Salt lick's are great for cams to attract animals....however I strongly recommend this mineral recipe. As deer need salt to replenish their system through the summer months blocks only do that

Mineral recipe has not only salt to attract but has a good content of calcium and phosphate which are 2 main components in developing antlers for bucks and helping does stay nutritious while they milk their fawns.....that recipe fills roughly 15 sites for me and cost $43, way cheaper than any blocks that would cover 15 sites

Yeah I said salt lick but it is a mineral block I got at Cabelas. It did have calcium and phosphates in it along with around 10 other things it listed percentages for. It's advertised to do the same things you are recommending yours for, whether or not it does that I don't know. I only have 20 acres and 2 cameras right now. Next year I could try to scale your recipe down. This is all a little new to me so I'm flying by the seat of my pants so far. They did like the apple flavor though, the deer seemed to stick around for about 8-10 mins.

Ran up and checked my cameras real quick today as I set out a salt lick for the first time last week. About 150 pictures of deer in a week, the same raccoon a couple nights and this turkey... where was he during the season...

Great idea and looks delicious! Your picture is missing something though... a margarita!

We went with traditional tacos, but will have to keep something fun like this in mind for next year.

Thanks Walleyechaser. I read this article if others are interested:
https://wildfoodism.com/2015/04/02/how-to-find-and-identify-morel-mushrooms/

Morels seem pretty straight forward. I know no one will give up where they find them. But do you guys walk public land like WMA's and WPAs? State forests or parks? Do you just hike the defined hiking trails and look around or do you beat your own paths?

How do you guys get started mushroom hunting? Any good tutorials online I could watch or a book I could read? I'd like to pick this hobby up but am worried I'd kill myself or my family by picking the wrong thing...

I wonder if any of the deals will be good. I went to the Rogers one a few weeks ago and the deals weren't that good. I did buy some clothing because it was 30% off already and that day they had an additional 10% of everything in the store. I have had good luck with a lot of their guide ware series clothes. If I can get some more hiking pants, fishing shirts, etc for half off or better I'd probably buy some.

Also liked shooting at the range in the Lakeville one. On tuesdays if you brought a girl you shot for free... It was a real good deal.

Wow, those are some real good pictures. All in a month too. Do you use some kind of attractant or are they just placed on trails?

Looks like you have quite the diverse and healthy wild life population on your land.

Thanks for posting! Looks like you were on some pretty awesome numbers to go with that big one too! I couldn't tell from the video or maybe i missed it, were you using live bait?

Got up north to do some work on my land Wednesday. Checked my cameras while I was there. Same old, deer, coyote, coon, then this? What is this? Camera is 3.5-4 feet off the ground and on a tree that is only 4-5" in diameter. I think it's something climbing the tree but at 2 am? Any ideas? The game trail is way out in front of the camera and this tree is set back into the tree line a couple feet.

No reason to whack the poor bugger just for doin what they do.


Skunks do eat a lot of nuisance bugs and animals but there are a lot of other predators for those you could have around that won't burn your nostril hair out. Kill the skunk. If it's spending time that close to your house/buildings, it's only a matter of time before a person gets hit.
