I'm doing this. I especially like the fact that you can attach noise makers to it. At my farmstead, my travel trailer is only about 200 yards - through some trees - to where the pigs eat at my feeder and where I hunt. If I could do this, and hear them feeding it would reduce my time in the stand.

I'm curious. Let us know how the deer react to the pig pipe. I've seen deer kick and paw gravity feeders wondering if this would get the same reaction and use just one type of feeder.

I've used them. Work great. As others have said, once they find them, they'll flat wear a hole in the ground till every last kernal is out. Adding rocks helps. the rattle inside, keeps them interested. Only other advice i'd give is to go with a very strong eye bolt in the end you attach the chain/cable too. and use lock washers when you tighten it in. otherwise, over time, it comes out.

I have a question for the veteran corn pipe experts..........

do you guys think a big mature deer would be scared off by one of these?

I am about to build my first pig pipe but I want to keep my deer

Got this tie down idea from watching one of the Alaska shows. He'd use these to tie down his pups. Drive a 1.5 or 1.75" pipe ~3' into the ground and drop this stake into it. Fasten your pig pipe and its a done deal. Simple as dropping it in. Only concern is the size of the hole to fasten your chain/cable. Easy fix though.

Thoughts?

For those making new ones, I suggest taking a look at post 162. I was surprised at how many times I would go out and play find the barrel after I walked up on a t post with just a broken chain on it.

I put an arrow in this guy while he was pushing the drum around. Unfortunately, I didn't find him until the next week when I was looking for another hog I shot at the feeder. By then, there wasn't much meat left.

I am pretty new to hunting, and I've learned a lot of things the hard way. I tried buying lower weight rated quick links, swivels, chains all to save money, but the hogs definitely stress tested the materials and showed me that design mattered and materials mattered.

How do you incorporate the 162 design (it's missing pics so I can't see it all) with the cavity for marbles/rocks?
