As Spring Approaches, It's Time to Establish Mineral Sites

With a mild winter across much of North America, there is very little snow covering the ground and people in many areas are already experiencing spring weather. Although the first real surge of green-up is still a month or more away in much of the whitetail's range, it's not too early to start making plans. One of the best ways to help deer in your area - not to mention draw them in front of your trail cameras - is with minerals. Minerals are both highly attractive to deer and beneficial to their overall health. And as deer begin to feed on new growth in the spring, their desire for these minerals will increase and stay high throughout the spring and summer as bucks develop antlers and does look for added nutrition to aid in the latter stages of fawn development and lactation.

There are a lot of mineral products out there, but one of the easiest to use is the new Mineral Mizer Bag. Unlike most minerals, which are poured onto the ground, the Mineral Mizer Bag is a product you hang from a tree. The porous bag uses moisture in the air to slowly drip a steady supply of minerals onto the ground. This design maximizes the use of your minerals and lasts up to a year, reducing the number of times you have to visit the area to refresh the mineral supply. That, in turn, helps reduce the amount of human disturbance in your hunting area.

The newly redesigned Mineral Mizer Bag is $20.99 and is available in apple, acorn, persimmon and Bad Boarz flavors. Six-pound mineral refills for the bag are available for $12.99. For more information, or to order your Mineral Mizer Bag, visit www.mineralmizer.com.
