Looking good bf! Are some of those bucks hitting the mineral lick consistently/daily? Do they seem to hit it at the same time of day? I've never had that good of luck with the mineral licks, but these pics keep making me want to try it again. Are you using just salt, or some mixture?

very nice BF
Not a single pic on mine for the last 2 1/2 weeks
I don't know if the Hurricane had anything to do with it or not but can't seem to locate anything since

No.. I cannot find any consistency as to the days these nice bucks are hitting the lick. The time frame is usually late evening just before dark for the biggest buck we have on camera. He has only been visiting once every 2 weeks.

We are using loose mineral salt from co-op. We had salt probably 2-3 times a year to keep the deer coming back.

We havent hung any stands yet. We usually wait till right before we hit the woods. These good bucks will change their pattern when the season starts. Early bow would be our best chance at getting lucky on one of these. And we rarely bow hunt this land. To stinking hot, to many bugs.
