This are a few pictures of my feeder from last week,..never took a shot.
So, how do I set up my Hog feeders ?
1st of all I make a skirt for the bucket so it doesn't spray the corn everywhere, but makes it drop straight down
Then a start a hole right under, initially I put some corn laced with something to get the hogs into it.
once they start they will keep digging day after day and make quite a big hole out of it.
What's the advantage ?
first it will make the hogs work to find all the feed hidden under displaced dirt, also it will make them stand still rather then go crazy mopping corn off the forest floor, and it will last longer, it takes them longer to finish it.
An other thing, use 50/50 rather then Whole corn, can mix in some of the Whole corn just to give them a reward but the 50/50 makes them work much more and lasts a lot longer on the ground.
This is the feeding grounds today,...has rained a lot this week
