Nothing is more effective at attracting mature bucks than a simple pile of corn. But when a mature buck learns that the food supply will always be there, he will feed only when he feels safe – after dark.

One apparent solution to that problem would be to use what is commonly known as a ‘spin feeder’ to dispense a controlled amount of feed at a specified time of day. The disadvantages of the spin feeder are the noise it makes and the unnatural, deer-spooking appearance of an object that obviously doesn’t belong in the woods or in the middle of a food plot.

Another common method is the gravity feeder, but this type of feeder is also very conspicuous in the woods, and does not allow for controlled feeding.

The Tombstone Deer Feeder is designed to draw on the benefits of all other feeding methods while eliminating the negative aspects. It is designed to motivate the mature buck to move in daylight- when we can hunt him- by providing a limited supply of corn that he soon learns might be gone by nightfall, in a setting that appears natural and safe. Quiet, dependable, and with the appearance of a natural rock, the new Tombstone Deer Feeder combines the best features of a spin-type feeder, a gravity feeder, and a pile of corn. Feed where you want it, when you want it – without the unnatural appearance of a conventional feeder.

The Tombstone features a high-density polyethylene shell with a realistic rock texture that is roto-molded in the USA, an easy-fill and varmint-proof cap, a high-quality German-made timer, a dependable American-made motor, and a 200 lb. corn capacity.

Most deer feeders look conspicuous raised above a pile of corn, or standing beside it.   

Their bare metal and smooth plastic surfaces don’t look natural in the field or woods.  They make deer wary of approaching them during daytime hours — when we can hunt them.

They also drop feed when it doesn’t need to be presented and it accumulates in place.  So deer quickly become accustomed to it always being there.

And once a big buck learns that a food supply is always there, he will return to feed when he feels safest, and that’s usually after dark — when we can’t hunt them

With a natural-looking deer feeder that quietly presents food at the same time every day — well before dark — deer quickly learn:

  • That the feeding spot looks natural and is probably safe.
  • But the food supply is limited
  • And it might not last until dark
  • So they’d better get there before it’s gone

The Tombstone Deer Feeder helps create a sense of safety and a sense of urgency in deer that isn’t possible with other deer feeding methods.

Over a season it will bring many more deer into shooting range at good shooting angles. 


  • Looks natural in the field
  • Releases feed quietly
  • Makes deer feel safe
  • Draws deer into range
  • Affords good shot angles
  • Raccoon-proof and easy to fill

He's hungry

He senses no danger. The food supply is limited and he needs to get there before it's gone



Until Ohio Deer Season Opens


"Upon learning of the tombstone feeder and hearing the success stories, my buddy, who was using one for a year kept bragging on them. Me, being the usual skeptic wasn't convinced. That is, until he invited me along on opening day of bow season in Ohio. After sitting for several hours, lo and behold here comes a mid 150s class whitetail and walks right in to the feeder and starts chomping down corn. Unfortunately for him, my buddy was able to make a clean shot and a short track job later, it was all over. Needless to say, I was sold right then and there. I immediately ordered one for myself and cannot wait to try it out."
