    What are some of the things y’all have used to create mineral attractants to get deer on camera?
    I’ve used a few of the different big brand stuff (deer cocain, Black Magic/ buck jam) and have had random success. I guess based on not only location that deer travel, but also what type of ground/area I put it in. The location is near a big white oak and the ground is fertile top soil in pine thickets. Would appreciate any suggestions for mineral attracts that work well in this area

    Here's my '2 cents' - For the spring and summer, I go to my local feed store and get a 50 pound sack of Trace Minerals. Locate your spot in the woods and rake all the leaves and straw away in an area about 10 feet square. You can till or just hoe the ground to make it loose. Then, just pour the powdered minerals all over that spot and mix it in. This will attract them until around the first of October. For this time of the year, I would just get a bag of 'Buck Grub' from Walmart and pour it (a powder) on a stump or a laying tree. I did that a couple of weeks ago and within 2 days I had a heard of deer coming to it. Unfortunately, no good bucks to shoot. But, within the next few weeks, that will change. Good luck.
