A salt block, but first check your state regulations on baiting. In Michigan you can not hunt over a salt block during hunting season. What state do you live in?

I would also go with a salt block.

Tell me and I forget. Show me and I remember. Involve me and I understand.

I use the trophy rocks and leave the plastic wrap on it, that will slow down the weather melt. If you put it on a hardwood stump they will first eat the rock then the stump. In TN salt is ok.
