You’d think that the best deer feeder is one that simply brings the deer in for feeding. Surprisingly, there are various feeders available on the market that seem to offer features and benefits unique to particular uses. So, whether you’re a hunter looking to lure the deer in, or you’re a landowner drawing up a vital deer management plan, chances are you’re wondering which is the best deer feeder for you.
To entry-level hunters and animal enthusiasts alike, feeding deer seems innocent enough. However, state legislators are increasingly passing laws to restrict or prohibit the use of deer feeders.
In fact, as one Merril man found out, fines over $15,000 and even the possibility of jail time could be on the horizon for those not complying with state wildlife laws.
So, when it comes to the best deer feeder options, doing the right research is critical.
Paul Grove has been passionate about hunting for as long as he can remember. He recalls hunting squirrels with his dad’s trusty Winchester Model 63 as early as age 9. As he grew older, his hunting interests, tactics, and gear have refined. He was also fortunate enough to be born in Wisconsin, thus having unhindered access to some of the nation’s best whitetail deer hunting spots. When he’s not chasing deer or other large to massive game on public lands, he is field-testing various fishing gear in a never-ending quest to find that perfect fishing setup. Is his passion for hunting and fishing innate or acquired? Paul believes that it is more about passing down a family tradition.
