I've used Deer cane before on the Neches River years ago. Nearly 22 years ago come to think of it. Hogs would tear it up before deer really had a chance to get into it. I do remember seeing deer tracks in the massive holes in the earth from the hogs rooting up the cane though. If memory serves me they make a block. Seems like I remember it lasting a bit longer oviously but with the amount of rain fall in east Texas even the blocks would dissolve quickly. The old faithful Apple Corn seemed to do the best back then. Anyway good luck this year!
God Bless Texas!!! Godspeed our Military!
