Equip your automatic wildlife feeder with a reliable control unit that's built to perform exactly how you need it to. A digital feeder control unit or analog feeder control unit that offers a range of programmable options allows you to experiment with different daily and distribution feed times to suit your target game, season and location of the feeder on your property. For example, you can set your feeder to distribute more frequently in the winter when food is scarce and less often during other seasons. Many units let you control the distribution radius, so you can regulate flow depending on how close you'd like game to come to the feeder.
You've made sure your deer feeder and feeder accessories can withstand the elements, now choose a digital feeder control unit or analog feeder control unit that can handle the same challenges. Look for tough, weather-resistant housings that'll keep internal wiring safe from moisture and other damage. Also, digital and analog feeder control units with varmint guards around the spinner plates help you get the most out of each hopper full of wildlife feed and attractants. These cages help prevent small animals from pilfering feed. You should also consider feeder control units that offer the conveniences of modern technology, like battery indicators and visual feed-level estimations, to help make maintenance a little easier throughout the year.
