Which he could be correct. If you were setting your feeder for sunset to go off, and leave it the same. It will be dark now ( after time change) when it goes off, if you go at the same time according to your watch.

All this changing time crap got too complicated. So I quit using timed feeders. Just road feeders.

I feed year around and hunt pigs at some feeders.
The days get shorter as winter approaches so I start adjusting the times (I prefer sling times at sunrise & 1.5 hrs before sunset) I make a final adjustment about a week before rifle season as the days really start to get shorter (about 2 minutes a day until the winter solstice dec 21st) and I set the clock back as well. If you set your times according to those dusk dawn times for Dec 21st then your good for the season.


But, What difference does it make what others do.

Yup…. And we’re not sitting at the feeder at 2am Sunday morning of DST to make the switch. When it happens it happens.

These guys are too so we can switch theirs.

Ok. You got me on this one. Obviously deer DO wear watches. But can they really tell time or is it just bling for the ladies?

What really wreaks havoc on the night before is auto changing phones for time but not the alarm.

I know it isn't necessary but I'll change ours today just because I can.

Deer change their feeding times constantly, so I refuse to play their game, and they will have to feed when my feeder goes off or do without!

That’s the way to do it. Leave clock time on “summer time”, and when time “falls back”, BOOM, it goes off at 7am and 4pm, WITHOUT TOUCHING A DANGED THING.

Because I like it to match my watch when I check it.



The better question is, why does someone start a feeder/time change thread EVERY ****ING….YEAR?

I can't believe y'all hunt under a feeder. At least give the deer a chance.

You're a 10 point for crying out loud! You should know better!

I have mine set at 0700 and 1600 to start out the season, but gradually will move the time by 15 minutes or so so that it's not going off when it's pitch dark out.

Yes, I'm OCD like that!

I do the same thing. 0700 and 17:30 at the beginning of bow season and I only adjust my morning times from that point forward. I adjust it forward to make sure it goes off at gray light when I'm there the next time. I never adjust for the time change and at the end of the season the feeders go back to 0700 for the next year.
