Awesome buck. How nice to have a good one hop in the feeder pens and be so easily targeted.

The pen is 3 16ft sections that are all around 25 inches tall. It keeps 90% or more of the pigs out. once in a blue moon a pig will get in but it is rare. I hand corn only. I dump 50lbs out every sunday. Towards October I may go up to 75 to 100lbs depending on if they eat it in less than a week. I judge how much I need by watching camera pics to see when I cant see any corn on ground.

Exact same on this pen in size and panels. I usually put around 200#ís in it last year. About to fill it for first time this year.

I do the same height as well, though much larger in size.

I also get a hog to jump in every once in a while, very rare though. Like less than one per year.

You can tell a more mature deer quickly, as they can just almost step over the fence without jumping.

All you need is 9 panels to build a pen? What would be best for a pipeline?

one and a half cattle panels is all you need. Take a whole panel and cut it in half long ways (16ft side to make them 25 inches tall) I use three 16ft sections. Smaller pen the better for hand corn IMO

Definitely doable. I always thought you had to have a lot of panels for a feed pen. Thanks.

I have more of an issue with the little shoats squeezing thru the regular sized cattle panel holes than anything. That is the only real issue I have experience. I do have a cut off flush t-post every 8’ as well.

Them mf’ers got into one of my pens, presumably in a little section I cut lower so I could shoot into it. I’m just gonna zip tie the piece I’d cut out back on for a while, see if that discourages them.

Do you have good luck having deer come and stay at your feeder on the pipeline? Theyíre always so skittish around ours and usually just does.

Not really, its mainly for hogs. Its 100 yards away so if I want to shoot a hog with my bow I'll just use a hand corn trail to bring them over when I want them there.

I plant rye grass or oats some years. Most years about 80% of the powerline is underwater so its hit or miss but regardless the deer and hogs cross it a lot so it's my favorite spot to hunt.

Put up a micro pen yesterday in Newton about 150 yards from my feeders. Bucks definitely shifting around, not hitting feeders like normal and breaking off. Iím sure the full moon is helping. Iím seeing ToNS of Post Oaks, Willow and Water Oaks loaded with acorns

My deer have just about quit my pens too. Most are now hard horned. They still come around once or twice a week. If I dont start getting daylight activity I will probably spend opening day at my pig killing stand so I dont blow out my primary spots. MRI is what I will go by. Cell cams are def a game changer on how I hunt

Really not a bad problem to have. Bucks fall and winter range is rarely their spring and summer range. I actually hate growing bucks Ö. Cause when the velvet comes off my neighbors 2 miles away that turn there feeder on for the first time on opening weekend kill all of them. Lol

You have doe!!!! They are better than acorns!!!!

Forget the trail and go find the does bedding area and hunt that mid to late October. They will be in same place unless blown out

This. The bucks in Polk county will start transitioning in the next 2-3 weeks to their winter grounds and you’ll get an opportunity to see how well your neighbors have been feeding them. You have plenty of bait according to the picture. Patience is a virtue in ET. Good luck to ya.

Good deal! Their bedding area is about 500 yards behind the feeder so I do know that. Iíll setup another hang on between the feeder and them and hope to catch one slip up.

I would advise not to get to close to their bedding areas. These deer are crafty and it doesnít take much activity at all to shut their daytime activity down completely.

A limb came down but first pic of a buck all summer, and I have quite a few more of him chewing on corn today. Guess all I need to do is rant on TBH for bucks to show up lol. Hoping his dad comes along sooner or later.

FINALLY got my EZ Feeder and pen up (pens 10 panels so HOPEFULLY they feel comfortable in it). Pigs had destroyed the area under the feeder that was there before and Iím sure this fella is none too pleased about being shut out.

October 1st is getting close. I have two shooter bucks, however they are only coming in at night right now. I sure hope this weather change gets them to change their patterns. If not I plan to spend opening morning on my hog stand. Last thing I want to do is bust one of my shooters out knowing he wont show up in daylight hours. I wish I could figure out his travel route so I could cut him off as I know he is somewhere during daylight I just dont think I could get in without buggering him up.

The 2020 season had me in the same situation as you. My shooter returned in late September from the year before and he was within the age structure that we wanted. Problem was he was a night walker. For 2 months I would get several pictures a week but never in shooting light. On Thanksgiving morning I killed him at 8:00 am. He was the only deer I had seen all morning. Hang in there buddy. You never know what will happen if minimum pressure is put on them.

There was a contest local to us we used to enter. Won some shirt and jackets and my son was stacking 7s for a few years and did well. Good group of guys really but one bad apple kinda ruined it for me.

We needed another to participate in

Lol we used to run one out of Big Eís gas station before his crawfish business took off. We had an MlD guy kill the second weekend of October, he entered our contest a week after killing the deer. Little did he know we had a picture of the deer dead the week he killed it. 170Ē typical, guy on a very prominent Trinity co lease, we called him out in it while scoring it. Ask him why he would cheat everyone out of a couple hundred bucks. The stuttering commenced
