To create a mineral lick – Pour 20-40# of Maximizer Deer Mineral on the ground in a pile where deer frequent, preferably close to water but not in an area that floods. Refresh each mineral site with an additional 5-10# of Maximizer every 30 days starting in early spring throughout the summer. For best results start putting out Maximizer in late winter, several weeks before bucks start growing new antlers and does give birth to fawns. Make at least one mineral lick for every 40 acres
Note – During certain times of the year, specifically fall and winter, deer will consume very little mineral. If you put Maximizer out at this time and deer do not start hitting it right away, don’t be alarmed. If there are deer in the area they will find it and start consuming it when they need it. In late winter or early spring consumption will start to increase. By late spring deer will be hitting mineral licks very hard as bucks are growing new antlers and does are nursing fawns.
