Re: Preparing for next season question
In the areas of KY where we've hunted for the past 44 years,deer are scarce.
EHD? The severe ice storm that destroyed trees/blocked trails/changed patterns?Dunno.
But I will tell you what has worked for us in the past.
Bags of plain white salt,from your nearest Farm supply store.Spade up an area ~3' in diameter,dump in 50# of salt,spade enough to mix it in and dump in 5-10 gal. of water.
Don't wait 'til April to start!12/9/09 is a great day to start.
Couple things to keep in mind:It needs a year-round water source within 300-500 yds. to be used much (at least around here.)
Other issue: by starting out with plain salt,you can gradually switch over to mineral salt,or one of the Internet formulas.Maybe it's just here,but not much luck starting out with mineral mixes.
And put it on a slight slope,so rain will drain off after saturation,instead of forming a stagnant puddle.
Hope that helps.But start now!
