Yes, I laughed hard at your comment. These are Ohio bucks. I have actually seen deer inside of the tub. Can't give baths to CO bucks. It holds a good 50 pound mineral lick and when it rains it creates a nice mineral stream.
Damn batteries died in the trail cam so after setting it up Saturday in a primo spot the darm thing died after 3 pics Sunday night - so just a doe and nothing else captured up until this morning when I picked it up - ARGH!!!!! I need to get rechargeable batteries. New batteries in place and placed the cam in a whole new field - looking for the moster buck that is supposed to be there. We will see by Thursday morning!
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...
