Just wondering how many of you do this? Year round? Just in the spring? etc
I can't remember who it was offhand anymore, but I believe one of our Stump Sitters had some great knowledge on this???
Offer up what you have, your thoughts, observations, your mix, anything you might do to for the deer and mineral enhancements
Until a few years ago i was public land only in Florida, so I didn't give it much thought.
My current lease is a cattle ranch, so putting it down year round would be costly endeavor (figure i'd be feeding the cattle AND the deer )
This year I found another piece of land that i'll be able to hunt that has no livestock. I did some research and figure i'd give the mineral enhancement a shot. FL typically has such poor soil throughout many areas of the state, I would think the deer would benefit greatly.
Here is the recipe I was going to play with (once I hear from others)
1 part salt
1 part trace mineral
1 part dical
