    I've had pretty good luck with the 4 lb bricks by just jamming them in broken up stumps. They last longer and the minerals leech into the wood. The deer will actually chew the wood to get the minerals. Good news about the does, where the girls hang out the boys will soon come over. But that's with any species including our own.

    Put out a bag of salt the other day. Mixed two jars of peanut butter in it and they seem to really like it. Just hope a bear doesn't show up, very illegal to shoot them in my game zone.

    Thats what happen hereabouts, once you get deer comming to your mineral and alfalfa ( thats what we're allowed to use here in Oregon ), then Yogi will come wanderin in to see what the deer are nosin around. I could only imagine if we were to put out some peanut butter out!

    That is a great idea I never thought of peanut butter.

    They love the stuff down here. Smear it on a tree trunk, stump or dump it on the ground. I have a bud that unscrews the lid and nails it to a tree. He then cuts the bottom out of the plastic jar and then screws it back on. This makes them work for it harder and it will last longer. Put it about 5ft above ground. He's got trailcam pix of deer standing on their hind legs to get at it when he put the jar higher than 5ft so 5-51/2 ft is about right. I haven't tried his method yet but the pictures prove it works. For the record I haven't found any preference between smooth and extra crunchy.

    hes right the salt and protein licks you can buy for your cows are pretty much the same as for the deer only theirs a specific market for the deer blocks and they cost more money. a lot of feed milling places where i live all have their own custom blend deer feed that they patented and sell. any of you guys heard of rack attack. its made right here in brookhaven mississippi by gatlin feed. i dont care for the stuff, it molds very quickly so unless you have a big deer heard i would no suggest it. the lincoln coutnty co-op feed store patented a feed called mo bucks. its not national like rack attack, you can only get it here. it works great, even if you are hunting in a hunted out area with very few skiddish deer, if you put this out just for the sake of feeding and helping them they are going to eat.

    anyways i kind of ranted on, i have heard good things about the deer cane blocks, if you live in the south do not give anything with apple or sugar beats, i have literally seen a deer lick an apple block snort and run away, i guess its possible it could have scented me but it never got licked down.

    I poured some Sugar Beet Crush down the other day and it only lasted 3-5 days. The apples do work if they're used to them ( I have an orchard). Fuji, Braeburn and Granny Smith seem to be favorites among the deer in my area.

    I like apples too wink wink. For some reason the deer dont like blocks around here. They do love C'mere Deer and Buck Grub powders

    I find the deer up here like all stock sweat feed, and unlike corn the tree rats leave it alone.
