How to Choose the Size of a Deer Feeder

Deer FeederLearn how to choose the perfect size for the deer feeders on your property. Mumme’s Inc. wildlife specialist, Lance Cote, shares his tips on how to choose a size for your deer feeder in part 6 of Mumme’s Inc Deer Program Q&A.


What size feeder do I need?

We recommend going with a thousand or two thousand pound feeder because you will grow into the capacity over time and spend less money on labor and filling it up. Just because you buy a two thousand pound feeder doesn’t mean you have to fill it up at first.
