The first being that with the active mineral site can I add a Deer Cane time release block and ready-to-use lick to the mineral trace block or should I move the mineral trace block elsewhere?
The second since the deer have pretty much made a trail around and somewhat through the active site to the feeder, is the Deer Cane hopeful end result going to ruin the trail therefore ruin the deer traffic?
The third and final question is that will the Deer Cane spook off the coon and or the Red Fox from the feeder? I don't know much about foxes, but am willing to learn now.
I wonder if Wild Hogs like it?
In answer to first question, yes. Add it in there. It won't affect it as it's pretty much the same thing with a different wrapper.
The answer to your second question depends on some other variables. Is there an alternate route the deer may take? Is there lots of cover around so they will feel secure? Do the deer have an easy escape route from danger? I have never seen a mineral site adversely affect a feed site though.
And in answer to your third question, no. It has been my experience the a mineral/salt site has never damaged a feed site by being near it or even in it.
And since you sort of asked a fourth question, I'll answer it too!
Yes !! Hogs love mineral sites. I find their tracks and impressions in the mud where their snouts have been around my trace mineral mud pits all the time.
Hope this helps ya some. But keep in mind that we live states apart and what works for me nmay not necessarily work for you.
