I'm going down next thursday to do some scouting. I've got 50lb of corn and a hanging feeder, 2 mineral blocks and some deer go insane liquid stuff. I'm going to be looking around this creek where I saw a monster 14 pt last year. Would you just put the mineral blocks in different locations along with the liquid? Hopefully I didnt confuse to many of you. Thanks

I wouldn't bother with anything but the mineral blocks. The deer have too much "green" and fresh stuff to eat right now. I'd put the mineral blocks near where you planned on hunting if there were some well used trails. I don't believe the deer are out looking for that kind of stuff, but might use it if it is available to them near one of their trails.

x2 but I might also put some corn around the mineral block to help get them started on it.

Eh.. to make a long story short. I pulled up to a creek that runs through our lease that goes into lake degray. I noticed the wayer had ripples in it and I could hear a slushing sound. So I run to the bank and all I see is the big boy running down the middle of the creek. I promise his horns were almost a foot past his ears. I just say he was a 14 point because people have been seeing one not to far from where I saw him at.
