I put the rock out at least a couple weeks ago. Only got a few pics and the deer were just passing through or grazing on the fresh cut area.

5 days ago, I replaced the batteries in my Wildview because night pics had gotten darker and darker till they were black.

Today, after 5 days, the fresh batteries solved the problem and the deer started hitting the rock. Around 275 pics of deer in the past 5 days. I had to set the delay from 20 seconds to 1 minute due to the amount of pics. Mostly the same few does re-visiting the rock but I'm sure more will follow. Sorry I didn't have a spare card to swap so I will have to take my computer out there to transfer the pics.

No bucks yet, maybe I pushed em out of the area from walking the thicket too much. Think they will come back for spring and summer?

Here is the rock

That is pretty remarkable getting that much salt/mineral use this time of year. I usually have just a trickle of pictures over my licks in Feb. Just goes to show that deer habits vary as you change locations.

yeah there were a bunch of pics with 3 deer side by side with their noses stuck in the rock. Other pics with 1 or 2 at a time using the rock and a few of deer browsing around or passing through.

I usually see salt-lick usage explode around mid-March. Although most of the salt-lick use at this time of year is by does.
