stump licker

Postby bellyacher » Mon Jun 03, 2013 11:38 pm

stopped at tractor supply a few months back and they had a bunch of hunting stuff on clearance. they had some stump licker marked down to $1.99 regular price $19.99. so what the heck Ill give it a try for that price. Now I wish I had bought several gal. jugs. I poured out about 1/4 of the jug on a pine stump that was 12"-14" tall and about 8"-10" across. Went back a few months later 'last weekend' and to my suprize the stump was mostly gone and eaten several inches into the ground. Now this was not a rotted out stump it was still hard. Pics don't really show it that good,but they tore it up.

I put some out couple years ago and they would eat the corn near it but not touch the block. 2-3months later they were hitting it hard. I put out a bag of mineral salt back in January same thing didn't touch it till around March-April but tore it up once they started hitting it. I'm not sure why they wait but as long as they are eating it I'm going to put some more out. I put out some of the "juice" stuff from walmart when it was on clearance and the hogs loved it. Now sure if the deer really got a chance to try it. lol
I like animals, they are tasty!

Holy smokes! :eek That looks like poison ivy all over there. Better be careful around that stuff. It'll eat you up.

We put mineral licks out in a couple of spots in Feb up in Live Oak, not sure what they're doing to it now but they didn't touch it for at least the 3 weeks we were back up there. Need to check in again to see whats going on with it. The squirrels ate the heck out of the corn though. Should be some healthy ones up there by now and squirrel ain't a bad meal! :chef
