Sharpstick first off Welcome to BGH!!! Second off...Just about all the southern states have hogs and MOST of them have hog PROBLEMS! So about all of them have open seasons year round on hogs and have plentiful #'s. South Carolina, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, And Texas are your most prevolent Hog States.
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...
