Anyone mix these salts for deer?

Recommended Posts

I was going to plant a food plot on my property up north but never got around to it. Looking on u tube I see a lot of these mixes that people use that are cheap and seem to work. Most have Trace mineral salt and di calcium etc. Anyone tried these?

Price has jumped in the last few years but have been using this for about 15 or so. The number of pictures doubled at different spot tripled using this mixture. It's best to get the di from  a co-op it's about $15 there. I changed the price below for what I spent this year. Use to be able to make for about $22 when I first started using this.

We use the above recipe but use 1:1:1 ratio. Works best in early spring but they visit regularly I guess. Pick locations wisely....they will dig a hole!
