Frequently Asked Questions

Q - How long does it take for the deer to accept a new feeder in a new location?

SO - Through years of research, trial and error. We have documented that when putting a feeder at a new location for the first time it takes on average 2 weeks to a month for deer to lose the fear of the new intruder in their living room. The paint that we use takes 21 days to fully cure, so the smell will be prevalent on a brand-new feeder. But once they stick their nose in the feeder for the first time, they become regular patrons at the local buffet.

Q - If I replace my old feeder at an already established site, should I leave the old feeder in place with the new feeder at that location until the deer get accustomed to the new feeder?

SO - We recommend removing the old feeder the day you replace one with the other.

We have tried both ways to see what would be best over the years and without a doubt the quicker you get your new feeder in the area the quicker they will accept the new addition.

Q - How many feeders do I need. Is it by land size, or deer herd density

SO -The best way is to go by herd size. We recommend 1 feeding station for every 25 head of deer, or if density is low, at least one feeder for every 400 acres. Research has shown the more feeding stations you can make available, the more deer will utilize supple  mental feed.

Q - We have been on a feeding program for quite a while, and suddenly the deer just quit coming to our feeders.

SO - This is most likely due a change in the environment, or an improvement in native range conditions. When large mast crops such as acorns, wild berries, fruit or mesquite beans become available deer will also back off on feed.

Hunting pressure or the presence of a native predator such as bobcat, mountain lions or bears can also cause deer to decrease feeder visitation frequency.
