Congrats to both of you. I grew up in Choteau and used to go in on horseback 15 to 20 miles, anything past 10 miles from the border used to be open for rifle during bow season. I am putting in for the big bull permit in the Elkhorns, but if that does not work I will see you up in Gods country (The Bob).
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...
