    Is it ok to put Mineral Blocks close to your feeder or should they be in different areas.

    Might as well make it a one stop shop. If it works out I like putting mineral/salt close to water

    This doe had been drinking out of the Rubbermaid tub right before I took this picture. Before that, she was in the mineral lick, which is right behind her. That’s the first time this year I’ve seen a deer in the minerals.

    I like to put mine close together but couple years ago was taking corn to feeder and bag busted when fell off 4 wheeler I put trail camera on that spilled bag and was surprised had huge buck hitting that but wouldn't come to feeder it wasn't but 125 yards apart so all mine are gravity feeders now

    Yep. We have homemade pipe feeders attached to trees for years but I still think they come to minerals or food dumped on the ground better, bucks anyways.
