They really like my mixture
« on: October 23, 2018, 12:47:15 PM »
The deer are really hitting my mineral sites which I put down my homemade mixture of minerals and a BioRock obtained at Walmart....the mixture is 5 lbs of non-iodized salt and a box of Arm&Hammer super washing soda...plus the BioRock which is like a trophy rock only half the price (8.88) and the total cost would be 13 or 14 bucks includes rock without rock about 5-6 bucks. on the pics notice the dig marks from the hoofs ....they have dug a mineral site where I first put minerals from 5 years ago and are still scraping there. turks like it too

The Tractor Supply near my land carries a mineral block with Selenium in it. I'm wondering if that aids in Antler growth. They are illegal to use in NY but sell for livestock.My farmer put one in his field for his cows.Just wondering if the deer hit it at night.

selenium and zinc are some of the micro minerals deer use in very small amounts. too much could be toxic. phosphorous and calcium are the macro minerals that most influence antler growth
