I have two sweeney feeders that i really like mounted on two small docks i have on my 9 acre pond. I am thinking of adding a third but it would need to be on the bank. We have wild hogs around. Do you think I will have trouble keeping hogs out of the based feeder?

Might be worth a little extra fencing around the outside. I don't think they would swim for the food though.

There's lots of feral hogs around my place but so far they haven't bothered my Sweeney fish feeder on the bank.

If it's a problem, they make solar powered electric fence controllers. Put an electric fence around it.

They haven’t messed with mine but I don’t know why.


It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

Most of us do NOT have that problem.

We worry about BG nipping at swimmers, not gators!
