The Target Feeder™ is a biodegradable target, similar to a clay target, that becomes food for wildlife when it breaks apart and falls to the ground. The targets are launched the same as clay ones, but are made of edible food items, such as molasses, seeds, grains and other natural components.
The Target Feeder™ is great for target practice, provides a food source for wildlife, and is a fun way to keep from polluting the ground with clay pieces. It is an eco-friendly alternative to shooting clay targets which change acid levels of the soil and endanger the wildlife. The Target Feeder™ provides multiple services; doesn’t pollute the soil, feeds the wildlife, and allows target practice to be fun with no clean-up.

The Target Feeder™ is a biodegradable target disk device for hunters which breaks apart into edible pieces of food for small and large animals in the hunting zone when struck by a shell from a shotgun. The disk is made for use with a launching device and is made from natural ingredients comprising: a mixture of ingredients to produce food for wildlife, including: a sweetener to sweeten the mixture for consumption, a variety of seeds to feed wildlife; a fragrance agent to attract wildlife; a solidifying agent to harden the disk; and a predetermined amount of water to serve as a mixing agent for the sweetener, seeds, fragrance agent, and solidifying agent; and a disk mold to contain the mixture. Current clay pigeon molds may be used.
The Target Feeder™ disk is formed from biodegradable material adapted to break down into carbon dioxide, water, and biomass. The mold has a hollow interior to contain the mixture; an opening; and a removable covering to allow pouring of selected mixture into the hollow interior.
The mixture is heated and placed into the interior of the mold and cooled to harden. The disk mold is launched by a launching device for targeting by a user, and upon being hit by shells from a shotgun, breaks apart. The disk shatters into edible pieces when shells from a shotgun impact shatter the disk mold, thereby releasing edible contents.
Materials needed to produce the Target Feeder™:
- Seeds and grains
- Corn syrup
- Solidifying agents
The Target Feeder™ is covered by United States Utility Patent: 9,879,948
