The feeder


Recommended Posts

Just bought a big bag of nuts 

Plus we need to move the feeder 

As the owners are building some thing in the woods next to the feeder 

So we are moving it tomorrow 

And we have found the perfect tree and cover for us,,,, a tree that over hangs so like a natural hide

Put a camo net at the front of it and we can't be seen 

Over the moon lol

Big bag of nuts cost £17 and a few pence

That's the b&m peanuts I find them a bit broken up and get them if I can't get my normal ones  ,home bargains is the place I get mine from although the squirrels don't mind them b&m ones  but imo home bargains are better quality and I mix mine with cheaper feed it makes them last longer also I put a few capfulls of attractant in mine  👍,plus home bargains do packs of monkey nuts which are cheaper than others a few of them on the  box will draw them in too.Thats the mix I use ,👍

We were looking at big sacks of the mix your using, but we wernt sure if it was any good for the sqizzlers, but If so its only £10 a massive sack of it from the allotment huts.

I have used the B&M sacks for the last three years and they work a treat.  We also mixed in sunflower seeds, wheat and maize but in truth we found everything but the nuts scattered around on the ground however that usually get eaten by the pheasants and deer so not  total loss.

Must be different areas then Phil👍 ,we often see maize on the floor but it's all nibbled on the end and apart from that everything is taking  . The feeders we have are in between pheasant feeders and I've seen them run past them to get to the boxes .These are topped up regular even now we're ferreting so we can drop back on whenever we like the keeper tells me when they need topping up🙂

Thanks stevie for the tips mate 

Was wondering what to mix with them to make it last longer 

Moved the feeder tonight 

And it was chewed to hell as it had run out of nuts 

So topped it up to the top this time 

So should be OK for two or three days 

Hopefully they will not build any thing next to it 

Going to give it a day or two then hit it again,

I remember a big bloke on this forum calling my shooting sticks - said they were my zimmer frame lads,- twat.

                  I also remember that big bloke calling my style of shooting ( static, ambush) as being sat on my fat arse technique, - twat.

                  Yeah and the same twa, bloke has now been and paid me for umpteen shooting lessons this last 6 months, begged me to keep it secret too, seems to be paying off  for you Jim, sitting on yer fat arse with yer mop sticks. :feck: :rofl:

                  Great write up and shooting mate. :good:

                  Love the look of your pup Sean, a wire haired pointer ?

Hi Phil,lads,

             We have been through a real bad time with my eldest son and to be honest I`ve hardly picked a rifle up other than practice for nigh on 2 years.

             He's diagnosed with adhd, bad mental health etc, he was having suicidal thoughts also.

             He's slowly mending ( mental health) now, adhd is permanent and for life but yeah, been through a hell of a bad time to be honest.
