Default RE: feeders

If you want to feed pellets try the purina watershed series. They are supposed to be able to not get moldy like other pellets, but I have not tried them.

Default RE: feeders

there is one feeder that is called the stright shooter that the feed is not exposed,so it will not mold.
Don't know if it will be what you need or not.
Just try putting corn in an automatic and it doesn't mold.the deer love it.fix you feed station for the pellets,only put a little at a time till they get to eating them good and then increase the amount.

Default RE: feeders

You may want to try this type of feeder. The right side is a drum with 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 upside down V's cut in the bottom , that only some much corn can come out. As the wildlife (Deer and Turkeys) eat the corn can keep flowing from the V's. The lid on top is sealed so dampness stays out. Very inexspencive to make.



The reason this feeder is so high off the ground is because of snow levels...BT
