Mineral Lick

4 posts in this topic

Hey guys,

I tried searching for the recipe for a homemade mineral mixture for deer, but I cannot find it using the search tool. I am going to manage some food plots this weekend and I am thinking of trying a mineral lick out.

Can someone post the link?

I appreciate it.

I purchased all if the ingredients at Fleet Farm but you can go to Co-ops as well.

• 1 part Di-calcium phoshate, this is a diary feed additive bought at feed stores

Comes in 50lb bags – you need 1 bag

• 2 parts Trace Mineral salt, the red and loose kind without the medications

Comes in 50lb bags – you need 2 bags

• 1 part Stock Salt, ice cream salt

Comes in 50lb bags – you need 1 bag


- Use a 3 pound or simular size coffee can to use as you measure for each part of the mix

- Mix all together well but not until you are ready to use, keep ingrediants separate until then

- Dig or tear up a circle in the soil about 36 inches wide and about 6 inches deep

- Mix your minerals with the soil

I personally have used this for 3 years now and you can't beat it for the price. I have some old stumps that I poured it on and the stumps are almost gone. Hey there is an idea for stump removal-hence my Avitar pic smile

that is almost the same as my mix, however i don't use rocksalt/ice cream salt. there is enough salt with the trace mixin salt already. but not mentioned earlier, add a bag of hy-phos to the recipe. this bag costs as much as the others put together, but contains a lot of essential minerals. including phosphorous, which is one of the big three minerals found in antlers. try finding something with protein in it, as protein is 80% of an antler until it starts to shed its velvet. phosphorous is also important to does, as it aids in milk production, gettin them youngins off to a healthier start.

    • Probably  Canadian. Appears some zealous border guards kept the rest pf them out.
    • my bird id book says its a spotted towhee,used to be called a rufus sided towhee.  
    • Never claimed they were rocket scientists, and I did say they are terrible at putting garbage in containers. Words are all spelled right, just don't make much sense--must be from over seas.
    • You are right. But there was a whole lot of head scratching from the rest of us.  Here is a tasty sample. Thought I'd put it out here for ya just so you do not think your side is hoarding all the genius.  
    • Yea, highly doubt the calls were for well wishes and almost assuredly  illegal at the time, but doubt anything will be able to be proved. Number and length of calls along with a "no no" will probably be the only thing coming out of the Senate inquiry. Am sure Flynn and if whomever else will be well versed on a non incriminating reply. Hard to take down any high ranking gubmint official, no matter the party. 
    • I can't wait for the hearings.  Lock those filthy pigs up!  Send em all to gitmo, heard they have plenty of room there. So how did all that russian propaganda end up on the dnc server?  Youve got 50 pages of hard evidence for that i bet.
    • Reddit I believe   There were plenty of criminal things the Clinton team could have been charged with but when the inmates run the asylum the usual rules don't apply.
    • Hillary and DWS didn't commit any crimes as difficult as that is to believe. Sketchy politics certainly, but what happens within a political party has no legal ramifications. The FBI already cleared Clinton of wrongdoing with regards to the email.   Flynn and other members of Trump's team are likely in violation of the Logan Act.
    • Well, if that happens then let the chips fall but do you think they will be arresting Hillary and DWS at the same time? If so it would be a good start.
    • I would wager the FBI arresting members of Trump's team, likely starting with Michael Flynn. Flynn made 5 phone calls to a Russian Ambassador on the day Obama imposed sanctions. Trump's team defended the 5 calls by stating Flynn was just wishing him Merry Christmas, which is odd because it was December 29th.
