I hunted 53 last year and we killed a couple of does. They were hunted pretty hard before we got a chance and it turned out to be a good challenge. I love stalking spooked goatalopes as once and a while I have success but ususlly they bust me. Those 6X eyes are incredible, especially when 20 pair are searching the landscape for danger. Have fun guys and kill some critters.
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...
