Default Inconspicuous Yard feeder

Wanted something that didn't scream "slow down and look for deer at the feeder" or at least look like the traditional deer feeder. I cut down a old barrel and added a funnel so it will hold a 40lb bag of corn. I used a Moultrie Pro Magnum feeder because that are all metal so nothing can chew them up (Coons army a problem and if so are shot on sight). The removable Slide under feeder is made from 1/16" galvanized sheet metal. Have it set to throw one bag of corn a week.

1 bag a day? If I were feeding that many deer I would slowly introduce protein and cut way back on quantity. JMO....
