Default Large Protiein Feeder Build

Hi I just completed a protine feeder bike and thought I'd share it with everyone. I used 16ga sheet metal and 2x2x3/16" square tube for the frame. The top frame was 1x1x1/8" square tubing since most of the weight was going to be below that. I used 5" round tube for the feed ports and made some small trays to catch any feed that falls. Any questions let me know. Thanks I'm not sure why the pics are all sideways

Nice job on the build! If you have coons, they're gonna love the perches you've provided for them ;-)

They love protein, I have seen several pope and young coons turn into booners in less than a season.
