Anyone beside me using them? Made mine out of 55 gal plastic barrels from work and cut a hole in the bottom side. Used a toilet flange reversed, short piece of 3" pipe, end cap and hole cut in top of barrel. I use a 3-4"adaptor for filling them up as it makes it a lot easier. They cleaned out my 300lbs of feed from a while ago and added another 400lb of pellet today. Gotta grow them up for the fall.

I bought one of these Moultrie feeders to move around easily as a complete unit. The 4 aa batteries last several months and you can feed several times per day up to 8 seconds. The feeder head is $30 or so, and I like them enough to use on feeders that I make. I can supplement the feed without going broke.D034AD9D-5048-4D30-9B5B-D66BFE35B975.jpeg

Where did you get the spinner head at? We do have an old Moultrie (and I mean old) 30gal tripod feeder still sitting out in the woods. The feed will cost me a few dollars; but still probable cheaper (and a lot less work) than what it would take to make food plots back in the woods. The other things is that I can feed them during the really lean months to give them a head start for following year.

Built this one last year. So far it's held up pretty good, other than the tube that drops to the feeder is starting to come apart. It feeds twice per day and with the 55gal drum the feed last a for a long time.

There are some permanent sporting good stores with physical locations that sell on ebay. I buy close outs from them at the end of season. Even climbing stands etc. with shipping can be great deals. Normally I don’t even look at sellers with less than 200 feedback for anything over $20. Not much of a trophy, but a cool running picture from the trail camera setup about 250 yards from my house. You can see the feeder overhead.6BD25100-62BF-421B-9C23-7572B61DEA8E.jpeg
