The American Hunter game feeder varmint guard helps keep unwanted varmints from the feeder kit area. By adding this you can help stop those pesky critters from spinning the feeder and wasting feed. By removing two pins, the guard swings down hinging on the third pin, allowing easy access to feeder kit. The Guard features an 18” dia. x 11” deep - heavy steel wire with 1”x 2” openings which still allows for safe exit of the feed. All mounting hardware is included.
