30 gallon moultrie feeder

Postby Budrick » Tue Jan 08, 2013 11:29 am

I just bought a 30gl Moultrie hanging feeder.My intent is too supplement feed my deer herd.We lease 800 acres in southern Missouri.We already have a 10acre food plot in summer it was in corn.This winter it is 5acres winter wheat 3 acres rye and 3 acres oats.Our herd is close to or over 100 deer.Not sure what to feed I have been reading a lot about Record-rack and Purina and I know deer love corn but we only use corn for trail-cam sites.About half the herd comes to the food plot ever night and the others feed in the 200 acres we bail,about 5 different fields .Not sure of the buck to doe ratio but have seen up 7 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 yr old buck 120 to 130 in the food plot at one time on our first trip to the new lease in late Nov.These are acorn deer and because of the drought there are no acorns left.Any and all help welcome

Seems like your not doing too bad.
I looked at the Purina website. Quite a few options. Have you read up on them and tried to determine what might be best for your scenario?

I have read for days but everyone says the are the best and I have not used a feeder since the early 80s.I just need a little help turning these 120 to 130 into 150 4yr old and that would be big for the area,But I really think we can pull it off with help.What you get is to see all the trail cam photos and i am a nut about harvest photos of my bucks.I have 7 pope and young bucks and 15 over 120in
