We have had a traditional spin feeder for years. Keeping the battery charged was a pain and we were wasting feed on squirrels, birds and raccoons. The squirrels got so greedy they chewed through the bottom of the feeder!
We had purchased a metal replacement funnel but it wouldn't solve the main problems of battery charging and wasted feed. However, on a trip to North Carolina's Dixie Deer Classic and we found the ultimate solution!
When I first saw the Spyder Gravity Feeder I was immediately intrigued by the concept. Although skeptical at first, I spoke to the owners and they showed me video after video of deer using the system. After I noticed that it was Made in the USA I had to have one!
It was incredibly easy to install the system on our existing feeder and we put some corn and Big Tine in the feeder and waited for the deer to figure it out.
It took some time but they figured it out finally and we have never had more than a fork buck anywhere near our feeder when it spun. Unlike other gravity feeders the Spyder Gravity Feeder requires the deer to push on the trough, meaning that squirrels can't activate it and no more waste feeding pests!
Bonus! In order to have the Spyder Gravity Feeder at optimal deer height we had to remove some sections of the feeder legs. This made the feeder low enough to load from the ground! No more corn bags and ladders!
Does and bucks love it, this buck come back frequently for more Big Tine! Enjoy the following sequence of him trying to get more out. In a couple years he will be a big buck with a habit for Big Tine and he will know where to find it! Keep in mind that this buck is using the feeder even though the neighbors have a giant pile of corn less than 100 yards away just over the property line. Big Tine's mix of minerals, corn, sunflower seeds and milo coated in mouth cherry blast scent will not only keep your deer happier and healthier, it will keep them coming back! Pair Big Tine with Spyder Gravity Feeders and you have a killer combo!

I am so thankful for a maintenance free, hassle free, waste free system!
