yes i saw the deer at bass pro, very impressive. i have taken several nice bucks off my farm. with all of my land management,food plots,minerals and trees i am seeing a slow but steady improvement in the herd. but i still have not seen 100 deer in any feilds in tn, like i would on the milk river.

Too many road hunters in TN for that! I know of a 1/2 mile stretch in Sumner County where I regularly see 20-40 but not 100. But outside of the Milk River basin, there are lots of areas where I'll bet there are very few deer per square mile. Are you in Gallatin or H'ville?

I'm doing a 3 way test between Trophy Rock, Bag R Buck and Trace Mineral block. The results so far might surprise you. TS, do you have a good trail cam set up on the mineral blocks? Do you have a water source close by? If you don't have a camera set up, muddy up the ground around the mineral block so you can actually see the tracks.
I haven't had as much activity this year as I thought I would.

No I dont have a cam. I put it beside a salt lick (5ft), it still has the sharp corners! hahaha... I put it out the 1st of March. I just read somewhere that I should have mixed it in with salt... that the minerals are bitter to them? Yeah I have a pond about 50yds away I might tote some H20. Or just use some I am watering my persimmons with. Hey thanks again for the heads up on the trees. If you get any leads on oaks and persimmons next year let me know!
