    First off, I did not design this..I found it on the interwebs somewhere and liked the idea, so here it is.

    I made it out of 4" pipe,caps,and wye.

    first, locate the nearest Lowes and buy yourself a section of 4" pipe. The Lowes by me, didnt have anything shorter then a 10' piece, so here it is on the way home [​IMG]

    Second, lay everything out and find out what your dealing with. You should have two(2) black 4" caps, one(1)4" wye, and a piece of 4" pipe cut to what ever length you desire. After I cut the flared end off, I had 9'8" to deal with. I made one 5', and the other one is about 2" shorter.

    [​IMG]

    After cutting the pipe in half(or close to it), set aside one piece for another use. File down the rough edges of the pipe so everything will look nice.

    Take the wye, and slide it onto one end of the 4" pipe you just cut like so[​IMG]

    Pre-drill 4-5 small holes, and I used about 4-5 screws to hold it togehter. 6x3/4 is what I used to hold the wye onto the pipe.

    Once that is completed, take the 4" cap and slide it onto the bottom of the wye. I pre-drilled again, and used about 5 screws to hold the cap to the bottom of the wye. Prefer to use short screws, so if a deer sticks its nose/tounge into the bottom it wont get cut up. 10x3/4 is what I used to hold the bottom cap onto the bottom of the wye. I also drilled a bunch of small holes in the cap on the bottom of the wye, to let any moisture that may get in, out.

    Heres the finished product, just over 5' tall, ready to hold feed for the deer.[​IMG]

    sorry for the crooked pic, but I couldnt back up far enough away to get a good pic.

    The finished product will be just ratchet strapped to the tree about a foot up, to keep it mobile.

    With everything but the screws, it ran me just under $30 to make this feeder. And I have the tube for another one, so another $20 for two caps, and another wye, and I can have another feeder.

    Hope you enjoyed my build. Lol

    Nice job. Once the deer start to shed their horns put a chain link fence in a semi-circle against the feeder.If the horns are loose enough they will break off when the buck goes down to get a bite. I've got a few sheds by doing this!
