Hurley Byrd Does it Differently, Very Differently: 
We handcraft each and every feeder we sell. Starting with our own designs, producing OUR OWN Lumbers and assembling your feeders with
real screws throughout. We then protect each feeder with a beautiful penetrating oil finish so they last for many years. We take pride in 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 simple thank you, a unique deer feeder gift a whole
feeding station for you and your family, choose Hurley-Byrd and see the difference our feeders really make.

What's the difference between a Large Pole Mount and
Heavy Duty Mount and which do I need?

In-Depth Information.
For a more in-depth look
at each of these mounts, view our
Pole Mount Page. 

Quick Overview
Each Hurley-Byrd 4x4 pole mount is an extremely strong mount. You will not find a stronger and more beautiful mount on the market anywhere. Each mount is crafted of the finest lumbers suiting the feeder's weight requirements. 

Our Large Pole Mount has been designed
and is crafted for use
under feeders with a maximum of 40 pounds
of load. See the statistics
below. We recommend
this mount whenever
a seed catcher tray is
used under the feeder
since it offers the
least obstructed
view of the tray.

Heavy Duty
Pole Mounts
are serious mounts
with a holding capacity
of 60 pounds.
This 60 pound figure is
an extremely conservative one and
our tests have shown
this mount will withstand
heavy wet snow loads
exceeding 80 pounds in
high wind conditions for
long periods of time.
This mount also has a
certain ornamental
quality with its tapered
supports. If you live in
an area of heavy
snows, high winds or
have issues with
mammals climbing all
over your feeders,
we highly recommend
this mount.

Actual Feeder Weights
Not seed capacities.
MD: 12 Pounds +-
UMD 14 pounds+-
ELMD: 15 pounds +-
ELUMD: 18 pounds +-

Heavy Wet Snow will
weigh as much as 20.5
pounds per cubic foot.
An Extra Long Ultra
Mourning Dove has
the capability of holding
4 cubic feet of snow
on its roof.
As an extreme example of the ELUMD:
Snow Load: 82 pounds.
Feeder Load: 18 pounds
Seed Load: 25 pounds.
Grand Total:
125 pounds.
This feeder MUST use
the Heavy Duty Mount. 

Your conditions will dictate which pole
mount you need.
If you have any doubts,
purchase the heavier of the two mounts.

nearly 10 years until we took them underground in 2014 (AKA: not available to the public).

Now for 2019 they are bigger and better than ever due to our amazing FFY Program Lumber.
Along with being fully redesigned, they'll now be know as Big Honkin Bird Feeders.
