We have had deer consume a deer block in a day, we discovered that they are getting a little help. We call them crack blocks because we have seen a deer eat on one for an hour like they were addicted to it. Kind of like me and a bag of Doritos. A fellow hunter decided that it would be a good idea to bust up the block with a sledge hammer to make it easier for deer to eat on, and they did eat a little bit. The times on the photos are correct. The crack block did not make it till midnight.

It takes you an hour to eat a bag of Doritos?


I work hard, drink a little and hunt when I can.

Hi-Pro GX 30-30 Deer Block.
I pick them up at Mason Feed. $10.00 each.
I am sure any Hi-Pro dealer has them, I have had other brands of blocks go quickly as well, just no photos to see what is eating them.
