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.


Yeah that will work perfect.....there is no doubt in my mind that mineral will grow larger bucks and healthier does and fawns. The land we hunt was the same land my grandpa was born on, since the beginning they never consistently shot nice deer and it stayed this way until I started 20 years ago......in the last 10 we have really focused on food plots and mineral sites, we are also lucky to have a nice chunk of land and awesome neighbors that do the same.....Now we shoot a wall hanger or 2 every year and the neighbors do the same.

It is tough to scale down the recipe cause you get the 3 ingredients in 50lb bags....however I use a large tote to mix everything by pouring some of each in and stirring to mix equally. I use the entire tote in one day, but you could just mix a batch at beginning of season that fill a 5 gallon bucket for each re-fill, on 2 acres you could probably get 3 sites going that way?

Got up to check the cameras this past week. Bucks are growing antlers now. I don't have anything huge on camera this year yet, a few that are large forks so far lots spikes. Same old pictures, tons of deer, a raccoon, some turkeys and a new species (below). And a fun deer pic.

Also planted some trees. Planted a couple pear trees and a bunch of pin oaks. The pear trees are large and should start producing next year. The pin oaks are for the future and will be money when my son is grown up

Hey caughtabuzz or anyone else. How are the antlers growing on your bucks so far? I've gotten lots of bucks on camera the past few weeks but only 1 of them had much growth progression. I know it varies but when do you guys really start to see them pop? Have you already been seeing the racks grow this year?

I did stop by my property this past wknd to re-fill the mineral sites. only had a few cams running this time due to batteries dying, didnt insert a chip fully, and one chip needed to be formatted as it didnt work....I did put up a pic from previous years of really good growth 1st week of june, that guy went 150ish that fall at 4.5 yrs old. Only one of my running cams was in a buck spot. Next few weeks they will really start and by early July you should show true form. Couple are getting out by the ears but arent the closest shots....I will get up in the next few to update cam spots, mineral sites and get the batteries all fresh for the show to start!...enjoy these though as well

Wow you have some big bears on your property. Do you hunt them too?

Yeah most of my bucks look like your last picture right now. Some smaller spikes, on had a large fork already but most were still just spikes or just starting to split some. I thought maybe with the early spring they would be farther ahead.

We are really starting to get a high # and the permits available do not reflect what is out there.....I was denied the 2nd time this spring but I think I will have to wait until year 4 or 5 to get drawn
