Make a bump feeder. Use a metal container, otherwise critters will eat the plastic or PVC

I made two bump feeders and the deer NEVER figured them out. The coons and the squirrels figure it right damn out.

Here is the coon working it. Not sure how to embedd this but its public on my facebook, you should be able to watch it.

Then the squirrels learned to jump on the pole and pole dance and corn rained on them. They would also jump from the tree to the top of the bucket and shake the bucket and make corn fall

The deer, never figured it out. I guess they could if I shot all other animals.

I can’t keep a plastic feeder in my backyard without the squirrels ruining it. Some last a week and some last a month but they chew a hole in them every damn time.

I have two boss buck gravity feeders that work well for just allowing deer to get to the corn.

Once nice thing beyond being cheap and battery free is that you can gauge traffic based on how much corn is consumed.

Longer and/or wider pipe holds more corn. You can also add a hopper for more volume between refills. Just elevate about 5' or so, (fence, sign, or tree and a little bungee cord is all that is needed for vertical support . Don't use in bear country :-)

I had deer on the bump feeder regularly. Squirrels get to it too but they are basically free to make from old drywall bucket and piece of broom handle so if it get destroyed its no biggie. Had it out from October till a week ago
