Early Spring time is when they need the salt/minerals the most, Iíve been trying to resupply salt spots earlier rather than later. And itís good to have the cams/salt out early, getting to watch them progress threw their growth season.

I prefer loose salt, selenium blend. Much easier to pack in a gallon sack full than a whole block

Block guy myself .
Loose salt is good also.

Just whatever you prefer, I had moose and elk vacuum up the loose stuff.
So I went to block for the longevity.
With that, sometimes I like to set it ,and forget.

I rather piss in the wind,then have piss down my back.

Trace mineral salt with selenium. I like using it over a block for a couple reasons. First is that I can spread it around and actually stir it into the dirt/old stumps etc. If I am on public property, I especially like granular because its not as obvious which means hopefully not as likely for a camera thief to find and swipe my camera.

Salt (granular with selenium) has proven to work well for me.   I had a spot for mule deer where I used deer cane years ago and after it took hold, the deer ate a hole in the ground so deep you couldnít see their heads when they used it.   Deer cane (the white powder) has to be wet to activate it.  It produces an ex other mic reaction when it first gets wet, so deer wonít touch it till it rains a lot.   I usually take a couple gallon bags and put these stands close to water so I can mix it on the spot.

I also have a theory that big bucks get suspicious of blocks. Itís just a theory, but I think they know thereís something funny about that perfectly square delicious block. But Iíve seen plenty of pics of big bucks on blocks so itís not a flawless theory haha

I like that theory, you would think the deer would be suspicious of it

Exactly what I do! I use granular minerals and a trophy rock since theyíre a little less noticeable also over blocks especially once they tear the ground to nothing but dirt and expose natural rocks they fit right in.

Selenium mineral block but all of my cameras are on private and easy access
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.
