Default Looking for a directional feeder that won't break the bank....

I still don't understand why they're 2-3X as much as a conventional feeder. I need something that holds at least 200lbs. not named Moultrie. Any suggestions?

I have an older style Krivo unit (just the housing with motor and timer) that I would part with for fairly cheap. Tired of stubbing my toe on the thing.

This is the way to go. Add your own feeder capacity and let it fling!


I'm running one myself but am pretty sure it was made pre-Krovman taking it over.

Maybe check the nearest Academy stores.
Last week my son called from Academy in Lake Charle, LA and said they had two Woods to Water Directional 600 lb Feeder on sale for $125. I told him to load them up. I am not sure if they are good, but for that price I figured it was worth a try.

I have 2 of those old Krivoman directional's that have been running for at least 10 years flawlessly!! OP if I were you, I'd "negotiate" with Fargus and get that sucker!!

Fargus, If he don't, I'll take it!! (give the OP a chance at it first!)
