I’m going this weekend to change the times on my feeder so the deer get use to it!

Feeders are going to be wrong and need to be reset, happens twice a year. Factor in the shorter days and you see why its so important to get the timers set straight.

Ha. Good ones.

I have more issues trying to guess “sundown” 4 weeks from yesterday which is the next time I will be back at my lease. And trying to figure how few seconds to throw due to the enormous acorn crop. And trying to set one feeder to feed after the turkeys have gone to roost.
Painful except for my “set it and forget it” feeder. All good there!

Need to make myself a reminder alarm on my smart phone so I can get my timers adjusted

Thinking about developing a timer that automatically adjusts for time changes

Save a bunch of folks some headaches and probably sell them faster than I can get them made

Thats would be a money maker! Moving the clock an hour forward or backward triggers a lot of folks!

I have a Diamond feeder that the timer automatically adjust time for the time change. The problem it was designed back when we went back to standard time the second week of October so it changes the time before it actually changes. So now it's messed up because the politicians can't make up their minds.SMDH

Took a few hunts but the does and young bucks at my stand have accepted my presence so now they don't care what time I have the feeder go off.

Well dang it, always behind the curve

But thanks for saving me a bunch of time researching and developing one only to discover it has already been done and patented

Not a fan of moving back to standard time.

I definitely start hunting afternoon/evenings a lot more. Makes for an earlier start and finish to an evening sit. No question, I hunt less in the morning having to get up at 4:00 a.m. as opposed to 5:00 a.m.

We don't mess changing the feeder clocks to match the wrist watch. We do slightly adjust feed times due to the days getting shorter though.

Why dont we split the difference at 30 minutes and leave it there. DST is outdated.
