Ok might be a dumb question
How do you set up a mineral station? Like how to prepare the soil ect... And should I combine different minerals?

Not legal to do so right now unless it's within the specified distance of a residence, check the recreational viewing regulations. After Oct. 1st you can legally put it out in other areas but deer tend to stop using minerals much after the velvet starts to drop.

What has worked best for me was to mix crystallized softener salt with Purina Antler Max 2:3 ratio and then rake it into the dirt in a 10 foot circle. You can also add other trace minerals if you want. No actual evidence that deer benefit from minerals but it does work as an attractant for getting pictures.
