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

They are a bit pricy.

However, there are a couple things I like about them:

1) Deer seem to have a slight preference for the trophy rock over other salt.

2) Hiding a salt lick.

If you don't want others to see where you're starting or keeping a lick, this can be the way. The "Trophy Rock" salt rocks just look like a rock and can be much more inconspicuous than a big hole in the ground or a pile of salt. So long as you keep a fresh rock in the location, the deer will mainly lick the rock rather than lick the ground (forming a big hole).

I also like to place trophy rocks in rotting stumps, but you can also do that with any salt. It's just that the stump will remain longer using a trophy rock since the deer mainly lick the rock rather than tear up the stump trying to get to poured out salt.

The deer I hunt like those 50 pound blocks of mineral and salt at TSC. I like them because they're about $7.

And that's the crazy part yamaha200. On some properties, Trophy Rock will see some usage all year round. On other properties, Trophy Rocks are purely a spring/summer attractant. I've never been able to figure out why this difference exists.
