I have one hand em high winch up and 5 other winch ups. Coons climb up the hang em high and the others when in the area. I comment on it when I notice. You can tell by seeing mud on the leg that has the cable and the solar panel wire will be pulled out some.

Well I tryed the slinky trick but does not work for me, coons have them so streched out they were all the way to the ground. It looks like they were using them to bungy jump. Not sure how they did it but one they have partially unraveled and pulled loops off the leg. So it may work for some but evidently my raccoons are way to tough to be slowed down.

I have two winch ups in Trinity Co. In two years I've seen one fox squirrell on the feeder. Coons are on the ground. Bonus is: deer don't seem to be bothered as much by the winch ups. Even the bigger bucks.

I put slinky's on my All Seasons and have not gotten a single photo of a squirrel or coon on the cage since. I'm a believer. I do have have "pre-slinky" pics of them hanging on the cage.

While I haven't gotten any pics of them on the feeder, and some of you may say I'm just not getting them when they're up there, the spinner plate position never changes until after a feed time has passed. In the past, I could see between some pics that it had been rotated.

Well since July 11, 2017, when I installed the Slinky's, I haven't had any coons get corn out of my feeders. I now have 4 feeders going without varmit cages. The Slinky's are still doing the job. Just wanted to bump this up again in case anyone is still fighting with those corn thieves

SS, in my post above, I address squirrels. They were getting to my cage before. I had pics of them. Since slinkyfying them...no squirrels on the cage.

You don't have to raise the legs, just wind them on. Takes longer, but easier on the back...

I know this thread is about the slinky coon solutions but I just thought I'd update you guys on my situation FWIW

THE SITUATION:I hunt a piece of land in a creek bottom that is FILLED with coons. They were climbing my feeder legs on all my feeders and sticking their hands through the varmint cages to spin the corn off the plates at an alarming rate (Like think 4 times as fast to empty a feeder). I had hundreds of pics of entire families of coons on/around my feeders nightly.

THE SOLUTION: The carpet tack strips have completely solved my issues. I duct taped one 36" strip on all four sides about 24 inches up the leg. Securing it in three spots (bottom, middle, top). The first week they were showing daily as per the usual and had pics of the attempted and failed climbings. Then the camera sightings started tapering off to the point now that I might get 1 coon on camera over a two week period on my cameras. They don't even show up anymore, I think its because the deer are eating the corn in the mornings and evenings before they show up. I have now removed the "varmint" cages since all they were doing was deflecting the corn and all is right in the world (sort of lol)

No problem posting it here. The goal is to get the coons off the feeders.

I won't rain on your parade too much but the carpet tacks are only a temporary fix IMO. Eventually those thieving bastages will figure them out...same as the Sharks Teeth. They essentially become coon stairs. And you sure don't want to forget those things are attached to the feeder legs while walking around filling them. As me how I know.

My experience as well... corn loss to coons went up not down when I added the carpet tack strips...

They absolutely work! I'm putting out two more feeders this week and needed the Slinky's for the feeder legs. Both of these feeders are barrel feeders without varmit cages. The Slinky's have worked for a year with this set up.

Well my slinkies were working well, until the coons figured them out.

Free candy is a hell of a motivator.
Found this yesterday-





Looks like this drum will be going back with a full circumference cage.

I’ve tried everything to no avail. I finally put a 3 strand hot wire on my feeder pen and have not had a Coon on the feeder since. This thing is kicking out 7000 volts on the opposite side of the pen from the solar unit. Best $200 I’ve ever spent. I have actually had to up my feed duration to 10secs because the corn was staying to long in the feeder.

I think the bolt you have poking through the feeder legs restricted the Slinky's effect. It clearly got hung on it and gave the Coon something else to climb on. You can see it's stretched out below the bolt. Mine are attached at the very top of the feeder legs and move freely up and down the leg pipe. I don't think Slinky's are 100% coon proof, but your set up may not be the best for them

No biggie! Just replace the slinky. I think ol Gunnyart still has plenty of them.

Oh! And grab you a Tmate camera mount and one of his new camera shades.

I have both sizes. So long as your cart total is at least $20 you can get free shipping with TBHFS. I know some folks are having success some arenít.

Are pics footage? No? I've wanted video ever since this thread started. I don't have coons come to my feeders anymore so I can't get a video of them. I guess that's a good thing. For $3 there's not a cheaper deterrent that I know of.

So they don't come anymore? I guess the parent teach the babies if you see slinkys don't even bother trying? Maybe they are starting to evolve, and pretty soon coons will forget how to climb. 😂

No they don't come to my feeders anymore. Last pic I had of one was a single pic in January. I feed year round. There are plenty of coons on my lease still. They know where the easy meals are and avoid my feeders.

So they don't even come and eat it off the ground?

I used the cheap ones from Dollar General last year. They definitely work!
