Provide a Daily Supplement
Another great stalling tactic, where legal, is to add several mineral sites between known buck feeding and bedding areas. After filling up on groceries, bucks will hit these sites before bedding down for the day, to pack in some extra vitamins and minerals. Put on rubber boots before walking into the area, then use a shovel to dig each site 8 to 10 inches deep and a couple of feet in diameter. Then add a commercially available mineral mix. Put the licks right along bedding trails so that bucks heading for their daytime lairs will almost certainly stop, linger, and eventually pass by your stand when there's plenty of light for you to make a good shot.
