I put alot of time in on this one. Many day's scouting and looking for sighn. It takes alot of patience and time if you want to get one with a bow. My brother and friend both got a bear the same day but they were riffle hunting. There is nothing like toying with a bear at 40yrds, meaning I gave a little grunt right before I released the arrow to stop the bear in its tracks I'm stoked
Here is an inexpenive and effective deer feeder I made recently.
No batteries to go dead, no hoisting it up in the tree, plenty of capacity, very easy to fill - so far, I love it.
I have made two of these and they are easy to build.
An empty 55 gallon drum, some 2x4's, some PVC tubing and fittings, a little bit of hardware and some paint - and you are ready to go.
I designed it so you can stand on the lower rung and fill it - the top is about 6.5 feet above the ground.
It holds about 375...
