My 3 year mineral lick study. I rely on my plots to help me with the growth on my land, the licks are just a treat! HorseDoctor , Feb 19, Most use seems to be during the spring and summer months on mineral licks. Put any hard food block and mineral sites to your property, and you can expect that these critters will be your regular visitors. Slickyboyboo thanks for the recipe. My mixes with dried molasses added to the above recipe seem to work well, but only for initial attraction.

They appear in the wilds for all the critters, but wild sheep are drawn more to natural mineral licks than any animal of which I am aware. It is my opinion that I will stick with mineral supplements made specifically for whitetail deer. Also for those that supplemental feed, its great to coat corn with. I'll have to try that one. The ultimate goal of mineral supplements in deer management is to increase antler size and improve overall health of deer herds by providing minerals or trace minerals that may be lacking in a given area.

Patriot1 , Feb 23, We love to hear from you! It's a build your own mix. But also some soils and plants actually are high in sodium. We have done study after study on these products for 13 years. I feel that it holds it better than the soil. Wow, that is great that you all can do that!!
I have been given so many different minerals to try on the land we film on here in Alabama and I have to say that after the past 3 years there has been no better mineral than the Trophy Rock. However, there is nothing wrong if we will create one for hunting purposes. Of course, it would be good if you know a good ingredient that instantly attracts deer. Are you going to eat ice cream in -2 degree weather outside or would you rather eat it in degree weather outside. I know i can save lots of money buying in bulk and mixing going to feed stores and local co-ops, but i was wondering what minerals i should buy and how much? Minerals are necessary for whitetail deer health. You also might want to place deer feeders nearby the deer lick.
