Deer Feeder Legs & Brackets – Why are they important?
Deer feeder legs and deer feeder leg brackets are some of the most important components of an automatic deer feeder – they keep it safely off the ground and away from critters that would love to nibble away at the corn or protein stored within them. The legs and brackets also ensure that your timed protein feeder has a stable foundation from which to disperse the feed. Keep in mind that forest soil is generally less stable than other types of compact soil – this is due to the different layers of decomposed leaves and vegetation. Apart from that, the soil might also become softer due to rainfall or even snow, so it’s worthwhile to ensure that your deer feeder legs and feeder leg brackets are fixed in place. Due to your feeder’s position, various animals might push it or rub against it, but when using the proper height legs that’s unlikely to happen. This is why hanging deer feeders have an advantage for situations where you want to place your feeder on an animal trail but you don’t want them to effectively reach it.
Deer Feeder Legs Installation and Placement
Before deciding on where to place your deer feeder, it’s worthwhile to scout out the adjacent area for any deer trails. After you pick a spot, clear the area of any leafs or forest vegetation to improve your feeder’s overall stability. You don’t want to place the corn feeder directly on the trail, but somewhere close to it, ideally near an opening without too much vegetation that would hinder your deer from finding the feed. You can also use rocks or even logs to secure the legs in place. If your feeder has a solar panel, it’s a good idea to place it where it can recharge its batteries quickly.
