I have found that a clay soil works better than sandy soil. I start my mineral site with a 50lb mineral block. I'll dig a hole and place the block in it and as the mineral block melts it will leach into the soil. I will later pour deer cocaine into the site a few times a year. It may take them alittle while to find it but once they start they'll continue to use the site. Bubba Brown's Brown sugar and salt receipe works great also. I've got two sites on our property that I started a few years back and starting in the spring and summer the deer just tear them up.  @--0--0101

It's easy to apply .I just put some liquid form of deer cane down on state land. The deer love it but watch out the bears do too. All you need to do is brush away the leaves and pour it on the exposed ground. You should be fine. Good Luck!

 I don't know about deer cane ...It's not legal to use in NYS ...but some years ago I found a very old container of cherry coolaid way in the back of the pantry....well I wanted the plastic container so walked out in the hedge row and dumped it.....You'd have thought I'd rung a dinner bell because in 2 days the dogs were going crazy at night and then in the early mornings we saw what the commotion was about...the deer were at the dump spot ..I checked the area and deer ..raccoon....squirrel...I think skunk or possum...well not much hadn't visited that spot to dig in the dirt and left tracks.....

Now in NY if deer or bear visit your yards BIRD feeder they can fine you for feeding and baiting wild life @--0--0122...so it's the garbage for things like that now

Yes they are getting carried away here, you cannot feed birds if deer come in to pickup the spilled seeds. Lee showed me an article where someone in NY was fined for this.

I had success with deer cane black magic on the edge of a trail leading to a field.  If you want a more beneficial mineral check out Tagout.

I have had mineral licks in the same place for 7 years , I started them right on trails in the woods , took about a week before they were being hit really hard . Put the deer cane where you know they will find it and then refresh it regularly .  ##$%#1118   mine are out year round .  @--0--0118
