homemade deer feeders?
« on: September 24, 2008, 02:38:06 pm »

Looking for ideas on homemade deer feeders. Have scored big time on picking up spilled corn and soybeans. can't feed on hunting lease, but I have several acres planted in CPR at home and the deer population has really picked up.
 Would appreciate any ideas, plans,  pic's, etc. ???

5in Black corrugated (sp?) pipe and some zip ties. Place the bottom an inch or so off the ground and fill with feed, cap the top.  Couldn't be less expensive or easier. A good cap and zip ties instead of screws will keep the water out

I know this sounds crazy but 2-liter bottles work great. Fill them with corn and cut a cross on 2 sides. Fold the edges back and set them out. It is much more efficient than dumping a whole bag on the ground.

PVC pipe with slits cut in the bottom on top of a rock tied to a tree is a simple inexpensive remedy. I think someone above me posted the same thing.

Thanks for all the info. I made a trip to Mack,s last weekend and went ahead and bought a feeder. 75.00, which I thought was pretty reasonable.

If you think this is amazing, you ought to see what he does with young children and candy.  His last wife was 16 years old before they divorced last month.
