I have used the red colored mineral blocks, Deer Cane, and Trophy Rock in the past.

Do any of you have a homemade mineral lick recipe that they like and seems to be highly effective, that is cost effective?

Just thought I'd see if there is a better option out there that you may use that might save a little money.

Thanks for the incoming input.

What I been using works good you add a pack of Kool aid to it if you want. Or you can buy you a bucket of lucky buck

Just buy the 4% phosphorus premium cattle mineral. It’s almost the same thing as lucky buck and it’s only $20/50lb bag

I have a good one I can share with you. It's probably not as cost effective as what you are looking for though. I made 4 sites back in February and they are absolutely being highly utilized. I am very impressed with the usage so far. If you are interested PM me your email address or I can text it to you if you use a iphone.

I mixed the dical with trace mineral mix from TS and 1 part dical to 2 parts TMM.

I have had great success with Lucky Buck and also with any of the WTI mineral mixes as far as usage.

I try to find red clay to make a mineral site. It seems to hold all that there longer than regular dirt.

I just set a couple of red cattle mineral blocks from tractor supply on the ground. When it rains they dissolve. They wear it out. Just toss another block in every year or so.

Last few years I’ve replenished licks with pool salt that has yielded excellent results [Linked Image]

I have not replenished mine yet this year. I use what Ar1220 posted except the kool aide. But with that said, I have added two other ingredients in the last 4 years and they are now using my mineral licks year round.
