I have noticed that you have your Trophy Rock placed on a flat rock at all your locations.  Why?  Does it help keep the mineral stations cleaner and prevent the transfer of diseases?  Thanks for your time and I love your site.  It is so helpful!



I do prefer placing Trophy Rocks on large flat rocks so they are elevated slightly above the ground.  I do this to reduce the amount of dirt deer consume while using the Trophy Rock.  Unless a parasite is present, etc., ingesting dirt won’t hurt deer.  I simply want the deer to get the full benefit of the trace minerals in the Trophy Rock!  Some minerals leach through the soil profile faster than others.  However, deer licking directly on the Trophy Rock will receive the full complement of the trace minerals.
