    I refreshed mine and picked a new stump to start a new one. Lots of activity in the last couple weeks.

    Do you have any natural mineral licks on your property that you refresh? I found one on a property I hunt and thinking of putting out a salt block to see if it increase activity. A bit of a hike to haul a 50# block, so haven't done it yet.

    Deer, on my property, are working on the second mineral block I set out just this past April. It's about 1/2 its size at this time, and I will need to place another one very soon. They seem to come to it in late afternoon/evening.

    There are actually very few natural licks east of the Mississippi , if you have one it's rare.

    The smaller mineral blocks are ideal for placement in areas for Squirrels to use.

    I freshened up a spot Saturday with lucky buck. Started this site late August last year and had no action on it up into December when I quit hunting. Amazed at the size of the hole they’ve made in 4 months. Knee deep and probably 2.5 feet diameter. Gotta get a camera on it ASAP.

    I have two lucky buck spots , didn't make my own this year they are hitting both, I also put out yeace block near my feeder and they are showing little interest in it.. They definitely like lucky buck have used it off and on for years, one of my big GA bow bucks used to be on his website..

    I got a spot with the same results except what is left of the 50lb brown mineral block has spots in the couple pounds left that have tongue marks from licking. Maybe 2 or 3 pounds left. I just dropped off a Big & J block yesterday in one other spot. Going to Rural King later today and may pick up a couple blocks and get them out.
