That looks good my man. I did not think of the ammo can.

The feeder looks great. On the next one, you could weld the bolts to the backer plate and not have to tap it. Guaranteed not to back off.

I thought about going that route. I had to take into account my welding skills at this point as well.

We got it all set up this morning, just before it got really hot. Now we will check the camera in a week or so.

Great upgrade and nice build. Like someone else said if you notice the coons still spinning your feeder plate you need a cage the same diameter as the barrel. My experience in the past has been that a coon can still reach the plate with a 12”x12” Cage, it needs to be out to the edge of the barrel or you just put a cage on there to give them something to hold on to.

Hate to spoil your party here brother....but that coon cage ain’t worth a shiney nickel. The coons use that as a jungle gym and can reach that gate style spinner plate. Trust me

Man oh man! Houston we have a coon Problem! This weekend a new varmint cage is getting built. My son and I snuck out to the woods yesterday to see if a hog would show up to the feeder. When I pulled the card I noticed a reoccurring theme... I will post some pics tomorrow. About 9 pm every night the coons show up and sling as much corn as they want. Shortly there after a hog about 250 shows up and eats his fill. Then a dozen or so eater hogs show up and hang out until it is all gone.

I think you already knew from reading this thread that the varmit cage was in trouble. Good job on building your feeder. This is a very well described and detailed build also. Thanks for sharing.

Building almost an exact copy, but with a double varmint cage. One outer cage from the barrel out to the ground, and a small inner cage like normal. Hope it works!

So we topped it off and installed the wire panels. We even put the game camera on video mode to hopefully see some disappointed coons.
