    Just like the title says. Found the propane heater linkage, plus the feeder and waterer would be easy to replicate. Just wondering if someone has built one, and has pics. Once I see it, I could probably build one based on a tractor frame. Have a 100 acre spot I'd like to populate.

    I thought about it, have you seen the commercially available one? Looks pretty nice, even for $1,000
