I think that it is up to us hunter to get the DNR out of Trouble. If the DNR would have been on top of heard size seven years ago we would not have this problem today. The Heard did not reach its max holding capasity over night this has been going on for years.I remember when i was a boy in Burnett County Wi it was not uncommin for me to see 30 + Does and fawns a year. If the DNR is truly worred about this issues do not go to earn a buck make the season a 16 day season like Minnesota does it will allow more hunter to get to the wood for a longer time frame.
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...
