Intruders Easton sees and breaking feeder

I have a ten foot tall steel pole for my feeders. It has a squirrel baffle and isn’t near trees yet something is getting to them. Even broke one of the feeders. We get deer but they shouldn’t be able to reach that high. No sign of raccoons or anything climbing above the baffle which is six feet high. What can it be?

I have heard of deer standing on their hind legs to investigate feeders and sometimes they break them. Same with bears. Although, it's most likely a raccoon.. the squirrel baffles don't stop them from climbing. They only come out in the middle of the night, which is likely why you haven't seen them.

Any chance of setting a camera up so that you can see what you're up against?
