Wow, those are some fine bucks!
Willie, we go to tremendous lengths to keep the bears from smashing ours. My standard configuration is hanging them off a 30' wood pole with a few hundred nails with the heads cut off driven in backwards from waist to head high. I drill pilot holes and hold the nails with vise grips and tap on the vise grips to drive them so as not to dull the points. There will be hair and blood on the nails pretty regularly but I've never had one climb over them. Even with all that, the bears will usually be waiting when the feeder fires, eat most of the feed and keep the deer buggered up. Tripod type feeders won't last a night here.
