Different types of bait and lures have been used in hunting for hundreds of years. A deer feeder, also known as a game feeder can be a great addition to your hunting tools if you’re lucky enough to live in an area that allows the use of deer feed for hunting.
What is a Deer Feeder?
Deer feeders or game feeders are excellent tools used for the purpose of population control, herd health, game management, wildlife watching, and of course, hunting. The basic idea behind deer feeders is to draw in and retain game on your property or land. Nowadays, game feeders became very sought after by hunters due to their efficiency, convenience, and reliability.
Automatic deer feeders feature digital timers and motors to spread the feed evenly around them.
Since solar panels became more reliable and cheaper to produce, game feeder manufacturers started using them in their products, meaning that hunters don’t have to re-visit their feeders periodically to replace batteries.
The benefits of an automatic Deer Feeder
An automatic deer feeder is one of the best investments a hunter can make. While some game feeders work through gravity or other mechanisms, they do not offer the same reliability and evenness of the spread of an automatic deer feeder.
There are certain considerations to keep in mind before buying your deer feeder. For example, you will need to decide how big a feeder you’ll need. If you visit your hunting area rarely, it’s wise to opt for a feeder with a larger capacity, since you won’t have to refill it as often.
You can also opt for a solar-powered deer feeder if the area is inaccessible for a few weeks or months a year. On the other hand, if your land is close by or easily accessible, you can opt for a smaller feeder.
