    Nice pictures! I had a doe on the front lawn as well this morning. Did not look pregnant and kind of lean so not sure of what to make of her.

    That's the stump is at 10:00 o'clock...the rain washed the mineral into the area dug up.

    Where I hunt, a mineral lick isnít a sure fire way to kill a deer. I use a mineral lick to draw deer so that I can get photos of them with my trail cameras. This gives me information about the local deer population.

    The first thing I do when establishing a mineral lick is to put out feed as that acts as an immediate attractant. Out of habit, deer will continue to come to the site, even after the food has been eaten. Eventually, the deer will discover the minerals and will keep coming back.

    Itís been my experience that deer visit my mineral blocks mostly under the cover of darkness.

    I have never seen a deer over a mineral lick while I have been out hunting. I don't us it as bait either...just an attractant to keep them coming in the off season.
