Helping deer by putting out mineral sites isn’t as easy as just tossing out a few salt blocks or a bag of super-duper mineral rack-grower and calling it done.
While a mineral site isn’t brain surgery, it still requires some thought and attention. Dan Schmidt and the Deer & Deer Hunting team explain in the latest Deer Talk Now episode the key points to consider when establishing trace mineral sites for white-tailed deer.
These include creating the mineral site near a water source, having some security cover nearby, and a third key element to seal the deal. What’s the third one? You’ll have to watch to find out.
Schmidt also highlights the Deer Talk Now Product of the Week: the Vision 8 Lightsout Trail Camera from Wildgame Innovations.
From Deer & Deer Hunting Magazine, the 2016 Whitetails Wall Calendar features the work of deer researchers Wayne Laroche and Charlie Alsheimer, who reveal the 2016 whitetail rut prediction, based on years of lunar cycle research. Use this deer moon phase calendar to time the rut for the best time to hunt.
