Hunting GA. Will hunt within sight of the feeder. What time (twice a day) would you set it to go off?

1hr after sunrise, 4 hrs before sunset?

Mine are set at about daylight and about 1-2 hours before sunset. If I set any earlier in the evening the birds will get it all just like most mornings.

When we use to have feeders out we had them set for around 6am and 3pm. I quit running those feeders because my dad wouldn't ever leave them alone. I had cameras watching them to see what all was hanging around every year. Sometimes my dad would just ride down there and fill them if he didn't have nothing to do that day and he'd change the times to 8pm and 3 am after he did this I didn't know it till I went and filled it again and changed the battery and pulled my card and after he kept doing it I couldn't pay for a picture in the day time of a deer just crow after crow and at night you might get one doe or so on camera but it was mainly a grey fox and a whole family of very healthy corn fed coons

6:15 in the morning for 10 sec. I quit running it in the evening. They always become more nocturnal. I simply change the morning times to put more out during the late winter.

These are times during hunting season. Gets dark here 5:30 - 6:00 late in the season. You asked, I just threw out what works for me. You can play around with the time and adjust for the difference in time zones and legal shooting hours. Draws lots of does.

So a spin feeder at 135 yds + from any stand and in a valley on other side of a rise is good to go? Want to make sure before gets too late to shut it down before Oct 5

i asked a GW this exact question if i have a pipe feeder 101 yards away on the opposite side of a tree as long as i cant see it im legal? he said that is the way they were instructed to enforce it and i would be legal as long as the view is obstructed by natural vegetation or terrain. you cant put it out and then pile brush around it it has to already be there.

I don’t even want to see a portion of a deer on the other side of a tree. I am worried the GW will go stand on a piece of spun out food by a non visible feeder and if they can see my hunting location it would be ticket time. Also, from some opinions stated on various websites some GW’s consider it baiting if it appears the deer are headed to or from the feeder when shot.

Feeder has been out all summer and I’ll will pull it if necessary. Don’t want no tickets if or problems with the authorities.

thats why you use a pipe or dump it on the ground on the opposite side of tree so it isnt broadcast into your line of sight. didnt they omit the part about deer traveling to bait when they rewrote the law on 100 yards +. i just know what the warden in elmore county told me if its 100 yards and you cant see it he doesnt care
