Default PSA about daylight savings and feeders.

Be sure to adjust your time on your feeder an hour today or your feeder will go off on the dark.

Crazy how the clocks on feeders change automatically with the time change but the feed times don't.

I think the more important PSA would be to set an additional alarm or turn your phone to airplane mode so it does not automatically adjust.

Mine is set for standard time and stays that way year around. Goes off the same time for the deer everyday. I don’t believe they follow the time change. Lol

Hope they show up at 6:15 and don’t stick to 7:15 tomorrow morn
I will have to wait an extra hr on them
I surely hope they don’t get the time change wrong
Heck they might show up at 5:15 or 8:15

Yes turn off auto update time settings on your phone if you use it for your alarm.

I bought “the timer” today and when I took it out of the box the time was already set. I should have waited until tomorrow so I didn’t get one that is already an hour ahead.

I have an old photocell timer on my feeder. I dumped it yesterday afternoon and moved it out of the shadows into an opening so the light will hit it sooner. Maybe not an hour, but it should be closer.

When I was trying to sleep last night I started wondering if that is going to make it further off rather than closer to the right feeding time.

Confused.... And full of b. s.

I was worried about messing up so I slept in the stand and let the feeder wake me up. Peed out the door but had vanilla whiskey with my dinner so should be good

This really isn't that hard guys. When you change your home clocks back 1 hour from say 5pm to 4pm just make a note to change back your throw times 1 hour. So instead of a 7am throw make it 6am

Your smart phone will get you up at the right time.
