Hang feeder by a rope.
Putout soy bran instead of corn.
That’s what the people around here do. I have not had the bear problem so I am not an expert.

The only ways to make that SOB from trashing feeders is
1) quit putting out feeders
2) shoot the SOB bury him and your rifle
Those are your only options and I’m sure you don’t want to do either one.

A buddy suggested this. Connect a deep cycle boat battery, give him a shock. Anyone try this?

Stop putting out corn. Hunt the deer where they live instead of trying to lure them to a kill zone.

I really don't care if people hunt over corn, but laugh because they think the bear is the a-hole here.

It's kinda hard to cram a number of hunters onto a designated section of land and everyone get to hunt where the deer live

We used 3 20' 4x4 posts and made a tripod with a pulley at the top. Use a long rope to go up to the pulley and down to your feeder. Lower it to fill up the feeder, then use your 4 wheeler to pull it back up and tie off to a tree. They can't reach it and if they push on the 4x4's, the feeder will just swing

Two things can be true. I’m lazy, he’s an a-hole.

Thats why I hunt public and not leases. Contrary to most public belief that public land is crowded, its the opposite. I have literally a few thousand acres to myself most of the time.

Bears are a problem for humans. Always have been. That is the reason our forefathers wiped them out when they settled this land for humans to live in. Should they have? That’s debatable. But they did. And now millions of humans live here and creating a big herd of bears is foolish

Delete your comment, you shouldn't put statements like that out on the internet. Someone might believe you.

Buy Carolina reaper powder and mix it with some chocolate. Hang chocolate in trees around feeder.

He won't come back

Exactly right. With a lot of squirrel mixed in. People are surprised to find that anything a squirrel can do within his size, a bear can do within his.
