Has anyone tried adapting a deer corn feeder to dispense pellets? They electronically dispense up to six times per day, and it looks like you could use something like a 5-gallon bucket to make a funnel to prevent the device from scattering the feed over a 40-foot circle, instead causing it to fall into a feeder tray...
They seem to start at $40, and the tripod-mounted kit sells for $100 at the local supershop. Maybe it could be placed just outside the fence, with a plastic pipe from the bottom of the automated dispenser leading into a feed dish? Any other ideas?
Here are a couple links (copy & paste) to examples on Amazon:
Maybe even add a bell to sound when it dispenses (way over on the farthest side of the turnout trail, naturally ;->).
1 out of 1 found this valuable. Do you?
