Default Using Bleach to attract deer

I know it sounds crazy but has anyone ever heard of pouring bleach on the ground to attract deer someone said they use it like a mineral hole.

I can't believe this is the first time this has been brought up. Every year about this time somebody over on aldeer.com brings this up. Brace yourself b/c objects are probably about to get thrown.

The theory is that they like the Sodium found in NaOCl, but as Balvarik said, it aint good for them.

You make a gun that will shoot a small car shaped bullet at about 55mph mv and deer will be jumping in front of your gun. You won't even have to aim.......

Consume some bleach for yourself and let us know what it does to the mucous membranes on your esophagus. I'd advise against it.

Even if they do like it....why the heck would you dump a toxic chemical in the woods?!? Would you want to eat a deer that has been drinking bleach?

Two excellent points every sportsman should take into consideration when ultimately manipulating wildlife; 'whether your actions will have any negative reprecutions on the environment and/or the health and well-being of any target species for consumption reasons'.(including non-target species, consumed by predators in Natures' food-chain)

I never said that I use bleach as a attractant nor would I tell someone else to use it I was just askin if anyone has ever heard about it because I thought the guy that was tellin me bout it was dumb (edited by Arrow Flinger for typing around the censor) because you would think the deer would run to the next county after smellin it.

Why would someone use bleach to make a mineral hole is out of my comprehension? Somehow I doubt there are much minerals in bleach.

Household chlorine bleach is mostly water. When it evaporates, it leaves sodium. So basically after a few hours or days, your bleach is gone and you are left with sodium, which is what is actually attracting deer. But you would be just as cheap to get a container of table salt and pour it out, plus end up with much more sodium for your so called mineral hole. And you would be doing less damage to the environment. Although the Chlorine solution would be evaporated by the end of the day, you will have just needlessly released more chlorine into the air. Chlorine fumes are toxic to plants, as is bleach.

Of course, you could go to a feed store and buy a bag of cow trace mineral lick and pour it out. It will set you back around $5.00, but will not kill anything in the process.

Now this works. I've tried it myself. You can attach it to a tree or stump or bury it in the ground leaving about 2-3 inches of the pale above ground.

.14 cents a pound don't sound so bad for corn when you compare it to price per gallon for fuel.

But then again, it sure ain't as cheap as it use to be.

As corn prices rose I used less and less corn,increasing oats and barley in it's place.

Do you reckon that deer would eat oats and barley ground up???

When my herd was destroyed I still had 6400lbs of feed left.
I've been feeding around the farm since the frost left the ground(mid-april)and have three seperate "mineral licks" as well as my feed stations.

Mike
Not being a farm boy, can I get bagged ground barley and oats for feed???

Is it readily available, and affordable or is it something you have to buy in bulk and grind yourself??
