We hang deer feeders by a home-made tripod constructed from three 12 foot or 14 foot 2X4s (or 4X4,s , depending on how big the feeder ) and t-hinges. Put a large eye bolt where the hinges come togather and hang the feeder from it.
We have found that bolting a boat winch to one leg of the tripod is necessary to hoist the feeder because of the weight of a full feeder.
The advantage if this set-up is the ease of relocating the feeder and removing it in the off season.
I recently made an 8 ft. tripod for my 30 gal. feeder. Welded some angled pipe onto a 1/8" plate and bolted the plate(bracket) to the barrel using rubber washers and silicone to prevent leaks. Then I used a larger dia. pipe(legs) to slide over the brackets and bolted together. The legs can be easily removed for transport. Works really well. I have to back my truck up to it to fill is the only bad thing.
In archery, repetitiveness is EVERYTHING.Same anchor point, same release action, same grip on the bow, same follow through... it all comes down to the N'th degree of "little" things making the final result of accuracy achievable.I made a test recently - I have two bows that I am going to hunt with this year - an older PSE and a new Bear.I have a set of arrows for each bow that are different in length.I have been shooting quite a bit and my groups are getting better - I have been out of...
