You don't necessarily need to replace a deer feeder just to add new features or capabilities. Moultrie offers deer feeder accessories that make it easy and affordable to give your existing Moultrie a new lease on life.
Varmint Proofing If it weren't for their stealing ways, you'd have to give raccoons, and other varmints, due credit for their persistent. That doesn't mean you have to accept their feed thieving behavior. A Moultrie Varmint Guard features all-metal construction that's tough enough to stand up to any varmint. It easily mounts to the bottom of feeder drums or hoppers.
Upgrade Your Timer Moultrie's Universal Digital Timer is an easy upgrade that can give your feeder added feed time capability. Compatible with 6-volt and 12-volt feeders, this timer upgrade lets you set up to six daily feed times with durations of between 1 and 20 seconds.
Go Solar Moultrie's family of Quick-Lock feeder kits all have an external power port to accept our 6-Volt Deluxe Solar Panel and a rechargeable 6-Volt Safety Battery. For the sake of simplicity, you can opt for a Moultrie Power Panel®, which combines a solar panel with a built-in rechargeable 6-volt battery.
Light Up The Hogs If you've got hogs on your property and on your mind, attach a Moultrie Feeder Hog Light to your Quick-Lock or Pro Magnum series feeder kit. Activated by motion, photocell or manually, the Feeder Hog Light uses high-powered green LEDs to illuminate a 30-foot diameter around the feeder.
Remote Feed Capability No bigger than your typical car fob, the Moultrie Feeder Activator lets you run your feeder from up to 300 feet away. The Feeder Activator is an ideal companion to the Feeder Hog Light.
Add A Feeder The All-In-One Timer Kit isn't a feeder accessory, but its low price makes it an excellent option for adding more feeders to your land. Featuring a built-in timer and metal, wind-resistant spinner plate, this compact feeder kit lets you turn any bucket into a feeder. Runs on four AA batteries and has and external power port.
Pre-Season Deer Feeder Tips with Moultrie
Dan Moultrie is the man when it comes to Game Feeders and after 35 years Moultrie still makes the best feeders around. The product manager for Moultrie Feeders, Darrin Durham, has learned a thing or two about deer feeders during his 15+ years of using game feeders. Since joining the Moultrie team Darrin has polished his skills as a game feeder expert. Thanks to his own experiences and a few expert tips from Dan Moultrie, Darrin also has extensive knowledge when it comes to Deer Feeders. He has shared some tips to help you maintain and prepare your Moultrie feeder to perform flawlessly this season.
1. Pre season check – Before filling your feeder for the summer months it is a good idea check all wing nuts and bolts to assure hopper is water tight. Do a system check to assure your feeder is functioning properly. Oil the spin motor with small drops of scent free oil (do not use heavy doses of oil because it can cause dust and debris to accumulate). Make sure batteries get a full charge (regardless of solar chargers or feeder power panel). Be sure to check for any warranty concerns if you did not do so at the end of last season (for Customer Service please call 1-800-653-3334, Monday-Friday 8AM - 5PM CST).
2. Disinfect your hopper – That’s right, clean and disinfect the inside of your hopper. This step is often overlooked but is important to maintain the quality of your feeding practices year after year. Before beginning the cleaning process remember to remove the feeder kit and do not get the electronics wet! Next, completely empty any remaining contents from the hopper and use light bleach and water to disinfect the inside of your feeder. Be sure to rinse thoroughly to eliminate bacteria, bugs, and residue. Let your feeder air dry, or wipe it down with a scent free towel before re-filling your feeder. Not only will doing this reduce the chance of disease transmission, it will also make your corn or feed last longer; ultimately, keeping your deer herd healthy.
3. Do you need a Varmint Guard? Always keep some type of feed in your feeder to reduce the risk of varmints chewing and destroying the parts of your feeder. If the built in varmint guard is just not cutting it, maybe this is the year to invest in a Varmint Guard.
4. Prime Location? If you have wanted to move your feeder to a new location, do it now to allow time for the deer to acclimate. Moving feeders is best done Mid to Late Summer. It is also a good idea to maintain your feed areas by keeping undergrowth down and food in the area.
5. How can you improve on last year's pictures? Be more photogenic this season by moving your feeder to accommodate good game camera placement and lighting. Moving your feeder just a few yards to the left or right could be the difference needed to produce better game camera photos this season.
These 5 tips will help ensure the longevity of your game management efforts for seasons to come.
