    I also use those Wally World feeders...work great. Have a photo cell timer. After 24 hrs feed 1/2 after sunup and 1/2 before sundown. A six volt batt lasts a long time. Amount it spreads is adjustable. At first I had one on a tripod but the blamed coons got up and pried the lid off to get at the corn. Now I hang em from a limb with a small block and tackle. Makes it easy to lower and check/refill.

    Dont do what I did at the beginning of Turkey season. Took down the feeder 11 days prior. Sat it in the shop. Couple of days later I went in and there was corn EVERYWHERE.....I forgot to unhook the battery so it kept dispensing twice a day.......what a dumb S**T.

    Coons like the whole corn also...Coons like anything...lol. We throw our table scraps out and put a cam on the pile to see what hauls it off. Possums, coons, crows....And a Red Fox that loves pancakes. When ever there are some out there he always shows up. Will grab one in the mouth and take off with it, and then come back for another. Never stays and eats it there.

    Thanksgiving when I was a kid

    I can remember way back when, every Thanksgiving my Mom's bro's and sis's would show up at noon and stay until it was time to clean up and then they would disappear. Like that fox, eat and run, go back for seconds and then disappear until next time.

    Mom fooled em...we started eating at 11 AM or we would go out.:D

    You know the old saying: Company and Fish start to stink after about 3 days. Sometime sooner than that........:eek:

    We get corral snakes in my area. Never seen a rattler all the way down here, but I am told they are around.

    It's really about situation awareness. If you're out in brush country (which I traverse in sandals) make sure to be listen and look. Snakes will typically provide you with a chance to hear them, either by hissing or moving the opposite direction of you.
