Internal deer corn funnel for 6.5 gallon can
« on: December 10, 2017, 09:43:54 PM »
Long back I bought a deer corn funnel. It fits nicely in my 6.5 gallon deer feeder. No corn wasted or getting old and moldy as all corn does get down the Shute to the spinner plate.

 It was made of a heavy almost thick cardboard  that does not get soggy as is is covered with some sort of protective layer of goop. It is sitting in my feeder in the woods  but I would like to buy more for my other 6.5 gallon feeders.

However, Google, eBay, Amazon. Cabelas etc - no luck at finding that item. Lots of feeder funnels for 30 and 50 gallon feeder but nothing for my 6.5 gallon feeder.

Next time feeder is empty I will take a photo if the funnel so you can check it out.

I just wish I could remember where I bought it and buy some more.

Anyone know of this item available anywhere?

Thanks!

don't know where you could buy one, but you could make one out of galvanized sheet metal.  check out this link.

Georgia is divided into the north and south regions. It's legal to use corn in south Georgia but illegal in north Georgia. I've got a few buddies that hunt in the southern zone and use feeders all the time. They also have hogs on there property. His experience using corn in their feeder's has cause most of the deer and hog activity to be nocturnal. During the off season I'll put out some corn with a trail cam to get an idea as to what bucks are around. 99% of those pictures are at night. Even if we could bait here in the north I really don't think that I would.

I found a YouTube video on what I was looking for. No one sells them, so I will take a "censored Word" at building one.

They guy in the video used a Black Foam PVC Sheet (Common: 18-in x 24-in; Actual: 18-in x 24-in) .

He took the top of a small aluminum trash can(he also used the can as a feeder can); took the lid off and made a circle on the PVC sheet, he cut a hole dead center on the sheet that was the size of the deer downspout. He then cut the PVC in half and put them in the bottom of the can. It was a bit bigger than the can so it worked to be another funnel.

I will buy some nuts, washers and wing nuts. The one I bought way back when from someone I can not remember put some caulk or similar over the nut/washer/wing nut when done to,protect them from rust.

So , i will give this a shot. I ordered the PVC square from Lowes, it should be here by the weekend

Here is this guys approach:

I prefer the American Hunter Feeder with Varmint Zapper. I also ordered the Moultrie Pro Magnum Feeder for the bucket .i will use with the PVC funnel project.

I also got this
https://m.dickssportinggoods.com/p/moultrie-hanging-deer-feeder-hoist-16mteahngngfdrhsthbg/16mteahngngfdrhsthbg

A pian to put together and heavy. I cant hang it too high as I need to be abke to reach the handke. It does help hang the feeder away from the tree so .i hope it casts better.

I will post photos of my project when done

Looks easy enough, you should do okay with the build if you don't get stuck with the aluminum tape  --099-780 Good Luck, looking forward to seeing the finished product.  0-0-0-
