Default One & Done Feeder

Anyone try one of these yet?

I Picked one up at the UR Hunt Fest this weekend in Oklahoma.

Looks like a great feeder for the money.

It looks like rain would go down inside the barrel through the slot for the spinner/blower. That couldn't be good.

I talked to these guys quite a while at a show a couple months back. The way the opening is designed, unless the rain is coming in sideways, there should be no issue with water. Didn't have room to haul them or I'd have bought a couple.

Even if the rain did get it it would drain out below the corn which should make it a non issue.

This is varmint proof too and I don't need to hold 1k lbs of corn at my place.

I like the design a lot and would probably buy one if I needed another feeder.

I would prefer one around 400 lbs though.

looks like a nice design but wont even get a second look from me until they come out with ones that hold around 1000#s.

Their website could be improved upon. I bought the small version which is basically the size of a 55 gallon drum but they do sell one that probably is about 50% bigger. I don't see it on their website or it's specs.

It looks interesting though. I like how it applies to different adapters for different uses (Tripod/hangup/tree anchor/dock, pond use) I also like how everything is situated inside the barrel away from varmints and critters. And like Gunny said, i dont have a need for 1000#s of corn at my setups. 350-400 will do me just fine. If i needed an extra feeder, i would buy one or two. Looks like they are all over Louisiana and one near Athens which is close to home.

Still way too small since they say the 55 gallon one will hold about 250#s so 50% bigger would hold around 375#s.

The website does need some work. I did get a laugh at this testimonial from the website
“One & Done has to be one of the best feeders on the market. I used to change my feeder every season because the hogs would tear it up. One & Done is a BEAST!”– Miranda H.

Hogs would tear the feeder up every year. Miranda, you need to stop making feeders out of cardboard.

My next feeder will be a directional one but I will probably go with a Krivorman because I like his new design and I can get one that will hold at least 1000#s. I already have two of his older #1000 spin feeders and they are beasts.

x2 on all you said

Comical reviews by some clueless people.

Most of these new feeders and designs are junk. Holds way too little corn for my liking

Looks cool, but honestly think that a Krivoman directional is way more bang for your buck....

That may be and I'm in now way connected with the seller and am not trying to push a product at all.

I think a coon proof feeder that sits on the ground for easy filling that will throw corn 40 feet is a great deal at under $400 buck all included (except battery).

Is the bottom of the barrel perforated to allow water to drain, or would the barrel begin to fill up with water in a rainy spell?

I have been wanting to pull the trigger on one of these but haven't yet. If it's truly bear proof it would be worth it, nothing worse than checking feeders to see the bears have destroyed them. We have about got it down to where they can't tear them up but they still knock them down or sink thier claws thru the barrel.

That design is very similar to the only bear proof corn feeder we had in FL.
Although, that one would not be completely varmint proof in the Big Cypress in FL.
The bears there have figured out how to destroy almost any feeder made, they are pros.

There you can't have the cable exposed, bears pull on it shaking the corn out of the feeder or until something breaks.
The winch also can't be left exposed or they will eventually unlatch it and the feeder crashes to the ground.

A more varmint proof design is to run the cable inside the pipe up to the feeder and build a strong steel box around the winch that locks but swings out of the way to use the winch.

Folks that want bears back in TX don't have a clue what they are asking for, raccoons on steroids that aren't afraid of you. lol

You are correct. I've had some issues with this design. Mainly they will break the winch. I take the handle off and leave it pointing down. I too have bears and would be happy to give them away.

Only people that want bears are the people that don't have them.

Bears can stand and pull on motor about at 9'. Had it done. The pole was already welded and was drill stem. It was given to me so no need to modify. You notice I don't have it all the way up
