Timba with the barrel this is what i do i use 10' 3/16 chain bolt to barrel and then drill 6 holes 3/4". Chain to the tree make sure it's on high ground if it gets wet the oats go moldy and the bears would prefer fresh i don't use much oil on my oats for the same reason instead i lag a 25 gallon steel barrel to a tree and fill with straight oil and small meat scraps that will get to the bottom and they have to reach into the oil to get them when they leave they also leave a scent trail for another bear to follow in. I use oats or sunflower screenings the bears just love them i would prefer to use just sunflower screenings because they are light we are in a no off road vehicle area so i have to carry everything in. Good luck
