A simple and relatively inexpensive mineral lick or mineral pit can be made by mixing together equal parts of Arm and Hammer washing soda, salt and dicalcium phosphate. The salt can be purchased at a local grocery store and the Washing Soda and Dicalcium phosphate from a local feed store. Once mixed, simply dig a pit on your property and place the mixture into it, lightly water the mixture if you wish to form mud. To help get the deer onto the lick faster, we have often covered the mix in molasses, the sweetness and scent brings the deer in quickly. Once the lick is established, it is only necessary to ad more minerals once or twice a year.
