    Souinds good but a whole lot easier to just buy the salt blocks. I usually buy one take my old skill saw and cut it in half .Set half in back part of property other half on front half for hunting partner. I hunt the back half. More woods back there.

    Here's another recipe a friend shared with me. You need monosoduim glytomate and sugar. Mix the two 4 to 1. 4 pounds monosodium to 1 pound of sugar. It is suppose to make something similiar to "deer Cocane". You take the mixture out and dump into a stump or dig a hole to spread it into. I never use it but I have seen the spot where he has been using it.

    Good Luck.
