Default Directional feeders

I am needing to buy a directional feeder for a lease in east Tx. My question is, who makes a good directional feeder kit so I can broadcast corn in a certain direction. I have a tight area on a narrow ridge between two creeks in come heavy woods.

Thanks Wil

Thanks Wil


Boss buck makes a really nice directional thrower. We use one and it has not given us any problems yet. Most of the brands you will find online, have a plastic spin plate and plastic housing. The Boss Buck is all metal.

Not going to be able to put a big feeder in this area. Something that will hold about 100# of corn due to me having to carry everything in. All I’m looking for is the feeder kit.

I’m not going with plastic because of the squirrels. I will build a Bracket to hang a metal feeder from that will hold 2-3 bags of corn. I am mainly looking for just the slinger part.

I have mine "redneck'd" to be a directional feeder. Took a piece of corrugated metal and made a plate to block the rear. It throws in a 210-230 degree pattern now. And make a great dinner bell when it goes off. You have no problem hearing corn bouncing off sheet metal at a high speed!!

This may work for you. Doesn't take up a lot of space. I have the 500lb version. It slings the heck out of the corn. almost too far for me. My first season using is. After the season I will move it back further because it really does throw corn.

I have used this one in a few different place over the past 4 years and it works well with corn and rechargeable 6 volts last a really long time in it. I have them run for 10-12 seconds which the battery still last a long time. Moultrie directional feeder I think its for fish feeders but works well.

Wil, those Krivo feeders are what I use too... Sucker will throw corn 30 yards or more, depending on how high you hang your feeder. I built mine up from 55 gal. drums, but the mechanism would fit on the bottom of a 35 gallon drum easily... could probably bolt it to a 5 gallon bucket if you needed to. It's a flat bolt up pattern. Send Mitch a PM or email and he can send you a sketch of the hole pattern... That's what I did... Use 'em for corn as well as pelletized fish food in my tanks... I run mine with "The Timer"... they come with a 12 volt motor and have a small compartment with a door to house the battery and timer...

I only use directionals and good ones! However, it sounds like you need a foreverlast 100 pound tree hugger. It looks like a tailgate feeder. You just strap it to a tree. I used it at two different places until someone stole mine. It worked great at both. Good Luck! I use Krivoman and Platinums they are both the bees knees!
