WAITING TO INHALE?

If this doe is waiting for the feeder to throw some corn, she's in for a long wait, as it is a gravity feeder - and empty.

If this doe is waiting for the feeder to throw some corn, she’s in for a long wait, as it is a gravity feeder – and empty.

In the past, I filled this feeder with oats, coons didn’t much like them, neither did hogs, but the deer ate them just fine. This year, those varmints decided get more fiber in their diets, and ate ALL the oats as fast as I could fill the feeder – which led me to stop filling it. Since this doe is obviously interested, I think I’ll try it as a protein/mineral feeder. Mostly I have found that hogs and coons don’t eat the protein, but the deer didn’t like it much, either.

Oh, well.
