Have any of you used the Trophy Rock. I know its a little higher in price but it will last and the deer will use it. Just a little helpful hint. I started using them last year and I will continue to use them.

I bought one Saturday, a fellow swears it works almost as good as corn. Supposed to have minerals in it to help health & racks. I'll let you know after the season is over.

I put one out this past May, the deer have found it and are using it pretty good seems to be about 1/4 smaller.
wake me up early, be good to my dogs and teach my children to pray.

Mine is about gone after six weeks. I watched a doe lick it for at least ten minutes this weekend. Looks like I'll buy another one.

I work for a feed mill and I tried something new this year and it looks like it's working great. At a feed store you can buy white salt and trace mineral salt just like you see in the 50lb blocks in pastures but it's crushed into a powder and cheaper. I just poured a bag on the ground this spring and I might be able to use the hole they dug out through the summer as a fox hole to hunt out of!!!

Yep love the things they will paw a hole to get at the remains of one.I also think that here in MI with a poor crop year and lots of feed left standing it may be better than a feed bait pile?????Mine has been out for two weeks and they are hitting it pretty good.I will also break one up and spread the chunks to cover a larger area.

If you work at a feed store try OMALENE its grain and corn mixed with MOLASSES one of my "secret weapons"

Never thought of that! I have used calf starter and had decent luck. Do you mix it with corn and put it in the feeder or just feed it plain?

I think either is fine its the molassass that does the trick i believe. It has a heavy sweet scent that really carries.I think they sell something called deer treats that is quite similar. Also the turkey dont seem to tear it up like they do just cracked corn.

I was thinking about getting one of these, looks like yall have sucess with them, I need something to lure those does in for archery season, gots a whole bunch but they stay about 60 yards out and I can only kill em in archery, will the deer smell it or is it if they just walk by it

sometimes it seems like it will take them a week or two but they will find it for sure. Just remember that Round-Up is a type of salt so if you got any brush you want to get rid of this is a good way to do it. I have a nasty briar clump I wanted out of my shooting lane so I just cut it back some and put the block on it's stump. It will take a month or so but it will kill it. You may have to wait til spring though for it to work since nothing is growing and pulling in anything right now...

Do you supplement Omolene with anything or just use it by itself? I did some research and found some by Purina Mills, they have a three different grades of omolene. Which one of the grades would be similar to what you use or should I just ask some one at my local farm feed store about what would work for deer? Any advice or suggestions would be very helpful.

Thanks

i have used them for about 3 years and the deer wont go out of their way for it.The rain makes it dissolve faster.

i love the trophy rock salt that they have. its the same as the rock only ground up into little salt pieces. i ALMOST shot a doe off of it 2 years ago after it had been there for 4 months. it sinks into the soil and the deer will eat the soil. now that i think of it, i might go look for some tomorrow
