Several folks have asked about how to build the feeders I have in the pictures I've been posting. So I thought I put a "how to" deal here. http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y31/3006/DGC_0102r.jpg The feeder above is a 4 1/2 foot piece of 4 inch PVC, with a street L 90 on the end, then put a street 45 on the end of the 90, bore a few 1/4 inch holes in the very lowest part of the elbows for drainage. Put a PVC cap or a plastic bottle with the bottom cut off over the other end for a lid. Bore a hole all the way through the pipe about 10 inches from the top to run a wire through to swing it by or you can just tie it to a tree or post. You can make the feeder any length you want, it'll hold about 5 pounds to the foot. If you swing it length doesn't much matter, if you tie it solid to a tree or post about 4 feet is as long as you need it because if you tie it 18 inches or so off the ground you need to be able to pour feed into the top of it. As to what I feed, I've fed lots of whole corn over the years and it works good, but the last 6 months I've been using a mixed feed we have made to feed our cattle. It's a 16% protein feed thats made of : Ground corn, soybean hulls, cotton seed meal, corn gluten feed and a mineral mix. The deer like it better than the corn, I ran out of feed a few weeks ago and went and bought a couple of sacks of corn to fill the feeder till I got a load of feed in, they ate about 1/3 as much straight corn as they do the mix. One tip on buying corn, don't buy deer corn, you're paying extra for that picture of a deer on the sack. Go to a feed store or farmer's coop and buy whole feed corn, same thing but should be cheaper, also watch a lot of "deer corn" is in 40 pound bags, feed corn at the feed mill will be in 50 pound bags. It's all #2 yellow corn, that's the standard feed corn, just cheaper if its sacked for cows. Hope this helps, good hunt'n.
