Mineral Lick Sites Trail Cameras

Now is the time to put out those mineral lick sites.

Well I got out this past weekend and put out some mineral lick sites and put fresh batteries in my trail cameras and checked my sd cards in my trail cameras. I had a lot of good pictures of several bucks starting to grow their antlers.

Now is a great time to put out those mineral lick sites for the whitetails. A friend of mine sent me a good inexpensive recipe for mineral lick sites I wanted to share with you. I put some out a while back and the deer are really loving it. The recipe makes about 200 pounds for around $50. You can pick up the ingredients at most local feed stores. Here’s the recipe:

  • 1 50lb bag of Di-calcium phosphate
  • 1 50lb bag of stock salt
  • 2 50lb bags of trace mineral

Mix 12lbs of trace mineral, 6 lbs of stock salt and 6 lbs of di-calcium phosphate. Mix together and dig into ground and reapply about every 2 to 3 months with half the recipe (12lbs). Store the bags separate, don’t mix all at once. This is a great way to put out your own mineral lick sites at an affordable price. I like to top mine off with a TrophyRock and some corn and the whitetails love it.This time of year is a great time to start providing the whitetails with minerals. I got several pictures of bucks at my sites already growing their antlers and the minerals should help them grow nice big antlers.

I got a picture of a three legged deer on one of my trail cameras I wanted to show you. It looks like a doe and it looks like it is healed up well. I don’t know how well a deer like this can get around but I have seen dogs that get around pretty well with three legs. Would you take this deer out of the herd? You hate to see a deer like this, there is no telling what happened to it. I am surprised the coyotes haven’t gotten it. It seems like they would be able to take this deer down pretty easy, but you never know. I guess it is still able to get around okay and defend itself if it is able to get up and eat and move around. I will be looking for more pictures of this one in the future.

    Only ad 6lbs of di-calcium phosphate to the mix not 24lbs like I say in the video.

  2. Wow that is one lucky deer, or unlucky depending which way you look at it. If I saw it, I couldnt take it down. Its a survivor and should be left. Just my personal opinion
