If you go the molasses route you can get a dry form that will hang around in the soil for a more exteded period of time trophyseeker. the dical really seems to help a bunch

I use 50lbs trace mineral salt, half a bag of DiCal, and half a bag of feed grade lime/lick. Established a new one in late December and they are already hitting it pretty hard. Set a camera on it Monday will be pulling the pics tomorrow or Sunday.

I usually just go to our co-op and see what they got on the shelf. Seems to work ok.

2 parts trace mineral, 1 part regular salt, 1 part di-cal, 1 part dried molasses, 1 part rice bran. Put three of these out 2 weeks ago and have pics on one site already. Moved camera to second site this past weekend. Third site is hit hard already. This is in a new area and I'm thinking that no one has any mineral licks out in the area. Also added some big box store cool-aid mix.

mix 2 50-lb bags of trace mineral salt, one 50-lb bag of white stock salt, one 50-lb bag of di-cal, Mix well and use to make two mineral stations (100 lbs each). DIg up a 3 foot circle about 3 or 4 inches deep and pour mineral mix on top and stir into soil. Put these out right after seer season closes and freshen up with another 100 lbs of mix same time each year.

This is a legal mineral mix in Mississippi with the new laws. When you add molasses or rice bran or any other type of food it becomes a bait site and different laws apply.

The salt is an attractant and deer will find it and consume the mix to get the salt. It is only effective in the warmer months. In my experience it attracts deer whan the insects are very active. Trace Mineral Salt has salt for an attractant and supplemental minerals that may be missing in their diet similar to a vitamin. The Di-cal is a source of supplemental calcium and phosphorous ?. These are the two main components of antlers. The additional calcium also helps the lactating does. All of the above ingredients are normally uaed in animal feed mixes.
