Just putting this out there to get ideas from you guys,
How do you attach your bait feeders to the tree, I have 2 feeders that I keep moving around the woodland block, I’m a bit reluctant to keep putting screw holes into the trees so has anyone tried alternative methods?

Length of chain or rope, 2 hooks or similar into feeder, then chain or rope looped around trunk over a branch, adjust height to suit - remembering that you have to be able to easily refill said feeder - and presto hey, Robert is yer mother's brother!

Rachet strap for me .Dosnt matter where you site it then and not looking for a specific tree .I tend to site the hide first as the feeder will be used no matter the location .

Was bored one Sunday afternoon😆

Ps word of warning - they like to eat it if it runs out :rolleyes::lol: Friends have suggested a metal .22 proofed front for next time. View attachment 209445 View attachment 209446
Looks like a good design, I bodged a quick one up last year and they had a good chew on that last week so I’ve had to bodge it again with mesh and tin 😂 nothing at all pretty but it sort of works 🐿 ended up buying a new one from squirrelmanagementuk for £45 which actually is a very good design and a very reasonable price as I neither have the time or the patience to build another
