Precisely why we bend out tpost along the feeder legs. That and if you call filling the feeder you can impale yourself on the post.

Hate to see that.

This. Not just for the deers safety but feeder-filler’s safety as well! Sorry to see that

I have always said that deer have a hard life. I think it becomes more apparent as you get older. Cars, fences, coyotes, mountain lions, disease, weather, hunters, hogs(fawns), and now deer feeders are deer killers. It`s a hard life.

thats a sad picture to see, whats weird is that his head and nose is not even touching the ground. Its like he just petrified in mid struggle.

When I see stuff like this, it makes me wonder how many times something random like this happens out in the brush or just off the road where we dont see it.

Guess that's one that shouldn't have been given another year. (Someone had to say it) Hate that for you guys and the deer. As mentioned above, we usually drive t posts in with the angle of the legs. If you don't want to do that, I'd suggest moving the t posts farther to the outside of the legs. It's unfortunate, but at least it was just a deer and not someone falling while trying to fill the feeder.

Ive tried to grow better or bigger deer for “awhile” it seems to me there is always a little heartache involved, I felt almost zero emotion when I drove up on the scene, but I was sipping baby beers fast and stole one or two from Shanes ice-chest. That kinda bad luck can happen to anything alive

In reality that deer didn't suffer very long. The pinch point will cut off blood supply to the kidneys creating kidney failure and thus a bit of a quicker death than starvation. I learned that from an old trapper who used snares for coyotes. They rarely lived through the night, so there's that.
