I recently purchased myself a Moultrie game camera and have been getting some wild dogs on film. I have also just obtained permission to hunt a block for red deer. I will be the only hunter on this block so I want to set my camera up over a feeder. Has anybody got any "build it yourself" ideas for my feeder or is a bucket with holes in it as good as it gets? The feeder will be placed in thick scrub so I don't wan't anything too bulky.
I have even considered a salt lick block or salt paste, any thoughts?

Having not seen this feeder before, do you have a photo of the finished product as mounted?
Best,

PS: A fast and dirty "deer feeder" can be made from a large plastic jar of peanut butter. Unscrew the lid, do not remove the seal over the peanut butter, nail the lid (open end out) to a tree with two vertical aligned roofing nails, about 4 feet off the ground. Screw the jar back onto the lid. With a pocket knife cut off the bottom of the jar thus making a cylinder full of peanut butter. The refill is just screwing a new jar in place. That is it.

Don't have pic. of the feeder but need to add that the holes are in the bottom of the cap to drain water and use 1/2in dowel in center bottom to push the pipe back. Will try to get pic.

Here is one of the pictures, look in the photo album. Couldn't get to the message. PS Use thin wall pipe, works best.
