I hope it works, but Vaseline is super easy and cheap!

Easier and cheaper than a few slinky's? Somehow I doubt that.

Why would you doubt something so researchable



Easy to run Vaseline on 3' of a feeder leg, doesn't increase diameter, doesn't make any noise in the wind, doesn't take up much room in the buggy or truck, last a lil more than a year depending on direct sun.

I never imagined it would last a year. I stand corrected. Although, video of a slinky attempt would be funnier.

Lol. I don't know. When a coon thinks he can run up a leg and then hits a Wylie coyote oil slick it's pretty good stuff. Then to watch him prance around all sad and try to get it off his paws.....

Yes, and the same thing will happen to you when you mistakenly grab one of the poles or rub up against one. Poles will get covered in dirt and corn dust. I greased my feeder legs once and will never do it again.

My feeders are winch-up w/eliminator plates and nothing has gotten to them in several years.

Yup....the coons can eat all the corn they want before I do that shizzle again.....

Not to mention the smell to a new deer. I always wondered what a new mature buck from the neighbors who has never been to my feedpen and is not used to said grease smell in the woods, would do. What's he gonna think when he rolls up checking for does or corn and hits that new smell to him? I'm thinking there is a chance he is not going to like it.

Well since hunting deer at night is illegal, when most coons would come out to make them make noise , I'd like my chances more with a slinky than grease during the day..

Luckily I'm not gonna need either ....

I think Skinny is in kahoots with the slinky company. They haven't sold this many slinkys since the 80's!
