How to Use Trophy Rock
Place trophy rock in transition areas or near bedding areas and field edges. Also ensure a water source is close by for best results.
Once you select a location, follow these steps to get the most out of your Rock:
1. Place it on a stand, stump, or larger flat rock. This keeps it off the ground and allows deer to lick it in a less-defensive posture
2. Avoid puddles to keep your rock from dissolving more quickly.
3. Replace Trophy Rock when it's about the size of a softball.
Use Trophy Rock to help build herd habits, track movement, and manage herds.
WHY BUY REDMOND TROPHY ROCK WHEN REGULAR SALT BLOCKS FROM THE FEED STORE WORK GREAT TOO?
Not all salt is created equal! Most white salt and deer mineral blocks have undergone chemical processing and typically include only two to seven minerals. Redmond Trophy Rock has not been processed or refined and naturally contains 60+ beneficial macro and micro trace minerals. Deer prefer its natural flavor over other salts and minerals, and it weathers much better than man-made pressed blocks.
How do deer find Trophy Rock?
Deer can actually smell it from quite a few yards away! It actually smells like the ocean especially when in contact with moisture from the dew or rains.
How long does a rock last and what is happening when some of my rocks disappear in only two weeks?
Rock longevity will vary depending on deer use, setup, and weather conditions. Generally, an elevated 12-lb Trophy Rock will last 4-6 weeks in the East and 8-10 weeks in the West. If it’s sitting in a puddle of rainwater on the ground, it can dissolve in a matter of days. Keep in mind, if that occurs, not all is lost! All of the minerals are still there incorporated into the soil for deer to use.
Why did deer quit using my rock after they stripped their velvet?
Two things are happening during August to September when bucks go to a hard horn. One, bucks have quit pulling minerals from their skeletal system to grow antlers and don’t require as much mineral supplementation. Two, the potassium-rich browse from spring and summer is drying out and deer need less sodium to balance potassium. This doesn’t mean, however, that deer will not use Trophy Rock at all outside of the velvet window; we often see them licking rocks after the rut.
IS TROPHY ROCK JUST SALT? I’M TOLD IT DOESN’T HAVE ENOUGH CALCIUM AND PHOSPHOROUS TO BE A GOOD MINERAL SUPPLEMENT. IS THAT TRUE?
Salt (sodium chloride) is a critical macro mineral in a deer’s body—so much so they have a taste receptor on their tongue to identify it! Redmond Trophy Rock's naturally balanced macro and micro trace minerals include sodium, calcium and phosphorous. It’s a biological fact that the mineral ratios found in Redmond Trophy Rock are identical to the ratios found in healthy deer blood. We recommend providing your deer a mineral feast rather than only a handful of minerals.
Trophy Rock is not manufactured, it’s mined. Redmond’s minerals are harvested from the crystallized remains of a Jurassic sea that’s been protected for thousands of years by a volcanic bentonite clay cap. This incredible deposit located in Utah, USA is geologically unique and serves as the foundation for all of our deer mineral supplements.
Redmond’s minerals contain a few different salts. However, one glance at the natural color variation of a Trophy Rock mined from this rich deposit shows there’s so much more packed in our rocks—60+ minerals to be exact!
