Note to self…

Note to self…. check to ensure the feeder works before you put 160# of deer corn into it.


Loaded 160# of corn into a feeder that appeared to be working. Finally remembered how to do a test run with them and nothing happened. Could be the electronics were dead enough to not trigger the motor (unlikely, given all other things about the electronics did appear to be working fine). I think the motor is fried. And trying to replace the motor will be a lot of fun with 160# of corn in the hopper.

Oh well. It’s my fault for forgetting to ensure it was working.

On the plus side, lots of hog tracks in the soft ground. Hopefully I can get back out there and repair the feeder in the next week or so, and maybe there’ll still be some activity on the camera. I want to do some hog hunting. 🙂
