    What is best mineral lick for deer in the summer?

  • #2
    Three years ago, I put out a brown mineral block and faced a trial camera toward the block. Believe or not but the only ones licking the block via trail camera were the little guys.
    True Story!

    Here is one of my salt block photos below.

      You would do better putting out a feeder of "some type" with 16%~20% protein Deer feed or a Mix with Crack Corn added.This is better then any Salt Lick.

      Go on line:Pole feeders/Deer feeders."If Legal in your state" Off~season and In~season.

        A regular old salt block is just fine---you can use a mineral block if you want to. YOU HAVE TO BURY THE BLOCK FOR THE DEER TO USE IT THE MOST. They will primarily end up eating the ground around the block. You can buy loose salt and work it into the ground to good effect, too.

          You can buy 40 lbs bags of rock salt at Home Depot for under $5
          .
          That is a lot of salt! Toss it in mud puddles or rake it into soil

            I get a bag of loose mineral from Tractor Supply. Its called general purpose mineral. Don't waste your money on stuff marketed for deer, it is the same ingredents used for livestock. It is alot cheaper to go that route.

                  Second the vote for the plain old mineral block from Tractor Supply. Lasts for months.
