Trophy Rock

I bought a couple of trophy rocks and placed them out over the weekend . Do any of you see a difference in drawing deer in with those over a basic mineral block ? I guess the "rock" blends in better , but is twice the price and less weight to boot . Great weekend to get out and place cameras . Now hope the deer/bear are drawn to the minerals.

Enjoy each day afield as if it were your last.....take the time to take it all in !

Re: Trophy Rock

I've tried several different brands/types of minerals. Trophy Rock seems to work better than the rest where I'm located. The does hit it especially hard this time of year, so there must be something in it that they need to produce milk for the fawns.

Re: Trophy Rock

I use them and place them beside all of my feeders. I have tried 30-06 mineral supplements and 2 other "bagged" minerals with minimal success. They LOVE the rock though. Have had very good luck with them.

Re: Trophy Rock

I was contemplating on buying one, but I went with the Record Rack Deer Block simply because it was 33 lbs. versus the 12 lbs. of the Trophy Rock for the same money. The Record Rack block seems to work quite well. I bought two a little over a week ago and I had to buy two more just the other day to replace the first two that were decimated by deer/coons.

The only gripe I have is that the coons also go crazy for it.

The Trophy Rock will last months!! That block will last maybe 2 weeks. Once it rains that block is done. Go buy a trophy rock!

Re: Trophy Rock

I use the trophy rock as well!!! I second the doe hitting it hard this time of year... I've gotten pics of them ignoring the corn and going to town on the rock instead. I've used them for about 2 years or so and they last atleast 6 months regardless of weather. And once they are gone the deer will dig up where the rock was sitting to get the minerals that went into the soil!! Highly recommend them!!!!

There's nothing like a day in the woods.....

Definitely true. Once it rains, it gets pretty soft.

Re: Trophy Rock

I've had great sucess with trophy rocks too, doe are also hammering mine right now. Buck not so much, I have the rock placed next to my feeder with purina antlermax and corn mixed with it.

It's not an addiction, its my passion.
