Feeders: When you send a covered deer feeder you send two gifts: the feeder itself, and the moment it arrives. There's the knock at the door or a package on the porch. And the next thing that happens is your special someone's heart races with delight as they open a gift they will remember you by for years to come.
Feeder Delivery: At Hurley-Byrd, we do things differently and oversee every part of the process: from the buying of raw materials, to handcrafting the feeder, to the day your purchase arrives at the front door. We send freshly crafted feeders direct and bypass all the middlemen, which means better feeders and a better value. (Don't just take our word for it. Thousands of customers rate Hurley-Byrd "best value.") We believe in complete satisfaction and lasting value, too, which is why we guarantee a perfect feeder for you or your recipient , and also that your feeders will outlast all others available and will be enjoyed from the moment they arrive and for years to come. It's all part of how Hurley-Byrd is changing America's take on feeding wildlife.
Hurley-Byrd does it differently: We handcraft feeder we sell. Beginning with our own designs, buying the finest western red cedar and crafting your feeders to near perfection with a beautiful penetrating oil finish so they last for years. We take pride in every step of our service, too--from the moment you first interact with us, whether on our website or on the phone, to the delivery of your feeders and gifts and everything in between. We want to make owning and gift giving easy for you. So whether it's a thank-you gift, a unique deer feeder or a whole feeding station for yourself, choose Hurley-Byrd and enjoy a real difference.

There is no other wildlife feeder like a Hurley-Byrd Covered Deer Feeder.
With its unique and beautiful design, setting up a deer feeding station in your
own backyard is simple. It will provide years of added wildlife feeding enjoyment
for you, your family and friends. Once established, daily visits from your deer
will become a highlight of each day throughout the year.
Like all our fine products, each Covered Deer Feeder is handcrafted with
Each component is completely submerged in a large vat filled with finish then allowed
to soak before a final hand rubbing to further work it into the wood. This produces a
Free Standing Covered Deer Feeder
Are they easy to assemble and install?
All Hurley-Byrd Covered Deer Feeders are simple to assemble. A battery powered drill or
a screwdriver handle that accepts interchangeable bits is required as we use ultra high quality torx head screws
throughout our feeders. For assembling the roof, we provide the needed screws and a matching bit for installation.
The remainder of the feeder is assembled using carriage bolts, washers and wing nuts. The carriage bolts
and wing nuts allow for easy and quick assembly plus allow you to disassemble the feeder as desired.
Free Standing Covered
Deer Feeders (FSCDF)
We utilize our Extra Large 35" or Ultra Large 47"
trough holding 25 or 35 pounds of feed in each feeder.
The trough is set at a perfect 24" height so your
deer, even the babies, feed comfortably.
The new roof is 21" wide, 47" or 59" in length and
its height above the trough adjusts from 16", 19"
or 21" to help protect the trough's contents from rain
and falling/melting snows. The roof and its supporting
legs can easily be removed and stored when desired.
All this stands on 34” feet with strong
diagonal supports. The new feet have gained
nearly 50% in length over previous models and no
longer requires ground staking. This makes
moving the feeder around your home or
putting it up for storage far simpler.
Free Standing Covered Deer Feeders provide
you with the ability to simply move the feeder from one
location to another or as a feeder which can be stored
away completely when desired.
A Hurley Byrd Free Standing Covered Deer Feeder
is easy to set up, simple to move and can quickly

What Makes the New 5th Generation CDF......... Well, NEW?
The 4th Generation CDFs of 2013 received upgrades from our years of building this feeder. Our goal was to
produce a more elegant design/appearance, better feed protection and do so without cost increases.
The New 5th Gen takes this great design one step further with our new Forest to Finish to You program.
The biggest design improvement was in the roof.
The 1st-3rd Gen.CDFs had a roof approximately 16" wide.
This worked but did not allow us to raise the roof to
trough clearance any further than 17".
We upgraded our 3 segment roof to an interlocked 4 segment, 22" assembly shown below in cedar having full tongue and groove interconnects, even at the angled peak!
Once assembled, there will be no water leakage,
even during winter snow melt. Plus the new roof
with its simpler lines is far more aesthetically pleasing.
Increased Trough to Roof Clearance
Having a wider roof allows an increase
in the trough to roof clearance.
The old 17" maximum clearance did not
allow for mature bucks to get into the feeder.
More specifically, getting out of the feeder.
With its 22 inches of maximum clearance, your
deer will feel safer and are less likely to get caught
up in the roof, subsequently lessening the
likelihood of harming your wildlife.
As before, you retain the ability to adjust the
roof as your feeding needs change. During the time of
year your deer are antlerless, lower the roof (16".)
In fall, raise or remove.
A Wider Stance
All old CDFs used a 24" foot. We felt this
was too short and needed to extend the stance.
The new foot/leg/diagonal design, we gained nearly
50% in width and easier assembly. No more ground
spiking allows quicker, easier movement and storage.
Appalachian Lumbers for 2018
As we transition into our new
we will be crafting all our wildlife feeders using
various lumbers source locally. Your feeder will be
crafted with a variety of West Viringia
mountain lumbers and will be unique to
you and you alone.
Which is our most popular?
As for choosing a size.... Time has proven a nearly perfect split
between the Extra Large and
Ultra Large with the Ultra Large
slightly nudging into the lead.
With the price difference
being relatively small, we
highly recommend the larger
since you can always put 25
pounds of feed in a 35 pound
capacity feeder but never the
other way around.
In our personal opinion,
the aspect ratios of height
to length is far more appealing
with the Ultra Large's more
being 48" Tall x 60" Long compared to the EL's
48" x 48" square stature.
NEW for 2018
We are crafting our CDF's from Appalachain Mountain Lumbers.
