Default Runaway feeder!

This barrel has a really old Gamewinner feeder on it that has been acting up lately. We decided to wait until itís empty to replace it. That day came a little earlier than anticipated. I think it was about 1/3-1/2 full

I’m not cheap, just thrifty. I’m showing up with a shovel and a screen and it’s going back in.

I had a new Triple C feeder that did this back in 2002 when I filled it the first time. They said it needed a new board and they gave me one and I replace it. Iíve been running that feeder for 19 years and never had another problem.

x10 on Triple C. What little problems I've had in the last 12 or so years, they fixed or replaced with new, for no charge. It'll put your eye out !!!

That sucks, I know some of you have had issues with The Timers but I’ve had a over a dozen feeders running them for almost a decade and I’ve never had an issue. I guess I’m lucky,

I don't know how much corn a pig this size can eat at one sitting but we got a pic of this one in the pile every 3 minutes for almost an hour!
