    Judging by their hips, the deer looked in good shape. I saw a doe and yearling last week which was somewhat surprising as we had quite a bit of snow this winter.

    Yes. Do the deer stand there and lick like a cow would. Yes some times.
    Deer eat the ground they will dig at the ground years after the block is gone

    To put a block out like that is for me
    Iím sure deer would prefer me to throw it on the ground take a sledge hammer to it and smash it to powder throw some dirt over it

    If you want to attract deer just dump out 5 pounds of sugar. Laugh if you want I donít care just saying
    Oh and grape koolaid powder if you can find it. Iím serious

    It’s been my experience that deer aren’t particularly attracted to the block itself. Once it dissolves however, they will paw and eat the earth leaving a crater.

    I’ve had problems with bears stealing them so I partially bury them-leaving the top exposed. Once the block dissolves, the ground will be saturated with salt and minerals which will linger for a couple of years.

    You can buy that same mineral in powder/granular form at the local feedstore....just pour it over a stump or in a shallow hole...

    What an area looks like once they find it...
