Just wondering about how people are treating their salt licks. Are you keeping salt all year? Putting out a certain time and then backing off?

Any benefit to an all year source?

SharpMuzzys,

Deer in some locations will use salt all year round, while deer in other locations almost complete stop utilizing salt during the cool/cold months. The only way to know is to test salt usage in your area with trail-cams.

Put out 100 pounds in the spring at the same spots every year.

My pictures over salt/mineral licks drop off to probably 10% beginning mid to late October. They don't pick up until warm weather.

My pics drop to zero over salt by late September. Usage doesn't start again until late March.

I taper off in Sept......and start again in February..........they wear it out most of the year and I put out around 1000# per year spread out in about 6 diff. licks.

My observations have been similar, although would not say a full "zero". The usage drops over 90% between late August and late September, and becomes mostly nocturnal.

Can't tell you how many times I've spent the opening day of archery season perched high over a salt lick, and never seen a deer. Never mind these same licks were being regularly visited during daylight by numerous deer throughout the summer and right up until a few days before archery season.
