In many areas, deer stop using salt once the weather cools in fall. Now some see usage all year, but again, in many locations salt usage is more a spring/summer thing.

I've never seen deer hit salt much after early September. About the time the bucks' antlers get hard, they stop hitting the salt.

What BSK said . Usually as it gets colder they will slack off usage. Differs sometimes thought with individual deer. We have a lot of pics in the snow ! Also have video in Rutherford co in Jan with 3 bucks still with headgear taking turns licking ! Might have to do with them trying to "rebuild " after the rut ?

Imo trophy rocks sucks i have better luck with just a regular white salt lick like for horses. I'm not paying 20 dollars for a trophy rock they aren't worth it imo
