I read on tn.gov that electronic feeders have to be turned off 10 days before you hunt. i can understand why that is but it didn't say anything about gravity feeders? Are you able to hunt over gravity feeders during season or not? can someone help me with this ?

What if there is food in them? How far away should I be to legally able to hunt? The feeder is basically just to keep the deer on our land and keep them coming back throughout the season.

I believe it's 250 yds, but if you are hunting the trail that leads to the feeder, you can get a ticket and will lose your weapon.

Send scn a PM on the subject, he will let you know the laws

Can't control what your neighbors are doing.

True, but you still can be cited if hunting within 250 yards of their feeder.
