    Using salt and cameras to locate a specific buck

    A few years ago I set a cam up in a creek bottom just to get pictures of lions, bears and other Critters for fun. Most of the year creek is dry unless there has been a rain within few weeks. I got lucky and got a real nice buck on it. When I went to go set some salt in the area I thought I don't want to put it in the bottom and make it easier for a lion to kill him. I'm kind of always thinking about where to put the cams/salt lick with less chance's of an ambush from a lion. I set the cam on a side of a hill about 500 yards above where I got him on the cam and he found that salt right away. It's a really thick Hillside, had a small opening and I put it right in there. He hammered the heck out of the salt for the first year. Now he's very sporadic because lots of other deer are hammering it now. He don't like to be around all the other deer. Another thing to think of is if there's cattle in the area cattle will find the salt and very few deer will hit the salt if the cattle are hammering it. Especially a big buck. I have hunted that buck on and off over last 3 years quite a bit between archery and rifle. I still have never laid my eyes on him. He lives in an absolute perfect spot for a buck to get real big. Very nasty area thick/steep and he is way smarter than I am.

    Get salt up as soon as possible, sometimes it takes time for them to find it. Saddles are good spots because of natural movement through saddles. I wouldn't put it in a area that would be easily glassable for other people to find.

  8. Opinions on 6 inch warmer weather boots. Would like a non-gortex if could find them, not to stiff sole boot. I don't like really stiff soles. Boots I have used in the last few years, Lowa Renegades, Danner 6 inch pronghorns, Danner instigators and Meindl perfekt hikers. I have plantar fasciitis flare up from time to time. My feet liked the 6-inch Danner pronghorns the most, I've had several pairs over last 10 or 12 years but they don't make the 6 inch anymore. What does everybody recommend? Thanks
