Have your wife/GF/Bf/SO slap you about the face till you stop entertaining any thoughts of pulling money out for WGI products.
Then have them do it again.

I would have to agree with this. Cameras junk, feeders junk, and the owner is junk.

Yep, don't touch it. Even if it's free, then you have to find a place to dispose of it. Can't believe they're still in business.

Anything they make is junk. Pigs wear that thing out in a week.

Feeder itself would maybe last one season if your lucky.

Wait 450lb feeder for $150? That junk can be upgraded some. Drive t-posts in the ground and attach to the legs.

Beer can thin material. I would be shocked to see it hold 450 without collapsing. That said I bought a similar design made by Old Man Tree Stands and I'm still using it 10 years later. I did however weld a new exoskeleton for it and replaced the motor and timer once.

Then buy a new timer and motor for it, then get rid of the Racoon jungle Jim they call a varmint cage and buy or build another cage that actually works. Then in a year or two when that thin metal starts to fail buy a new feeder. NO THANKS.

Is this the product line that the owner was found guilty for killing to many Elk and tried to cover the crime up?

Yes it is. I've purchased one item from them, a trail camera about 5 years ago. Piece of junk form the work go. I've never liked their TV show, don't watch it at all, and will never buy another product of their again.
