Thanks. Yes, the hole stays fairly large as we've been leaving salt or mineral licks there at least once or twice a year now for about 6 years. That spot also holds a bit of water if not really dry for weeks, so they stop by for a little salt "fix". This area is adjacent to a pretty good-sized swamp, surrounded on all sides by argriculture; corn and soybeans. Below is a before & after shot of the buck I took last season. The 2011 shot shows a big
buck I didn't see
. I took a smaller 8 point at another stand location opening afternoon, 2011.
