Saw this on youtube and tried it. It really worked!!!! Seemed to bring in more does than Bucks, but Bucks followed the does into the area.

3 tubs of Non-iodonized salt (26 oz each)
3 boxes baking soda (8oz each)
2 tubs of kool-aid, with sugar, cherry or wild apple (makes 8 qt size)
1 box jello.....cherry.

Adds up to Under $15

Did you just leave it as a dry mix and dump it on the ground?

If you look at the commercial deer licks, one of the active ingredients is sodium bicarbonate....AKA Baking Soda.

We have used a similar mix. We just dumped it out on soft ground, and then raked the area with a garden rake. Never really had a recipe, just a few boxes of baking soda, table salt and handful of cherry Kool Aid packs.

Just bought all the ingredients at WalMart for under $8. Will mix it up and put it out this weekend. I'll put a game camera on it to see what happens and let you guys know.

I put this together and set it out about two weeks ago.




Went to check it this last weekend and deer are hitting it. I have a trail cam setup now and will head back out Satruday to see what I'm getting. That looks like a doe track which is fine but would love to see a buck or two.
