If you had to use one feeder for deer, gravity style, what would it be?
Everyone I've tried the damn squirrels eat it up before the deer get to it.......BUTTTTTTTTT, here is one you might try if you wish...

We use bossbuck feeders. While I've been pleased with them, I wouldn't go so far as to say don't look at any others. I'd recommend them but Creeks suggestion looks very interesting. Redneck makes some decent ones too I think.
I've tried boss buck, moultrie, Redneck, etc.....My last one was the Redneck Post Feeder......Same problem, I put PVC around T post, it don't make a darn....the darn squirrels just jump instead of climb up on feeder.....LOL
I think it's best just to throw or scatter it out in a large area.....that way you don't have to see the squirrels invading your feeder....LMAO
Yeah I don't think there's any way to keep squirrels off them. I've never noticed a problem with squirrels though on any of ours. What plagues ours are coons. Doesn't matter how many of the damn things I trap, there's always a billion more to take their place. I see squirrels on ours from time to time and on the ground quite a bit but not to an extent I worry about and I have cameras set up on all of them.
Now my bird feeder here at home, that's a different story. lol
A chainsaw I can make more food with that for the least amount of money for years to come
Food plots are also relatively cheap but they are hard to plan right to provide 24/7/365 food and even when planned right, nature has a way of flipping you the bird. Also in some cases, where a feeder is needed, it's the only viable option. If a person wants a feeder they want a feeder.
Were talking feeders here troll
I'm pretty sure the Ohio Rules state you shall have no less than 1 feeder per 100 acres of hunting land.
we did for a few years in off season use a battery timed one which didn't hold enough as the does discovered they could just lick the spinner and have corn come out all the time....was nuts
I am using the muddy 200 lb gravity feeder this season and it seems to be going just fine. I took out the agitator since I really didnt see a point in it... but wasn't a bad buy a while back for $100, Just is kinda time consuming putting it all together screw by screw.
I use the banks gravity feeder and it works great. My problem isn't squirrels, it's raccoons! They will climb the center post and hang from the feed ports. The feeder itself is great, it's light weight and I don't see any reason it won't last forever.
