What is the best way to enhance a natural mineral lick?
Stephen from SC asks: What is the best way to enhance a natural deer lick. I hunt in the south and have a lick location that always has lots of tracks every year. It is full of clay and in the open, but deer seem to like something on the ground. I assume this is some sort of natural salt lick, but I was curious if I could enhance this spot with salt or other types of commercial attractants…thanks and happy hunting! Winke Responds: Stephen, Make sure it is still legal there, but the easiest way is to add actual mineral. We have recent blog on the site describing the mixture that works well for deer mineral. Just go to the Winke’s Blog archive and you should see it there. It is a video blog by Scott Prucha.
