Moultrie Universal Bluetooth Timer & Bluetooth Timer App
The Universal Bluetooth Timer (MSRP $39.99) and Bluetooth Timer App are a great compliment to each other for remote game management. You can purchase them separately or pre-installed on Moultrie’s best-selling Pro Hunter II Feeder Kit with the new
Moultrie Bluetooth Pro Feeder Kit. Whether in combination or used independently, this will make your legwork and fieldwork much more hands-free and less strenuous for you in the long run.
- Wireless Programming – The Bluetooth Timer allows users to conveniently set feed times, streamlining maintenance trips and ensuring minimal disturbance to the surrounding environment.
- Feed Scheduling – Enjoy the flexibility of scheduling up to 10 different feeds per day on specific days of the week. Set feed times for durations ranging from 1 to 60 seconds, with the option to choose from Hi/Med/Low motor speeds, tailoring the feeding regimen to suit specific wildlife management needs.
- Random Mode – The new random mode feature adds an element of unpredictability by feeding twice per day at various times – once in the morning before 12:00 PM and once after 12:00 PM, with a minimum of 3 hours between feed times. This naturalizes feeding patterns, enhancing the hunting and wildlife observation experience.
- Status Updates – Stay informed about feed levels with the ability to view current estimated feed days remaining, even when out of Bluetooth range. This ensures you can plan your trips for fill-ups efficiently.
Moultrie Lumen Photocell Feeder Kit
The Lumen Photocell Feeder Kit (MSRP $49.99) makes your feeder a hands-free setup by intelligently utilizing changes in sunlight to trigger your feeder to deploy food twice per day – once at dawn and once at dusk. You can also set how long the feeder dumps/deploys food in 5 second increments from 5 to 20 seconds. Once again, it is a hands-free setup, but you still have control over how it works for you.
This automatic broadcast feeder kit is programmed to self-schedule two feeds a day, thanks to its built-in light level sensor. The photocell sensor recognizes changes in sunlight, activating the kit to trigger two feed times per day – once at dawn and once at dusk. The sensor also adapts with changes in daylight savings time, to automatically calibrate your feed times throughout the year, eliminating the need for manual adjustments. The timers basic switch controls make setting preferred run times easy, with options of 5, 10, 15, and 20 second spin durations.
Moultrie Feed Bin
The Feed Bin (MSRP $34.99) is a simple yet effective way to be feeding game without having to move, setup, and monitor a larger apparatus out in the woods. This can simply be cinched to a tree and will confidently hold up to 40 Lb of your desired food like shelled corn, sorghum, and much more. This also boasts drain holes so it will never get “watered down” and spoil the food that you are setting out.
This 6-gallon gravity style feeder holds up to 40 pounds of feed and is ideal for feeding corn, protein pellets, rice bran, and more. Simply attach the feeder to the tree using the included strap and let feed dispense to the singular front port. To avoid feed spoilage, Feed Bin includes molded slots to securely fasten the lid and drain holes to prevent water from pooling inside the hopper.
Moultrie Universal Varmint Deterrent
If there is one thing that hunters and huntresses hate when it comes to managing a herd of livestock and/or wild game, is when unwanted varmints (squirrels, possums, raccoons, etc) are stealing your feed. Paying to feed wild game you intend to hunt can be expensive, and although all those aforementioned critters are fuzzy and cute, we’re not paying to feed them. That’s where the Universal Varmint Deterrent comes in. Now, you can keep them off of the goods with a simple yet effective tool.
Designed to be paired with 4” sections of PVC pipe (not included) the 3 caps allow the PVC pipe to spin freely around the feeder leg as animals attempt to climb up it, encouraging them to jump off before they can reach the spin plate or hopper. The two different adapters allow for a good fit on most square and round feeder legs making it compatible with all Moultrie tripod feeder legs and most other feeder brands.
