We first tried this product a couple of years ago. In early June we take it out to the location and rake it into the ground, once a month we add a bit to each spot til the first of September. The Whitetail like the stuff but the elk go nuts for it! We have many videos of them fighting each other to get at the licks, they literally eat the dirt. Excellent product at a reasonable price.

Have you ever tried making your own. Apparently the key ingredient is arm and hammer washing soda with, with mineral salt. Recipes can be found online.

No, we haven't done that, will have to try it. I put some granular molasses out once, the bears loved that, and some garlic stock salt that a buddy gave us. The only animal that has no interest in any of the licks is moose, they just walk right on by. This camera thing has become more fun for our group than hunting, something that keeps us occupied all summer and early fall. :D
