Feeder question answered....I hope.

The trough feeder idea I got from an old friend and a lesson in the dangers of feeding on the ground.  It'll hold right at 30# of feed which is mixed evenly between Rice Bran, 12% Sweet Feed, Record Rack (I was using Purina Deer Chow until my supply run dry) and I'll throw in about a pound of corn and a double handful of Stock Salt.  I have to fill it up pretty much weekly, it'll usually have a little Rice Bran left in it after 7 days but if I go any longer than that they have the plywood licked clean.

Good looking pictures!! Is that off one of your home brew cameras?
Yeah, this is using a Sony S40 and Yeti board in a 1040 case.

Nice pics. Looks like you will have some nice bucks in a few more years.
If I can hold them here, which is unlikely, they'll be safe cause I ain't got a pic of anything I'll shoot.  I've got 7 more cameras setup but I got them looking down trails so I don't get many pics from them, but I do have some from one with some WTI 30.06 Plus or something like that I poured out.

I have seen two shooters on the place but have yet to get them in front of a camera. @--0--0117

This is some pics on the WTI, it's was kinda bitter tasting so I mixed in some Rice Bran to help out.






This is on a game trail connecting two fields.  We've started keeping our fences rows 30-40 wide to help with the quail and rabbit habitat.

does anybody find that using a trail camera that uses flash at night instead of IR spooks deer from the area?  I have been looking at buying a couple of cameras but the prices have been a bit discouraging.  Anybody got any suggestions?  Also those are some great pics you have here!  thanks for showing us!

I don't believe there's a set in stone rule on that but for the most part I would have to say the flash really don't bother them.  At one time I had my cameras setup to take a pic every 15 seconds (that's about as fast as the flash can recharge) and have 15-20 pics of the same deer.

Thanks for the recipe.  That sounds like something I should try.

Be patient, I started out mixing it about 50% corn and slowly backed it off to the one pound that I now feed because without the corn in it they wasn't hitting it.  The corn was added for it's attraction value to get them started on it.

That's a nice gang you got hanging around. I really didn't see any shooters in the pictures yet, give them all a few years and who knows what you really have. Keep up the good work.
