Deer Feeder Help

Just bought a new tripod deer feeder with 4 settings to feed. What times are recommended to set the feeding times? And should I use all 4 times to feed? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

Right before signup and right before sundown think about what time your gonna possibly hunt it and get em used to coming to feeder for that time

I agree with 40lbDuk in general. If you usually hunt mornings and evenings set the feeder to run at first light and an hour or two before dusk. If you typically hunt all day, add a run around mid day.

I set mine for in the morning only so the deer have to visit the feeder during daylight to have any feed. The deer will soon learn that in order to eat corn they can't wait until darkness because the squirrels and birds will eat it all before dark. Good luck.

Might alter my deer feeder schedule a tad as I think that makes perfect sense to have feeder operating when ya most likely gonna be in ya stand and my damn deer feeder has way too many feed times.Gonna head to my game cam to swap out SD card and set Browning Strike Force game cam to video and hope I get some great video footage!!
