Don't forget to update your PAL, renewal fee is waived until may 16/09. I just got mine renewed, good until Nov,2014 now, and all it cost was a mugshot, $ 13.00 at WallyWorld. After May 16th $ 60.00 or more for a renewal fee alone.
Here is an inexpenive and effective deer feeder I made recently.

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...
