The Gift of Wild Deer Feeders: When you send deer feeders you send two gifts: the feeder itself, and the moment it arrives. There's the knock at the door or the package on the porch. And the next thing that happens is your special someone's heart jumps with delight as they open a gift they will remember for years to come.
Ship/Delivery: At Hurley-Byrd, we do things differently and oversee each 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 wildlife feeders a "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 how America feeds their wildlife.
Hurley-Byrd Does it Differently: We handcraft each and every feeder we sell. Beginning with our own designs, buying the finest materials 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. From the moment you first interact with us, whether on our website or over 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 simple thank you, a unique deer feeder or a whole feeding station, choose Hurley-Byrd and see what a difference our feeders really make.

Hurley-Byrd premium deer feeders add class,
beauty and elegance to any home or backyard feeding station.
The days of hunting style hanging deer feeders, garbage can lids or
others is gone and no more wasted and messy rotting feed from ground feeding. Hurley-Byrd Deer Feeders are simple to use,
beautiful and very attractive to your deer.
Spring Feeding: With Baby Deer to birth soon........... keep
your feeders filled to help the Doe Deer grow well.
Permanently Installed or Free Standing - We offer both.
Which is best for you?
This is the #1 question from customers purchasing a deer feeder for the first time.
It has its legs buried in the ground and is the most secure feeder
we offer. If you know exactly where you wish to set your feeder,
this is the feeder for you and our recommendation. It will not
tip over and with its clean crisp design, its appearance is most elegant.
Why? Simple, having the ability to relocate your feeder is a real plus.
It allows you to place the feeder in one location to start and move it
closer to the desired feeding location as your deer become accustom
to your feed offering. Also, a moveable feeder makes lawn maintenance and off season storage much easier.
Secure Placement - As shown to the left. Each free standing feeder comes with landscaping spikes to secure it in place. Although, the Free Standing Deer Feeder is already very secure due to it oversized feet, the ability to spike the feeder in place will be appreciated on those windy nights.
All Deer Feeders are supplied with a set of 4 very large landscaping nails.
Specifically, we provide 60D (6") nails with your feeders.
Hurley-Byrd Offers 4 Sizes.
Which one do I need?
For people who live in high deer population areas or have been feeding for a longer time,
we highly recommend the larger sizes or (better yet) multiple smaller feeders.
A great question which is difficult to answer! Our Deer Feeders come in capacities from 15 to 45 pounds. A feeder with 45 pounds of feed may seem like a lot, especially to the wild bird feeding world. But, 45 pounds of whole shell corn can be consumed in an evening by a good population of deer.
The 15 pound feeder is for someone who may wish to experiment with deer feeding or who may want to attract a few deer or feed birds and small animals.
Here is a baseline in picking a feeder:
By no means is this the ultimate guide as there are too many variables involved in feeding wildlife. Feel free to call us and we'll talk it over.
Standard Deer Feeder: 15 pounds of capacity: Two or three deer. Most travel in threes.
Magnum Deer Feeder: Our largest with 45 pounds of capacity: Seven plus deer.
Keep in mind, you can always put 15 pounds of
feed in a 35 pound feeder but never 35 pounds in a
15 pound feeder. If you have concerns about the capacity
being too little, opt for the next larger and use its versatility.
Secondly, it is ALWAYS better to spread your deer
feeding station across two+ feeders instead of one large.
Deer have a hierarchy that is rigorously maintained and
a single feeder can be dominated by one or two deer while
the others wait. Two or more feeders set a fair distance apart will allow the less dominant deer
(especially fawns and yearlings) to enjoy your feed offering and subdues aggressive action (fighting).
Quality Feeders, Ease of Assembly and Varied Designs
Like all Hurley-Byrd products, each Deer Feeder is handcrafted from our new Preserved Wood Lumber (PWL) then assembled with ceramic coated steel screws.
( Note: 2015/16 Models - Most photos show our old cedar feeders.)
which is not just wiped on. Each component is completely submerged in a large
vat filled with finish, allowed to soak and finally hand rubbed to work it deep into
the wood. This produces a feeder of great beauty and when you set up
a Hurley-Byrd feeder you will know you are using the finest possible.
Setting Up Permanently Installed Deer Feeders
Permanently Installed Deer Feeders are supplied with sturdy and rot resistant legs which, depending
on the model, are buried 8" to 10" to 12" in the ground setting the feeder at a comfortable 24" feeding height.
Vee Shape or Flat Bottom?
The Little Deer Feeder (discontinued) and the
ever popular Original Deer Feeder shown above
utilize our "original" Vee shaped design.
A Strengthening Innovation in 2009:
The Extra Large, Ultra Large and Magnum
Deer Feeders received an upgrade to our current
Heavy Duty Flat Bottom design for strength
and far easier feed consumption.

(now discontinued) and a 15 lbs 36" Original Deer Feeder (R).
(Shown in our old cedar lumber)
Below is a 36", 25 lbs capacity Extra Large in front of
a 48" Ultra Large which holds 35 lbs.
Our BIGGEST (shown below in cedar) is the Magnum Deer Feeder at 60" in length and holds 45 plus pounds of whole shell corn.
Free Standing Deer Feeders
Ease of Assembly - No Tools Required!
Just like the Permanently Installed feeders noted
above, the Free Standing Deer Feeder comes with carriage
bolts, washers and wingnuts for easy assembly of the
legs to the trough and then the feet to the legs.
In just five minutes this feeder is assembled and
set out ready for action. Simply fill, sit back and enjoy.
A No-Tools-Required Deer Feeder.
In the past, free standing models required a screwdriver
to attach the feet to the legs. Not a big deal but we felt we could do better. The result, an easier assembly with a stronger foot to leg connection. Each foot is now attached using carriage bolts and wingnuts. It couldn't be any easier.
Spike it Down - Free Standing Deer Feeders
Each Free Standing Feeder comes with
6" Timber Nails to spike it in place.

YES! The supplied hardware allows for a no-tools assembly.

Each feeder comes with 8 sets carriage
bolts, washers and wingnuts. You will use 4 sets

How to Order Your New Deer Feeders.

you can choose either 1, 2 or 3 Permanently Installed or Free Standing feeders.
Most people order matched size feeders when buying more than one and the Add-to-Cart option is set this way.
If you wish to order various sizes, please call (877-363-0199) and we will discount them appropriately.
If you are ordering multiple feeders as gifts requiring each to be boxed separately, order each feeder as a single unit,
not the discounted quantity. Discounted quantities are packaged in one box. Add 1 to your Shopping Cart and then change the Cart quantity to the number desired. We will then box each separately with its own paperwork and assembly instructions, etc... When appropriate, we will tape the boxes together for shipping.
As always........ feel free to call 877-363-0199 and we will take care of you personally.
