"Keeping the elements and the Varmints out starts with above average equipment"
All 6 of these are wreaking havoc on your old wwoden trough deer feeder. Studies have shown that all predators are territorial. That means they mark their home range with the scent of urine and feces, and, yes, they do it in your trough deer feeder as well. An average raccoon can also consume as much as 5 pounds of food a night while storing fat for winter. With year round feeding that comes to about 1,825 lbs. of feed a year per Raccoon.
You do the math
- 5 raccoons = 9,125 lbs. a year
- 10 raccoons = 18,250 lbs. a year
- 20 raccoons = 36,500 lbs. a year
Financially the numbers are staggering. Add in the factor that when these critters claim homestead in your trough feeder, whitetails WILL move on to other sources.
