I know I am probably mentioning something that most all ready know but I just wanted to share some useful information.
I have a large wood on the estate I manage the deer, with a large population of Fallow. I had read that Fallow love mineral/salt licks so I looked on the usual stalking websites to see what was on offer. When I saw the price I thought they could stick with value brands!! I.e. sheep salt licks from the Agri man!!
They worked a treat they love them and they were a lot cheaper!! I placed them on some ancient oak stumps and whether there is salt there or not they come and lick the stumps. They did not work so well with the Roe, but you cant have everything!!!
