Cervid: Whitetail Deer


I have had the 4 stall Thunder Valley feeders for about 8 years now and besides having to replace the bird stoppers in the front they are as good now as day one.

They always have if they go. Its a long way out there this year so not sure they will make the trip. They donate some to Nadefa at times.

I would like to buy one of the cone feeders they sell that attaches to a grain bin. If they are going to be there I would like to see if they would bring us one.

If you have the $$ Mike Ford sells an automatic one from Preiert that you might look into.* Not sure his best contact, but can find him or Lori Ford on facebook to contact them.

I found that making your own is very simple and you can save a little money, especially if you have some old game feeders around. I modeled mine after the thunder valley feeder and it worked very well when I was using is but I prefer a trough feeder that way I can keep a little closer eye on them.*Ill post a picture of it when I get home tonight.

I use trough feeders in my breeder pens. I am putting a 5 ton grain bin in the preserve. I want to try the Thunder Valley cone with the feeding tubes on it in there.
