Any good suggestions or photos for building a wooden corn feeder with a small roof behind my house?

Can't tell if that is a metal or wooden roof in the picture, but two sheets of corrugated roofing and a wooden frame is about all this would take. I would personally make it so that the "troff" would be removable/replaceable.
    JM, I've not had any experience with bears either, but I've worked with cattle my whole life and I figure if a bull can't tip something over a bear can't either.

      Sounds like the Hickory Run feeder was illegal according to PA law. Game feeders are not to be in use well before any game season. If there is just one corn kernel, sunflower seed, or salt grain. That could be trouble for property owner and others for a long distance around. But, the pictured feeder looks fine.

          @Gary,
          Hah...you caught me. But you've got my creative juices flowing now. I'm actually debating building one like in the photo now.
          @Red Angus,
          That's a good point. Cows don't have claws, but they definitely like to lean and bump against things.

            Send the PA Game Officers out there they will make a fortune. I was a guest for a few days but all the neighbors had feeders. One guy's wife worked at a cookie factory. Every day she brought home boxes of stale cookies. The Bears were banging on her glass sliding door for those cookies. One cookie was thrown and land on top of their picnic table. The bear went up and the table was bowing inward. I don't understand why the table didn't break in half from that fat black bear.
            I will never forget standing in that room and watching PA Bears eat cookie after cookie.?

              A York policeman saves a skunk. I hate to post another thread.
              Check it out on this short video. There must be a safer way?

                I remember a pizza shop owner putting out old pizza. Bears,deer and many others ate that pizza. He would shoot at night. He was eventually caught. Carbon County PA.

                  Bulls don't stand up to rub their backs either. It could upset the apple cart??
