Default Deer Feeder

I decided to start my own thread here. I built a quick little stand and fill type feeder out of some scrap stuff we had laying around. I had a little lease close to my house and I was going to make it my second feeder on the place. Well as I was hurrying to get it finished before gun season started we got word that the lease shrank and I got kicked off.

So I talked to a couple of students and asked if they wanted to build a better looking deer feeder and see if we could sell it.

I have no idea how much corn either of them will hold when completed. The new one is little bit bigger than the first. The new one should be close to what a 55 gallon drum holds.

Here are some pictures for you entertainment!

Would love some ideas and constructive criticism as well!

***I have no idea why the pictures are sideways or how to correct them***

We are still making the one that we are tracking the cost. The one that I built is all from scraps that we had laying around the shop--kind of a hodge podge so to speak. When we get more progress I will post up more pictures.

Even sideways it looks like it should work out great.

Are you a AG teacher? Iím asking because you mentioned students.

I am a welding teacher in high school. I was an Ag teacher prior to taking this job. Very similar roles--not as many projects for beginners and no wood working tools! Oh yeah--No afterschool responsibilities!

Here is a little update--we haven't made too much progress--Between Thanksgiving break and Christmas break the kids have pretty much shut down and almost require me standing there telling them every move to make--with as many projects as we have right now, that doesn't work all that great!

Looks good. I do have some advice though. Get you a pipe bender for the shop. I've cut and welded pipe like you did for skids and they really tear up the ground. The smooth transition of bent pipe is much less aggressive on the dirt. About 100.00 at HFT

Well unfortunately COVID happened last year and it is still sitting just like it was in the pictures. The students that were working on it all graduated and we have other things going on this year.

CVA34--Yes the thought was to sale it and make money to put back into our program. If I was able to tell ya'll what my budget was you would laugh. So we like doing projects to make money for our materials to build more projects and buy tools like Kossetx suggested.

If anyone is interested in buying it like it is let me know. I haven't put any thought into the price.

It is set up similar to the ones at bucees, meaning it has a place to put the battery and timer inside a compartment. You would have to mount the motor to the bottom. It would need a varmit cage on it as well.

Ya'll can message me on here or email me william.dobbins@humbleisd.net
I am at Atascocita High School.
