Keep wildlife fed and healthy during hunting season and through the colder months when food is scarce with help from a solid deer feeder. Digital deer feeder kits and control units with variable speed settings and timers offer easy programming, and some even let you adjust the dispensing radius, so deer can locate your feed from a set distance away from the hopper. In order to prevent your feed from getting pilfered by birds, rodents and other unwanted animals, grab deer feeder parts with varmint guards, so you can be sure only bucks, does and fawns are enjoying the feast you've laid out.
If you've placed your hopper full of feed far out in the wild, you can keep it operational with a deer feeder battery powered with a solar panel charger. While some may require an adapter, many deer feeder kits come equipped with a solar power connection for easy installation. If you're worried about overcharging, look for solar chargers with trickle-charge designs to help maintain battery life. Tough solar panels with metal housings guard against damage due to potential hazards in the outdoors, and those with internal wiring help prevent animals from tampering with the circuitry. If you're thinking of setting up a feeder, be sure you have the proper deer feeder parts to keep it going through multiple seasons.
