I have been thinking about getting out and putting some minerals in the ground. Hope to have some time tomorrow. We will see how the day plays out. Was curious if anyone else has been putting them out yet or are going to soon.

I will be soon. I'm hoping to get it done tomorrow and get a write up done next week sometime. Just depends on how long it takes to cut up beef tomorrow...

I will be putting mine in the ground tomorrow when I go out to check the live traps. Plan on setting the cam back out and see what I can see after it's been out for about a week or so :D.

Well I was able to get 2 different sites put in today and get the cameras hung to watch over them. I kicked up 9 deer on my way into the first one.

Not sure on 2011 prices. I'll know for sure this weekend. I didn't get done butchering Saturday until after the feed store closed. Should run me around $35 for 200 pounds...

Let me know how much your Di-Cal Phos goes for. I thought the last time I bought it was something like $ 35 per 50# at Landmark.

I'm buying all the stuff this week and putting them out Saturday morning. Next Monday, I will post my "article" on minerals. I've been doing a good bit of research looking for more info and I feel the revised version of what I did on OS (Minerals Made Easy) is much better than it was at one time. I actually learned that some information I was given early on was incorrect, so I'll be racanting my statements about selenium. (To a certain degree.) I'm incorporating some info from Matt Harper who writes for Whitetail News and other publications, and his info is spot on with a lot of what I've been reading lately.

I'm going to have some pics, a video or two, and a two part write up on this. I'll get the first part up this week, then finish on Monday with the meat and potatoes of what I am doing...

The two sites I put out Sat. where left over minerals from last year. I had just over $40 in #200 last year. I am not going to go into detail on what is in it or how I really did it, because that is what Jesse is going to do and he is where I learned this from, so I want to make sure that he is getting all the credit on this subject. I do how ever want to show a couple pics from Sat. This sis just to show when put in the right place a mineral site does not take long at all to do.

Here is a couple of me putting in the site.

If you notice the date and time stamp, this is just a few hours after putting in the mineral site.

Then it looks like they told a couple of friends for the next evening.

Looking forward to reading your write up Jesse. Hope this just helps out with the whole process.
