We have used them but was hard for us to pattern hogs. In and out alot but never know when. Would be fine now that I hunt at night.

The only other thing I didn't like was that it was harder for me to get a bow shot cause they were EVEN MORE constantly moving and rooting more so than at a feeder.

Pipe feeder I made 8 years ago now.

I ended up using a soda can, bailing wire and duck tape to close off some holes and limited the pipes 2 holes. Newer pipes I have made received 2-3 holes (one at the bottom, middle and top) in a spiral.

Welded a swivel to a bolt and attached it to the cap end and then glued it on the pipe. Threaded cap on the other end to fill it.

Put a rebar ring on the other end of the chain and welded a 1/2 horse shoe to a piece of 4' rebar as a stake. The horse shoe keeps the ring from coming off.

Put the ring down and drive the rebar stake down. Never lost one or had a chain bind up.

I usually just add plain corn to the pipe. Every now and then I'll add a packet of strawberry jello in with the corn.

Last pic: I add little extra corn laced with a pack of strawberry jello to area before sitting for the evening.

I like using a white light to illuminate the area vs. a red or other color light.

I built one awhile back and put it out in a creek bed the hogs found it and emptied it in one night I had a crap ton of photos on my TC so I refilled it and once again they emptied the only problem is that it was impossible to pattern them

I have two and the pigs broke the swivels on both of them. I bought some heavier swivels and put two on each one. One at the ring on the post and one at the eye bolt at the pipe. I didn't glue my fittings, just used self tapping screws, in case something broke I could just replace components not a whole set up.

I have two here and haven't filled it up in a while.

It works and they will drag all over place. I don't attach it stationary but rather movable such as cinderblock. Make sure your tc is far enough to capture wide angle rather than close up because it will get out of tc's way.

Good luck!

Maybe the best way to hunt pigs ever. They hold them there all night. Hang out at camp, do a midnight stalk to check the pipes. No pigs head back to camp to hang out with everyone and repeat. If they show up they stay till the corn is gone or you blast them.

Thanks for the reminder, I might stop and the depot on the way home today.

Had good luck with them. If the hogs really get after them, they will go through the whole thing really quick. I started drilling 4 holes in my first couple of pipes and then backed off to 3 after seeing how quickly they go through it. I also see a alot of deer nudging it around.

Well got one of them set out last Friday. Put about quarter of a bag of hog wild in it for smell and about 20 pounds of corn filled it up. Hoping for action as the are has a bunch of pigs aling the creek.

This feeder is about 700 yards to the east.

Built one this past weekend and set it out. Bought some solar powered flood lights at Lowes and mounted them on a stake aimed down at the pipe. Hopefully they like the set up.

Had to close 2 of the 4, 5/8" holes in mine today. They were emptying it to fast. I do have a good looking "Crop Circle" the feeder made. I watched it one morning, and had 2 groups of sows and piglets come in and 2 boars. I will let them go to bow season, then let the hammer down!

I always put a few rocks in mine that are sure to be to big to fall out. It keeps the pigs coming to the pipe once they know its a usual food stop. I have watched two very aggravated pigs root at a pipe filled with only rocks for over 20 minutes. They were flipping the pipe in the air.

Here's a pic of one we had set up. The pigs found it in a hurry. I drilled a hole through the cap, put a swivel on each end and used a cable instead of chain. The threaded end is on the far end. Didn't want the pigs to somehow unscrew the cap and push the pipe who-knows-where. I only put 2 holes in this one. Usually drops 2-3 kernels each time.

Setting mine up next week. I've got rocks in the end cap of mine and rocks in the tube also. 4 holes so we'll see if that's too many or not. Anxious to put it in action!

I put two of them out a few weeks back, going to check them this next weekend. Mine have 5 holes with rocks in the bottom. Have a report theyve been moved a little and have a bit of mud wiped on it. Hopefully will give me a few extra setups this fall.

I don't think the holes are big enough as it still had a lot of corn in it. Pics of pigs rolling it around quite a bit though.

I put out two of them a few weeks ago. Went back two weeks later to check on them and the one at my stand hadn't been touched AT ALL!! But apparently the piggy's at my dads stand are a little smarter because his was completely empty!! We put a camera on his after we filled it back up. Hopefully they've learned what to do at mine by now. lol
