Flag this photoWhen you have a lot of deer in your yard, you may enjoy watching the deer feed on the grass and plants. One way to help feed the deer in your yard is to hang up a deer feeder full of food that can help nourish the deer. When you buy a deer feeder from a wildlife store or specialty shop, you can select one that hangs from a single tree or a larger feeder that can be stretched between two trees. If you choose the larger deer feeder, it is helpful to know how to properly hang the feeder.Related Searches:Difficulty:Moderately EasyInstructions Things You'll NeedLarge deer feeder4 "O" ring screwsHeavy twineShearsSuggest Edits1
Place a large deer feeder on its side on a flat surface, then screw a 2 inch wide "O" ring into the wood on the top and bottom of the feeder. Twist the rings so that they are both vertically facing relative to the front of the feeder.2
Turn the deer feeder onto the opposite side, and insert an "O" ring into the wood on the top and bottom of the side, as before. Position the rings vertically.3
Cut a piece of heavy twine with scissors to measure 48 inches long, and thread the twine through the two "O" rings on one side of the deer feeder. Place the ends of the twine together, and tie a square knot close to the feeder, allowing the long ends to hang freely.4
Cut a second piece of twine with scissors to measure 48 inches long, and thread the twine through the "O" rings on the other side of the deer feeder. Tie the twine into a square knot, as before, allowing the ends to hang freely.5
Wrap the ends of the twine on one side of the feeder around a tree, then tie the ends of the twine tightly into another square knot.6
Wrap the ends of the twine on the other side of the feeder around another tree, then tie the ends of the twine tightly into another square knot. Keep the twine taut so that it lifts up the deer feeder for use.Tips & Warnings
To tie a square knot, bring the two ends of twine together and cross the right piece of twine over the left piece of twine. Bring the ends together at the top of the form a second time, then cross the left piece of twine over the right piece of twine. Pull tightly to finish the square knot.
Keep sharp scissors out of the reach of children.
