Pretty cool you have a bear on your property. Now you need bear proof feeders. They are becoming more common in East TX

Maybe just a taller feeder with a sturdy cage.
I would hunt him like he owed me money!

A bear with and extra long nose and big choppers !

My friend had one like that tear a feeder completely off the barrel.....twice ! He finally got in his blind about four am and when he could barely see a hog shape touched off his 7mm mag. Problem solved.

The base of this feeder box is 8.5 feet, I measure them when I hang them. They can go higher when the oak tree grows taller.

How big is this south Florida bear ? Iím shocked Texas isnít inundated with bears like we are.

Not sure where you are but had one break two of my twist-lok feeder cans this year. Never had one broken in the 5 or so years I ran em. Then this guy comes along and breaks the same feeder twice.

I have that same feeder and it is way too low with hogs and especially raccoons.

First thing I did was get some square tubing and cut to them to 8' so the feeder was a lot higher. I have also had big hogs just lean hard into the cheap round legs that come with other feeders and they bend until the feeder falls. Just some info on what I learned/did.

But definitely need to take that sucker out.
