    Default Local Sanctuary

    I am fortunate to live next door to 1600 undeveloped acres on the Lake. My next door neighbor to the east is a 10 minute boat ride. I have a corn bucket next to my house to give the deer a quick snack and some safety. These guys showed up recently

    Nor have I ever seen a feeder like this. How does it work?

    Hole in bottom of bucket is slightly larger than the rope. Rope is attached to a board at top of bucket. When deer shake the rope, the corn falls out. Or when it is really windy the corn will fall out. I have had this particular one (which is actually a metal trash can) for 10 - 12 years.

    Our deer in Alabama do not typically have big bodies, just normal. I thought these were larger than I have seen in the area. Maybe they are just full of corn.

    Thanks, learned something new (again) today. How'd you teach the deer to shake the rope?

    It is fun to watch how different deer will get the corn to fall. Check this out:






    Some deer actually bite the rope and swing it, others stick their mouth right at the hole in the bucket.

    The 2x4 board is right at the top of the can, held there with screws from outside in.
    The rope has to be replaced often. The squirrels and racoons fray it in a hurry
    When I buy new rope, I get extra and wrap a good bit around the 2x4. When the current rope has a frayed end, I just cut it off, and unroll some from board.
