Congrats to you both!! I have been home from the AFG for about a month now and am heading on my first elk hunt in the CO 2nd season. I think the woods is a great place for us to be and get some peace and perspective upon our return. I love being in the mountains where folks aren't trying to blow me up :) Best of luck for the rest of the season!! SFC B
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...
