I had just upgraded from a small 5-gallon Moultrie feeder that runs out rather quickly, to a 225 lb. Moultrie feeder.
Like my smaller one it is programable with up to I believe 6 different times per day you can let feed drop. I have it set now only for the morning at 8:30 am, and evening for 5:30 pm.
Now I am able to leave it in the woods longer without refilling, before I was always in every 2 weeks and it had always been empty, it was probably empty even after the first week but I did not want to scent up the area to much. I plan now on refilling about every 4 weeks. I got it running dropping corn for 8 seconds every time it goes on, its supposed to be about 1-1/2 pounds per drop.
My question is, if you use a feeder, do you take advantage of using any additional time settings besides morning and evening and if so why? My reasoning for the times I chose is that I can possibly get deer to stay on my property and then hope to get them to come to my stand area when I'm hunting in the morning or late afternoons, without overdoing it and spending alot on the corn.
By the way, I am not hunting over the feeder, but off a trail that leads to it. (75yards or so).
