It holds a special place in my heart. This bull was not the biggest shot last year. There was a 380" plus bull shot in the same area i got mine the same hunt. I shot my bull in a burned area that had burned the year before. this summer the Caldera was on fire again. so in the last 3 years 2/3's of the Valles Caldera has burned.
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...
