    Once they find them they'll hit them pretty hard in the summertime.

    I used it last spring and throughout the summer. Seemed to work great. Had 1 set of pictures that lasted about 30 minutes of 4 does that never moved from the spot. Didn't get much buck action on the spots though. I would always mix it with corn and some of the pictures actually had the does pawing at the corn (looks like they are digging down for the deer cane.)

    Yeah they'll hit it then too. But in my exp. they hammer it in summertime. I'd also recommend keeping somewhat near water. Also try mixing it with a salt block.

    I put both out about 1 month ago right beside my corn feeder. I have a Bushnell Trophy Cam that covers the feeder and both mineral sites. I have gotten close to 4000 pictures and not a single deer was photographed on the minerals. Perhaps they will start hitting it this Spring?? Of interest though is I have a 50# trace mineral block about 50 yards away that is still getting hammered, not as much as during the summer but definitely getting hit daily.

    i put one of those small deer cocane blocks out since walmart is damn near giving them away, and its been covered in snow ever since. That was 2 days after christmas. I dont think they know its there.

    this is Dec.28th



    Camera is in the same spot, never moved.

    I use the powdery version right on the ground before or when it is raining, blacktails seem to love it. They eat the ground to get to it. The bears like the molasses smell, that cost me a camera this year though, lol.

    its funny you say that cuz I also bought some bags of blk magic deer cane for $3.60 a bag, plus some 1 gallon wildgame flavored juiced mineral lick liquid for $4.50 at walmart. at these prices its worth trying these other products & will have enough to last the year or more, even thinking to go back & buy more of the stuff to last me sevveral years.

    1 thing people have problems with mineral licks is they expect deer to use them during the fall or winter, its not gonna happen! deer will not use mineral licks during fall/winter & if they do it'll be a rare thing. get your mineral licks/sites out there in the early spring & if its a new site sweeten up the site some so they find it faster.

    They'll hit it hard spring and summer. This time of year, the deer don't touch minerals much. Once the bucks start growing next year's antlers and the does start nursing fawns, they'll start hammering the minerals again. I usually find a stump, sit a salt block on top and poor deer cane or another powder mineral over the top. You'll have to find a new stump after a year or two though, because the deer will have it eaten.
