I scratched out a small hole, about a foot long and eight inches wide and about four inches deep, and poured a gallon of the pre-mixed stuff in it......came back a week later and the deer had dug out the hole twice as deep and half again as wide\long.

I've used the powder and the blocks before with good results, but never this quick....

I have found the blocks are the best to establish a site. Once the site is established then any of the other mixtures will work. The block is not effected by the soil type like the powder or liquid in establishing a location.

Also you will get more visitation to a site in the late winter and early spring. I keep my location stocked up year round. I have used 9 blocks, one bag of powder, and one jug of liquid this year so far maintianing the site.

save your money a quart of rock salt does just as good,just pour it over a rotton stump pour water over it for a quit start,let the rain do the rest.takes a about 2 weeks.

What do you think about the bags of salt you can get at Culligans for a water softener?? I think it's a 50 pound bag and fairly cheap. Seems to me that if you dig that stuff into the ground it should be a fairly inexpensive way to go. I would still use corn and some sweet stuff in addition to the salt.


Cheers.....
