Default New feeder project.

Got a call from a superintendent this morning asking if I needed a 300 gallon water tank for the deer lease. "No, we have water, so not hauling but thanks". Well I just so happen to be on my way to that job site. I pull up and see the tank on the back of his truck and immediately think "that would make a heck of a protein feeder!" Luckily no one else had claimed it yet! So I've added this to the pile of "projects". Thankful the 4-H rifle season is almost over and I can get to work on my tank blind and then decide how I'm going to turn this into a big protein feeder.

Just a tip, and not trying to be a party pooper, but the plastic will condensate and swell the protein pellets... or did when I made one.

As long as it's it's not sealed up tight it shouldn't. I may cut the top open and fabricate a slip on lid
