any supplemental feeding,mineral blocks ,or other attractants is indeed 100% illiegal in illinois. this law was passed about 5 or 6 years ago due o the spread of cwd. why does every store with a sporting goods dept sell the stuff? i dont know. however before it was illegal i used deercaine every spring and summer with tremendous results. i do believe that deer are only attracted to these sites during certain times of the year i:e: fawning,lactating, antler growing times. much like scents its not going to be the magic answer to scoring that monster buck.
