C'mere Deer

21 posts in this topic

Who else uses this. I use it on top of some of my salt licks all summer and the deer just love it. Came back and checked the licks this spring and the deer had a hole dug 2' x 3' and 6 inches deep.

I used the spray bottle stuff on my clover patch and they demolished the area that I sprayed, also used it on a metro hunt and sprayed the green swamp grass with it and they would go to that area to eat.

I have used the liquiod and it sure keeps the deer coming back. I simply poured it on a stump or the dirt. I have also made my own stuff and that also seems to get the job done for a consideraby less in the cash department.

That stuff actually works. I would of thought the only thing attracted to C'mere deer would be deer hunters

No secret.

WHITETAIL DEER HOMEMADE MINERAL MIX RECIPE

Ingredients: Makes 200 lbs. for about $23.00

1 part Di-calcium phosphate, this is a dairy feed additive bought at feed stores.

Comes in 50lb Bags at around $11.00 you need one bag.

2 parts Trace mineral salt, the red and loose kind without the medications.

Comes in 50lb Bags at around $5.00 you need two bags.

1 part Stock salt, ice cream salt.

Comes in 50lb Bags at around $2.00 you need one bag.

Directions:

-Use a 3 pound or similar size coffee can to use as your measure for each part of the mix.

-Mix all together well but not until read to use, keep ingredients separate until ready to put to use.

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

-Mix your mineral mixture with the soil.

Maintenance:

-Replenish in 6 months with fresh supply of mineral, and then each year there after.

Helpful hints: The best time to put it out is March/April and I put all 200 lbs in one hole. Also I like a water source to be within 100 yards.

Thanks for the recipe, I've seen similar recipes out there but yours seems to have more bang for the buck.

I have done the same thing for a couple of years now. another ingredient to add, although would double your price, is something containing 15% phosphorous or more. this promotes milk developement in does, and antlers in bucks. i get it all from fleet farm, back by the horse and cattle stuff.

i got a 50 lb bag of calcium, 50 lb bag of trace mixin salt, a 50 lb bag of hy-phos, and 3 50lb white brine salt blocks for 38 bucks!

believe me, i think this set up works better than the stuff you buy speciffically for deer. they leave huge holes in the ground eatin the dirt going after this blend. i mix mine in thirds, according to weight.

oh yeah, like harvey said, you'll want to be somewhat close to a water source. all that loose salt makes the deer pretty thirsty, and you don't want them to have to travel far for a few gulps of water.

I used the same recipe a couple years ago and put out a handful of test sights one spring. Unfortunately one of the areas I had chosen for a couple of them were logged over. I could still see some sign the deer were in the area of the mineral pit, but it wasn't always clear. I did have two other sites where the deer just pawed the ground down and made the hole twice as large. This stuff works great and is cheap.

Used CMere deer last year hunting, also sprayed a bunch of it on the bushes in front of our house in Minnetonka last fall(we usually have deer walking through the yard) and noticed that there were a few tracks comming over to check out the bushes over the winter. They didnt eat the bushes, but apparently were interested in the smell.

i checked my "salt" stations last weekend. the deer have definetly been using them. feces all over the place, and they have already been pawing up the ground next to the salt. the mix may be a bit salty, but deer prefer the salt saturated soil anyways, as in time, you'll have holes 2 feet deep, and 3 feet across!

put out that mix last weekend harvey. It cost me 44$ at the local fleet farm but compared to cmere deer and deer cocaine, still alot cheaper and definatly worth it. Ive used the cocaine in the past and they really like that, every spring they are using last years site before i even freshen it up. We will see what this new mix does for em.

    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
    • Thanks guys. Looks like there are a few lakes to checkout.
    • I really hope the wolves aren't seriously considering this. You take LeBron James off the cavs, and Irving leads them to an 8 seed in the east, at best! This is going to be KAT's team for years to come, so if Irving is looking to be top dog, it certainly won't be here! Personally, I don't think he'll be traded. If the lakers show any sign of improvement in this upcoming season, LeBron will be leaving to go there anyway, so Irving just needs to be patient and he'll be he top guy again.
    • We're definitely checking out our options in a couple of areas we like but I'm not sure if it will happen as early as next year or not.
    • Definitely something to be said about parking it an leaving.  My fees are nothing except the bills I help pay for at the family cabin.  Would hate hooking and unhooking all the time.
    • Still have my old sno-boat. Best portable shelter out there for pulling by hand. You scored a heck of a deal! I feel mine is irreplaceable! I don't use it much, but when I do, I'm so glad I have taken care of it and still have it 16 years later. I've had 1 zipper replaced on the D-door and some patching done at Canvas Craft years ago.  I think the other zipper is on it's way out, and will definitely get that repaired when needed. 
    • If you planning on doing any hand pulling at all then do not get the lodge she is a tank and would not fit in a short box. As long as your not 300+ lbs you'll be perfectly comfortable with 2 adults in the cabin. Also a cheap alternative to Hifax are a set of old downhill skis (normally $7-15 @ goodwill) I pull mine across parking lots all the time behind the wheeler and they hold up really well. An added bonus is if you cut them off at the end of the sled then they work great for loading and unloading the shack from your pickup box by yourself because the steel sides dig into the ground a bit keeping the bottom from sliding out.
    • tip to a couple good friends   Len,
      Thank you for the stream recommendation, Len! I love the layout of this stream. Fished it from 3pm until 6:30pm.  My brother threw panther 9s and I threw 6s. We scored a brookie/brown/bow trifecta.    
    • Nelson has been down in recent years in terms of Walleye fishing. Depends on what kind of water you like to fish. The flowage and Moose Lake are good if you like fishing really dark water. Grindstone and Lac Courte Oreilles, maybe even Round are also good walleye lakes, but those lakes have very clear water and will fish completely different than the dark water river impoundments in the area.
    • I think it would be an offensive and experience(post season) up grade. I all reality, we dont have the means to make the trade.  We are nearly out of money(cap space) and only have 11 players.  We need food cheap role players right now.   Only way would be to package Wiggins with future draft picks.  If the analysts are actually correct on how improved we will be, those draft pick wont carry a ton of value.
