Default Wise Eye Deer Feeders?

A friend of mine won one and he has no use for it in Missouri. I have never heard of them. Does anyone have any experience with them?

Never heard of them. Looks like it has a lot of moving parts and a lot could go wrong with them to me.

There has been a thread or two about them on here. I've seen the YouTube video also

Sounds like a good idea in theory, but don't know about the actual application over time. Coons may learn to wear a deer mask to get feed bin open.

why would you put bread in your pocket ??? They look nice but I can see them broken in a short time . WAY too many moving parts for a feeder if you ask me

Exactly.

But in all seriousness if I won one of them I think it would be amazing and Im sure it does everything the company stated that it will. The biggest problem with them is the ridiculous price tag and since this feeder was won for free that goes out the window. So I would say tell your buddy to put it out document it and let us follow the results on a live thread.

I'd love to try one. I've heard that they work good and the customer support if excellent. I think you can shut down the night feeding which would be nifty IMHO.
