot, that is a red pickle barrel, they have a molded ridge that makes them easy to suspend with an iron clamp and yoke.  The barrels that are now available are black and slick sided.  I've made a sheet metal cone to fit inside both of my feeders like this.  Been using them for many years.

Yari, the bucks don't show up too often.  You can count on the does, yearlings and young bucks most of the time.  The rut usually will bring a cruising buck to check on the girls as they are addicted to the food plots and the shelled corn.

This feeder is set to go off twice a day 7am and 4pm, it runs for about 4 seconds and throws out maybe a little over a pint at a time.  When the weather gets cooler we usually increase the spin time to increase the amount.  Actually there are several old does that will come and lick the spinner plate and cause the grain to gravity out onto the empty spinner plate.  I could eliminate this by extending the tripod height but it has worked too long to worry about it.
