PVC pipe over legs with a screw to keep it from sliding down it will spin keeping them from climbing up the legs

I never saw a dead coon climb a feeder leg. So I agree with Central Texas Hog Traps,

lots of koon traps, and lots of trapping and shooting. I had the same problem on one place, took off over 40 in a month and a half and that was with what steel jaw trap, and one box trap, and i shot 4 while i was out there some evenings.

Don't have a spinner. It is eat at their will for the deer and hopefully not the raccoons.

True. Haven't put the protein feeder out yet but they are all over my corn feeder. Putting it out tomorrow. We'll see. Put PVC on the legs as recommended.
