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!

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
