Can I ask what is the best mineral lick or attractant for deer in your opinion. I want to incorporate this into my work in SE Asia. But I've never used them before, even back in the US.

Looking for something that draws animals into a specific area.

If you're just looking to get pictures then plain old watersoftner salt. Dump it out, mix it up with the soil and let it go. I dump a little grape kool aid powder on it so they find it quicker but once they find it they keep coming back.

You might want to try a mix of two pounds of table salt, two pounds of sugar, two pound of baking soda and six packs of grape Kool-aide (not the per-sweetened); it works very well and, except perhaps for the Kool-aide, you should be able to buy the ingredients almost anywhere. One potential problem is that the pile of mix will probably turn blue when it gets wet -- that could be mostly solved by stirring it into the soil when you put it down or putting it in a small hole.

I have a friend who worked in Sumatra and got to know the muntjac poachers. They used a lure made from fermented human urine. Used a section of bamboo as a container, filled it halfway and let nature (=bacteria and airborne yeasts) do the rest. Wired it to vegetation close to the ground. Whenever they checked their snares they'd take a leak in the piece of bamboo.

Codger, that's a neat trick...I'll have to give that a try...no need for much of anything...bamboo everywhere and well, the other every hour or so...I actually leave urine on a piece of wood on the trail that I have my camera pointed at....it'll stop a cat in it's tracks.....Hah...! thanks for sharing...!

Molasses or Stump Likker work well, just pour a little on a log in front of the camera.
