Site Selection Tips
Select a shaded area near active deer crossings
Sandy soils will leach minerals sooner than heavy clay-type soils
Allow for a total site diameter of 10 feet
Create two sites per 100 acres
Directions For Use
Clear all debris in a 4-foot diameter
Loosen soil once area has been cleared
Pour liquid directly onto site
Minerals can help pattern deer year-round, but bucks and does consume different amounts seasonally depending on their needs.
Early Spring: Mineral consumption is high due to does carrying fawns and bucks seeking out minerals to grow new antlers.
Spring: Mineral consumption remains high while does nurse fawns and bucks continue antler development.
Summer: Deer consume minerals as needed for improved overall health, including healthy digestion. Bucks reach final antler growth potential during this time.
Fall: During the rut, does consume more minerals and bucks consume fewer. However, rutting bucks will seek out mineral sites in search of does who have visited the site.
Winter: Mineral consumption aids in preparing the herd for the cold months ahead.
