Get the salt with selenium if you put out anything at all.  The selenium helps to combat the hoof rot.

no, not the deer.  But If you are putting out blocks where elk are at, why not do selenium?  I don't think they cost any more, or not much more.

Ive found that the rock looking licks you buy at feed stores for horses work great. Also, the primos red spot stuff works pretty well on the wt

I have a lot of deer (many regulars) around my house.  They will not touch a salt lick.  They'll eat apples, cherries, strawberries,  bread, dandelions, and my fruit trees though!
Our friends have had good luck stringing a fishing line around their garden at about a Deer's chest level. I guess they can't stand being touched in the dark by something they can't see.  :tup:

I enjoy working for my heat. I don't just press a button or twist a thermostat dial. I use the big crosscut saw and the ax, and while I'm getting my heat supply I'm working up an appetite that makes simple food just as appealing as anything a French chef could create.
