Default Do You Change Feeder Times???

My feeders are currently set for 0700 in the morning and 1700 (5:00)pm. Do you change the times on your feeders each time the time changes or do you leave them the same all year? Do you make any adjustments to your feeders? Please advise.

Thanks,
Lance

Only time I change them is to adjust for daylight savings.

I'll check sunrise and sunset times, my first throw is 15 mins before sunrise, and then 1 hour before sunset.

I'll add a 9am and a 8pm throw on Fridays, Saturday's, and Sundays in hopes of picking off a few hogs while I'm out there

I believe the spin cast feeders timers adjust automatically.

I change mine to adjust for the time change. I also don't throw as much corn as I do during the season.

Granted I'm 25 min from the lease so it's not a hassle to make a trip out there.

Good point. I'm 4.5 hours away. I only make it out there maybe once a month.

I adjust for dlst of course but I also adjust for best hunting times. For example right now I want pigs to come in my feeders are set for as early as shooting light allows and 30 minutes before dark.

I change mine every trip due to the nights and days getting longer or shorter. I drive too far to be hardheaded about a 30 sec ordeal. My neighbors and lease members all throw corn......and if I left it the same all year like some folks I could be as long as 1 hour before or after morning light depending on the longer/shorter day swing (absolutely nothing to do with DSL). If it was to spin an hour after light, the deer that would come to my feeder would already be at somebody else's feeder getting full or shot. And if it was that long before light , they would be full, gone, or even worse still there when I walked in.

With the sunrise/ sunset app on my phone at my fingertips, it is lazy not to change it in my opinion. I want every advantage I can get with other folks doing the same. I always set them when I leave to be perfect by my next planned trip.

I have been doing the following for 10 years on our place.

AM is set 15 minutes after civil twilight or the crack of dawn. Civil twilight/crack of dawn is around 30 minutes before the actual Sunrise listing, so I always take Sunrise and subtract 15 minutes to get my AM set time for the 4 feeders we manage. That usually gives me decent light when it goes off.

PM is always 1.5 hours before the Sunset listing. That gives me two hours of good light with the spinner having spun. I get in 1-1.5 hours before, throw handcorn and have a good 3 hours of hunting.

In short....very simple.
AM is 15 minutes before sunrise listing
PM is 1.5 hours before sunset listing.


I also adjust for DSL because it is simply easier to keep up with when I do change my feeder times through the year. Again...another quick adjustment for convenience.

Not to mention, by adjusting the timer, you can also check to make sure everything is in working order while the door is open. Nothing worse than not checking the feeder and it doesn't go off.

No. I used to change it every 2 weeks or once a month but I got tired of it. Now I just change the clock to adjust for DST.

So, mine are set to go off at 7:15 and 5 pm.

I guess it is just better to adjust with DS & sun up/down. And also hit the test button every time I make an adjustment. Thanks.

We change ours to feed while it's dark in the morning and evenings in the offseason to cut down on the dove and quail consumption. We tweak throughout the season.

I never adjust for DLS but I do adjust for length of day. The closer we get to hunting season, the more diligent I am.

I do not change for daylight savings time, but do adjust for longer/shorter days. I try to keep them AT daylight or a little before (I like for the animals to start eating with a little darkness so they can relax before it starts getting lighter) and 1.5 hours before last shooting light.

I change the times 4-5 times a year, probably 3 time changes just from September-January. If I had just one feeder then I'd change it nearly every trip I'm sure but it takes 1.5+ hrs just to drive to all 12 feeders. No neighbors close by throwing feed either otherwise I'd take that into consideration as well.

I change the clocks when the time changes, both spring and fall. I also change my feed times most every time I fill feeders. I keep the morning feed time about 20 minutes before actual sunrise, and the evening feed about an hour before actual sunset.

This is what we do. Don't mess with changing from DST and probably only adjust the times maybe 3 times or so for sun up/down as the days do get shorter through the fall. With that said, we only sling corn for about 6 months.

I do as most others, 15 minutes before sunrise, 1 hour before sunset, adjust for daylight savings time, but I also add a feed for the turkeys at noon this time of the year until after turkey season is over.

I might adjust them a little due to changes in day length, but daylight savings time is not something you have to worry about unless the clock on your feeder adjusts automatically. When you set them to throw based on sunrise and sunset times, leave your clock alone on the feeder- sunrise and sunset is God made- clock time is man made. Right now I only throw once a day- set to throw in the mornings to keep deer coming during the day. If I want to feed pigs I will throw it on the ground when I want to go hunt them.

Folks change the DST times so that our timers are on the same times as our phones or watches to make changing multiple timers less confusing. We aren't doing it because we think the deer or mother nature change their clocks too. The sunrise sunset tables on my app change so it makes it easier without having to say "oh yeah we are an hour back right now...I need to make sure and account for that" ...or "are we are good right now on the time or are we an hour forward back now." With your times synced up with your phone, it makes for an easy mistake free switch by looking at your sunrise sunset app for the right times. Being 5 hours away from my lease, making sure they are right is kind of a big deal.

I change mine to adjust for the changes in sunrise and sunset. During the hunting season, I'll adjust the feed times before leaving each weekend to match what time I want it to go off whenever I expect to be back for the next hunt. During the offseason I might adjust the time 3 or 4 times total. I try to have mine go off 15 minutes before legal sunrise and 1:45 before last shooting light (30 minutes after legal sunset). During the summer I usually adjust the night feed time to 30 minutes before last light because with the heat the deer don't seem to move much until after dark anyways.

I feed less corn April through mid-June because they don't hit it much with all the native browse greened out.

I change the clock time for DST, but I don't rush out there to do it right away. I'll just change it the next time I'm at the feeder to make it match what my phone says so I don't get confused.
