Well Im going this weekend to grab a few items from my lease and labor day weekend we will mow, add corn to feeders etc. Just want to drop few protein blocks out just to get things moving. Any block better than others? I had few in past that just became a waste.

Look for one that is high in mineral content as opposed to protein. With the stress the deer are under with this heat, they'll get more benefit from mineral supplementation than from adding a little protein.

I saw the deer tearing up the record rack ones last season in Fredericksburg. I put them on my lease and a huge boar ate one in one night. So if you have hogs you better put them in a fenced area.
