Today, managing property for better whitetail-deer hunting is as common as hunting over a food plot, but in the late 1970s and early ’80s, the whitetail craze was in its infancy. Dan Moultrie launched into the deer-hunting business out of a personal reason. Dan’s family had a piece of hunting land in southwest Georgia, but the neighboring landowner planted vast acres of corn and beans. There was little reason for deer to venture onto Dan’s property. So, he assembled his first automatic spin-cast deer feeder in an effort to keep deer on his property that normally just passed through. His first feeder worked so well that friends started asking him to make feeders for them as well. Fresh out of college, Dan started assembling feeders out of his apartment closet.
