coyotes love apples or anything else with food nalue in it
Redrider , The pic of the ground blind I posted had to be abandoned because of the coyotes . When I first put it up .There was deer hitting the aples Then the coyoyes took over On the opening day for deer I went to wy stand to sit for the day and found not a deer track The roads all round my blind were full of coyote dropings full of my apples My son had a bear and coyote at his but not as thick as I had them. I had to relocate .Now I have numerous deer and 1 coyote track at my apples They will eat anything with food value in it .Talk about scavengers
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...
