Mineral blocks and Buck Jam

5 posts in this topic

This weekend I put out 2 25lb mineral blocks. About 20yd away from one another. I then pored Buck Jam-Acorn Honey flavor all over both of them. I also poored it around the blocks on stumps, downed trees, and right on the ground. I just learned that some people break the blocks into smaller chunks. Should I have done that? Does anyone know if Buck Jam works? I used it hoping the deer would find the mineral blocks sooner. This is the first time I have ever put down mineral blocks or any type of liquid attractant. I know the only real way to know is to check the spots, but it is three hours away from me, and I wont get a chance to get up there for another two weekends. Based on others experience, will the deer still use the blocks even though I didnt crush them up, and does Buck Jam work?

Yes, they will work.

The "block topper" has worked to get animals interested in the begining for me. Bear seem to like it a little bit.

Have you noticed the mineral mix that (I think BLB) has made and posted on here? Try some of that next time; you will get five times the amount of minerals for half the cost.

I have tried buck jam apple and the corn they didn't seen to work for me. just a regular salt block is what i use now after what they did to the last spot that i had one, they dug a hole that was 4 feet around by 10 inches deep where the salt block was. stick with the cheep salt blocks and you will see what i mean!

I recently put out a mineral block and put stump licker on it and the deer just went nuts for it. I also bought some deer co-caine liquid and put that in a differnet site and they went crazy for that too!!!

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later

      Lets say you have 1.5 ah batteries now and you drilled one and a half holes per battery. Unless that ice was 50' thick, have dull blades and your auger is 8, or bigger that's not a drill you want to put more money into.  So give us some info on your auger and how many in lbs of torque is your drill?
