Chad and I found one in the area we hunted some a while back. Someone took an old pair of jeans, tied the legs closed, filled them up with rock salt, ran a wire or rope through the belt loops and hung it from a fairly high limb. Where the water dripped from the jeans the deer had bored a hole about a foot deep. Not very big in diameter but they definitely liked it. Haven't tried it myself but as I stated I have seen this in action. All the deer trails in the area led straight to this thing and I tend to believe it's because it always stayed fresh and salty with every rain.
My grass is blue and my blood runs orange.

The way I do it is use a burlap sack and put one 50 lb block in, then hang it from the tree also you can simply place the block in the crotch of a tree and watch them tear the tree up. Do not put it in a valuable tree as both the salt and the deer will kill the tree.

You can buy Big salt blocks with a hole in the middle.Run a nylon rope thru the middle and hang it from a tree limb. It works best when hung over a stump or log. They chew the wood and eat the dirt.I learned this in La.we did it to keep cattle and hogs from chewing up all our salt.

Buy a 25lb bag of granulated salt,pour out on a stump and let the rain soak it in. Makes a great lick for $3.00

been doing that in the same place for years with old 6 pocket BDU pants....I even fill the pockets up.

I got a hole big enough to drive a Volkswagen into.

That just didn't sound right did it?
