Default Feeders

Hey guys i just got a feeder for valentines day. It's a wildlife feeder 30 gallon i think and has an analog timer on it. Well my question is this....It didn't come with a tripod, so what is the best way to get this thing in the air? i didnt know if a branch would be best or using a chain from a higher limb or if i can buy a tripod to hold it on???? Thanks for the advice

what we do is find a branch that is sturdy enough to hold the feeder and the rig up a pulley system so that it will be easy to raise/lower the feeder regardless of whether it is full or not...it works pretty well as long as you plan on having the feeder in one spot for a decent amount of time

Yeah we have one hung over a limb high up for a good spread. We tie it to the tow hooks on the front of a truck and back it up the tree.
