Where in Ga. are you hunting? . I hunt over in Randolph County. By Albany. Haven't seen as many deer this year. Still alot of acorns on the ground. Hasn't gotten cold enough , long enough to kill off the natural browse. The deer on my place arn't coming up out of the bottoms, yet. Try something that i have used with great success. Try either some soy sauce ( just dump it on the ground) or some artificial vanilla extract. Mixed with demineralized water and put in a spray bottle and spray it around your hunting area. If you are in the southern zone, you can also use peanut butter. Take the top off of a jar and wood screw it to a tree. cut the bottom off the jar then screw it back on to the lid. or you can just smear it on the tree.
American by birth, Southern by the grace of God.

This poses a question I have placecd Mineral Blocks of various kinds on my hunting property over the last few years with and without molasses or other attractants on it and have never as much as found a track around them the deer do not touch them. Should I assume that the deer are getting what they need from the enviroment so dont need them or is there something else I shuld do where minerals are concerned?
