    This feeder will last.... Ugh! I had about 300 pictures of these two over the last two weeks on 5 different cameras scattered over 120 acres.

    Goodness. Got a buddy that hunts a place in Eastern Pulaski Co and it's loaded with bears.

    Bears make it fun going in way before first light.

    Your best bet is to pull that feeded before they destroy it.

    If the bears are there you are wasting hard earned money on feed, the deer will leave the area.

    ^ What he said. As long as you have corn there, they will not leave.

    It's pretty late for this year, but switch from feeding corn to running a mineral lick for next year and it won't be a problem anymore.

    Now my buddy who hunts the bear area never said this. He's loaded with big deer. Interesting.

    I have a pic of 19 coons under my feeder. Not sure if your 2 bears or my 19 coons would eat the most corn.

    I have always heard deer will vacate areas holding bears.

    The thing is these bears and the coons aren't going anywhere,just like going to Macdonald,s to them.If they got water close by ,they won't be far.

    Interesting... I was still getting deer pictures at this location when I pulled the cards last and had the bears. I'll pull cards again next week and see if the deer pictures have decreased. I'm also feeling like they will because the bears seem to just camp out at the feeder literally laying down under it for 3+ hours at a time. I certainly don't plan on putting out any more corn. I'm really hoping they leave, but if they don't I'll buy the $30 Tag and go after them with a muzzleloader in December. :)

    I hunt N Central Ky so have no experience with them but my pals that do feel the same as you. They hate them.
