    Had a few of these made at my local sheet metal shop & they work really well. I wanted a silent feeder i could put close to my bow stands, one that would hold a good amout of corn & a way to lock it to the tree to prevent theft. Also designed it with a plexi-glass view window to keep human scent down at feeder & you can check corn level from a distance. Camo ratchet strap to tree & 6' cable lock. I place a small piece of P.T. plywood on the ground for proper feed flow control & if not, you'll have a mudhole in front of feeder over time. I installed 2 hole jiffy clamps ( electrical conduit straps ) on the sides , to hold fresh cut tree limbs for a camo effect.( 4' holds 150 Lbs/Corn & 5' 200 Lbs/Corn )

    Damn, I thought your DIY ground blind was cool, but this is cooler. What else you got up your sleeve?

    Looks awesome!!!! One thing I'd add is something to hold the lid on. I made one out of PVC pipe and had a squirrel to get inside the pipe!! He managed to get the cap off somehow. I felt sorry for the fellow and took a chainsaw and cut him free.
