I start feeding at my stations the monday after gobbler season goes out.(we cant hunt in the area of feeders durning the spring season).I keep my feeders full about 10 mo's. a year. I have 5 stations each using 100lbs. a mo.
In Fla. you have to have the stations in operation at least 6 mo's. to ba able to use them. this I approve of.

I am not a hunter I am a whitetail population reduction specialest

remember keep your back to the sun, your knife sharp, and your powder dry.

I started feeding Sept.1 this year. I think the deer were waiting on me at the feeder. I usually start in early Aug. I have 3 feeders and use 800lbs a week in each feeder.
